Has anyone else noticed that we have not had the usual glut of checks to write for school or the mad dash to get certain types of supplies requested by various teachers?
Does this mean teachers are now told not to request students have certain supplies and the schools are supplying them? I am so used to writing checks for everything from PE uniforms to language work books and scientific spiral notebooks, that I feel a little guilty.
Without donating to PIE or PTA, is there any way fund that we can help cover these particular costs for the school? I would like to see some type of supplies fund that parents can contribute to which cover these things which we used to pay for but are no longer allowed but still turn up in school.
