back to school night

Do you ever get ready for the year and realize you could use a few more things?
Or at least have a few extras on hand?

A wish list.

I make a sign every year that makes it easy for parents to see what the art room could still use.
Then I display it at back to school night.
Parents can simply grab a post-it and go.
No need to write down a reminder.

I usually get a few things back too.
Last year I showed up to school one morning and had a huge box of brand new colored sharpies waiting for me.
Be still my heart!


  1. This is absolutely brilliant! I think all teachers should be as awesome.
    I'm impressed!

  2. That is the best idea ever! And timely--our open house is this week!
