      We have the children donate or bring in specific items throughout the school year like lids or other things they have around the house. All other supplies are provided by the school.

    What a great list! We were thinking about craft must haves the other day for home- my eight year old said that her must haves are pipe cleaners and a cold glue gun.

    I also wanted to say thank you for all of the great ideas that you post on Facebook. I read them every day and find a lot of inspiration from them. It is really neat to see so much passion and love for early childhood ed.
