Hi Susan, I have around 550 students, which makes 2.00 per adequate. What
happens is when you have fewer kids, like 250 as you do, you will have a hard
time getting the 2 dollars to work as you still have to buy , for example, two
boxes of pastellos per table and it can't really be divided per pupil- in my
Ask for more $$. 3.00/per should do it.
