I've been a room mom and classroom helper for about 15 years. 15 YEARS! My oldest son is in college, and my youngest two just graduated from elementary school and are heading into middle school after summer break. Grading papers, photocopying, stuffing take-home folders, and tallying up hours for reading logs has never been much fun, but getting to ride the bus to all the field trips, and helping out at all the class parties has certainly been worth it.
With school on the horizon, it's time to start thinking about back-to-school supplies, and what the classroom might need this coming year. Room moms and teachers often take on extra costs to make sure that everything is taken care of, and at the beginning of the year a list of classroom supplies will often be sent home with extra items that are needed throughout the year such as tissues and Wet Ones® Hand Wipes. And you think you are done, you've purchased the school supplies, the extra items needed to keep the classroom running and sanitized, but then come the class parties. Letters are often sent home to parents with lists of items needed and a call for volunteers to help serve food and decorate if needed. And the room mom and teacher say a little prayer that parents step in to provide much-needed supplies.
