Get Ready — School Starts Wednesday

Teachers provide school supply list

Perhaps no time of year is as bittersweet for parents as the back-to-school season. Gone are the relaxing days of summer, but back are the days when kids get excited about school and the extracurricular activities that come with it.

As bittersweet as back-to-school can be, one aspect few parents enjoy is the annual school supply shopping trip. Students of all ages must purchase school supplies each year, and parents with more than one child in school might cringe at the costs of such supplies.

Schools in Payson and Pine have supply lists at area stores or they can be obtained from the school your student is attending. For the most part, the rule is to keep most of the supplies much the same. But there are a few opportunities to purchase supplies that excite your child. In essence, school supplies are designed to help children be the best students they can be and inspire them to do their best work.

With the right supplies, kids are prepared to achieve and succeed. By letting students select a few supplies that express their personality and excite them about the new school year, they’re more likely to be engaged in and excited about the back-to-school process.

The supply lists for Rim Country Middle School, grades six, seven and eight, were published in the July 16 edition of the Payson Roundup.

In that same edition, a spokesperson for Julia Randall Elementary said that school provides most of the supplies students need, but would like those who are able to bring in such things as boxes of facial tissue and bottles of hand sanitizer.

Any supply donations that the public would like to make to the school of their choice will be welcome. Shoppers can also make supply contributions to collection boxes for youngsters involved in the Payson Community Kids program and residing at the Time Out Shelter. The boxes are at stores around town.

Why don't all the schools in the Payson District require the same items students are supposed to bring to school? What a bunch of crap!
