Teachers: Back to school supplies are 'bare necessities'

Horry County, SC -

By A.J. Ross - bio | email

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – With only three days left until the first day of classes in Horry County, teachers are reminding parents to double check their school supply lists. 

The list of required items is different for each school and grade level, but teachers say the supplies needed are the bare necessities.

Students in elementary school will need the basics like wide ruled paper, No. 2 pencils, crayons, and folders.  Middle school students will need some extras like rulers, dry erase markers, and journal notebooks. High schools students to do not have formal school supply lists, so teens will find out what they need for their individual classes during the first week of class.

Area teachers say they're also making some last minute purchases.

"Every teacher is given a budget to start their classroom up or get supplies. With my budget, I pretty much had to stretch," said Anila Patel a fourth-grade teacher at Burgess Elementary.  "I love putting up my science and social studies boards and finding items in the Dollar Store that I can use to decorate my room."

"Since my kids work in groups, I have five of everything and I like them to be the same," Jennifer Crawford, a  second-grade teacher at Burgess Elementary, explained.  "Right now, I think I'm going to work with my class to decide on what our classroom theme is going to be. I don't like to do too much before I meet my kids."
