Actually had a teacher send me an "invoice" for $.25 one year because she listed a purple folder and I couldn't find one at the store I went to so bought another color until I could get to another store to find a purple - she supplied my daughter with the "correct color" and billed me!
WOW! You are nice, because I would have billed her for having me run around trying to get supplies so late in summer.
I am just on a roll today, but if your DD ever gets that teacher again, just get a folder and spray paint it or have your dd paint it purple.
That is just crazy to bill you.

I am going to take DD11 out supply shopping tomorrow for the basics. Then like i wrote before we may have another list when "Open House" is on Sept 2 and we will have 6 days to get what is left.

Oh and most schools around here also want Kleenex, sanitizer, lysol wipes, and zipper bags...at least 2-3 of each of those.

In middle school, my kids use the TI 84 scientific calculator which runs $75-125.00. I would have checked with the schools to make sure which calculator is needed before buying one you may need to return. Some middle schools require the graphing scientific calculator.

The middle school where I used to teach required all prealgebra and algebra students to purchase a specific brand for about $25.

Thanks for the info. I bought the Texas Instruments TI-30X IIS. The list included "scientific calculator with the sine, cosine and tangent button" which this model has. To make sure what I bought is OK I'll give the school a call this week. If not, I still have the receipt and the calculator is still in the packaging.

My DS and DD also needed this calculator but was not required to purchase it until high school. When they took Algebra I at the middle school, they allowed them to use the ones that belonged to the school. I will say however, that it was one of the best purchases I have ever made. DS used it all through college.

It is better to just check.. some math teachers only use ONE type of calculator-- sometimes it is the districts mandate, a curriculum set or what the teacher prefers.

My son will use the TI 83 or 84 (graphing calculator) in 9th grade. They used them a bit in 8th grade as well.

i had to buy a calculator as well, but DD11's (6th grade) supply list just said "basic calculator for math". i got a scientific calculator for $10.00 at wal-mart. not a really fancy one, but it's got lots of buttons i don't recognize, lol.

oh, and i have to buy kleenex, paper towels and sanitizing wipes too. next they'll want toilet paper, lol.

For DD10, the middle school requires Texas Instrument TI-30X IIS calculator. It is the approved calculator for state testing in the spring. It will be ok until HS when they will need the more expensive one.

right now our Walmart has the spiral notebooks for .20 each. They've been .05 for the last two years, so I don't know if they will go back down or if this is it with the economy.

Well, went to our local Walmart today.
Only thing was on shelves, or more like a pallet were 15 cent notebooks.
You know they have the bins for glue, etc, all empty. Then 2 ladies were starting to rearrange shelves to put things up later.
