Whether you’re enrolled in K-12, a college student or parent of either, there are items you will need to get the new year started right. We shopped for our school supply list back in August, but there are still more supplies we’ll need during this new season.
The school year is a fresh start, a new opportunity to do thing differently. To learn from the previous year’s mistakes. Our hope is to be organized so that we can all do our best this year – whatever our responsibilities are.
We love these clever new highlighters from Sharpie! Prioritize the homework list and remember those key notes by brightly highlighting only what’s most important.
