Thanks for the info. I don't have children in school anymore but I buy large quantities of pens, pencils, pencil boxes, folders, glue and give it to a teacher for her students. She loves it and the children love it so much. She has them write me a thank you note....how refreshing - a thank you note.

Great article...huge help to families and teachers since so many parents can no longer afford school supplies and teachers have to buy them themselves...but, what about the prices at the local grocery stores? I just saw some great deals at Kroger's.
