Re: Elementary Art Budget

I teach in a public school. All our area public schools have supply lists
that are distributed at enrollment (grade school) and middle school/high
school get their supply lists from individual teachers on their first day of
school. Wal-Mart has the supply lists of each school as well. I paid $55
this year for textbook rentals, $30 for workbooks, and $23 for classroom
fees for my freshman son. Then I went to Wal-Mart and wrote a check for $75
for classroom supplies for him, and THEN we went clothes shopping. And STILL
our state cannot seem to adequately fund our schools. :-(
