I'm sure this has been discussed before, but I'm struggling with what to tell my second graders to bring the first day of school. I'm so tired of all of the junk they bring, and honestly I provide almost everything they need. Last year I asked for two book covers and a box of tissues. I thought about asking them to bring a homework folder so they could have something personalized. I also thought about telling them they don't need to bring anything, but donations of pencils, tissues, and glue sticks. Thoughts or suggestions? What do you tell them to bring before school starts?
