September is right around the corner, and that means it’s back to school time.

Supply needs can differ based on the education level, but there’s still basics that every teacher should have when the school year begins: writing utensils, tape, stapler/staples, dry-erase markers or chalk, post-it notes, and a lesson planner. If you want to think ahead, buying in bulk could save money in the long-run or even be needed for those ever-forgetful students.

When getting creative for room or office decoration, keep in mind that it should also be usable. Desk organizers and file cabinets will help keep track of important papers so losing work won’t ever have to be a worry. To keep both the teachers and students informed, a large wall calendar can help remind of any important test/quiz days. An extra eraser board could also be used for motivational phrases or date reminders.

For the administration offices, their supply list will be more like typical office necessities. It’s best to always be stocked with printer paper and ink, pens, folders, and planners. There’s a lot of daily activities at school, so being prepared with bulk orders will really ensure proper management. Just like the teachers, keeping organized with file cabinets will really show how the administrative staff takes their education seriously.
