Yes, it’s only July, 6 weeks until school starts on Tuesday, August 13th in Greenwood.
However, it’s not too early to start shopping. Some households are budgeting their shopping. It is estimated that it will cost at least $45 to buy required school supplies and backpack for each child and that is not including clothing and shoes.
Of course, now may also be the time to start reintroducing earlier bedtimes as well as freshening up the learning since the children and teens have had an enjoyable break.
The Greenwood schools have been pro-active in providing the supplies needed for each grade. Of course, it is always good to have extra on hand. This contributor has personally witnessed kids breaking pencils, chewing on them, breaking crayons, doodling in notebooks … so yes, extras are necessary.
Sales are already going on at the office supply stores, but the biggie for parents will be the tax-free weekend starting Friday, August 3, 2019 and ending at 11:59pm Saturday, August 4, 2019.
View the lists and get the supplies ready.
