    Our PTA asks teachers for wish lists every year. Every teacher is encouraged to submit their request, then the PTA and assistant p. review them and decide whose wishes are "granted." They do not list any cost guidelines. Since I am new I don't know exactly what would benefit my classes the most...I have all the basics already. Can't think of any special projects we've done this year that would be benefited by any particular items... ??? TIA

    It sounds silly but construction paper is always useful!! I have ran out about 5 times this year and so am paying for it myself. I recommend asking for it. Hand sanitizer (if the school doesn't provide it in every room already like mine does) is great. So are tissues. These are little things but trust me, when you don't have enough it is a headache!!!!

    Think back to everything you had to purchase on your own this past year, then add that to your list. I agree with all of the above posters.
