Just a thought - after all the talk about the pitiful budgets (I really feel
for you all!) can you talk to your administrators about possiblly adding on
a $2 - $3 art fee during registration at the beginning of the year? As a
parent, I expect the fees when I enroll my own kids. There are always
textbook fees, towel fees, etc. Barring that, how about sending out supply
lists? In my elementary buildings, I have the students supply their own
sharpies. They already have glue, scissors, etc. on the classroom supply
list. In the building where I have a classroom, if they are doing a project
that requires supplies I don't have, like scissors (in the past 6 years, 50+
pair of scissors have "walked off", and I refuse to buy anymore), I just let
the classroom teacher know they need to bring those supplies to class.
