You should wait before buying school supplies.

Within several weeks school season 2018-2019 will start, and many stores are putting out list for supplies that, they think, the children will need for opening day.

As a teacher for 32 years, the only thing that the child will need for opening day is a pencil, a pen, a notebook or a pad of paper, a combination lock and a back pack. 

You should wait before you buy anything else. In many of the children’s classes the teacher will tell the child what they need for their class. 

For example, in P. E. Your child will need a “T” shirt, a pair of shorts, and a combination lock for class. You should be able to purchase these items from the P. E. Department.

All the text  books they will need will be furnish by the school, but must be returned at the end of the year. 

On the first day of school there will be forms sent home that must be filled out and brought back to school as soon as possible. 

Usually, I would find rule paper, good pencils, paper clips and many other items on the floor of my classroom that the children, for some reason, threw away. I would have enough supplies to last a month. 

There are several precautions that you and your child should take while attending school: When walking to school, always walk with a friend; do not leave campus without telling someone where you are going; do not miss class unless you have permission, if you do, security will be looking for you.

Always show-up for homeroom -- and if you don’t, a telephone call will be sent to the parent telling them that their child did not show up for school—these are only a few precaution  that you and your child should take.

You must remember if you are driving around a school, there are speed rules that you must follow. Also if you come upon a bus with  flashing red lights, you must stop, until the red lights stop flashing. If you don’t and get caught not stopping, you could be fined $200.

These are only several things that you should follow when children return to school for the 2018-2019 school year.
