It would be great if they had:

 

A red pen, a high lighter, and map colors everyday.

 

Parents, I am not asking for hand sanitizer, or Kleenex, or glue sticks for the class to use.  I am a parent and I know how expensive all this can be at the start of the year.

IF you want to sent those kinds of things at anytime of the year, I will be grateful but you don’t have too. 

 

We are starting a Theater program at the Jr. High and we have very limited supplies and no budget.  At various times I will be asking for props and costume help. 

 

If you have the item or type clothing we are looking for and you would like to DONATE it to us ( I say donate because we might break it of destroy it, so we don’t want to borrow anything unless we have too ) we would be glad to have it. 

 

Also for parents of students in Theater : I DON’T SEW.   I may have to ask you to hem a skirt or pants.  

 

 

Parents,  I will do everything I can to treat your child with respect and to help them be successful in this class and help prepare them for the future.
