With schools providing less and less money for basic classroom supplies, it's only fitting that teachers dish out their own money to get things done. (Of course!)
That's when donations come into play. I have used these little wish tickets for the last 4 years, and they've provided many happy returns.
I set these out on the tables at Back to School Night for parents to take if they's like to donate. There are inexpensive items like facial tissues and paper towels (available at Dollar Stores) and expensive items like pens and wipe-offs, so parents of all income levels can contribute.
I've also included a student name so parents can be acknowledged and thanked appropriately.
