We’ve compiled a list of back-to-school basics to help you get off to a smart start. Call it the inside guide for the classroom bound. One list won’t take care of everything, but it’s a big help.

The Basics

Notebook paper

Pencil bag
No. 2 pencils

** Many schools have rules about what students can and can’t wear on campus. Some have even implemented strict dress codes or school uniforms. Be sure to check with your child’s school before you shop.

Best wishes on a wonderful school year!
