In a message dated 98-10-12 18:11:50 EDT, you write:

<< I do not have enough supplies to spare (especially after this offense of
week). I must give them to the students who are serious about art and do not
vandalize. Please bring dictionaries and pencils to class. I will not be
able to give you any supplies, even pencils or paper until the person comes
forward. " >>

Yes, your plan for tomorrow is perfect. I am going to use it on a 4th grade
who took 2 paper punches that belong to me. I counted at the end of class, and
no one produced them, I posted a sign during lunch (before they went home for
the day) for the homeroom teacher to inform them that they will be using only
their scissors next class, (won't be using the Fiskar paper edgers nor the
paper punches).
Kids always take supplies in my district, but I am not going to let everything
dwindle. I'll talk about team building and challenging projects. I want to
instill caring for each other and the materials I provide for them. (Usually
kids aren't too concerned about other classes not having enough.) I do not
plan to consequence the kid, just have him write a promise he won't do this to
his classmates and me again. Sue
