The Mike & Carla Morning Show

Weekdays 5:00am - 10:00am

Here is Clark County, we are four days into the 2022-23 school year and hopefully you were able to afford all the school supplies your kid really needs for school. However, for those waiting to start school, our friends at SNWS put out an article with a list of some of the things kids today need for school. Now, don’t get too freaked out by the list since some things haven’t changed over the years, but there are a couple of items that pop out at you…and the fact that the younger kids need these as well.

Remember when all you needed was a couple of #2 pencils, paper, a few folders? Oh, and the book covers we made at home out of paper bags from the grocery store…well those days are over! Starting in kindergarten, the following are listed as supplies the little ones need for school:

Writing utensils
Glue sticks
School glue
Tissues (more so for the teacher)
Colored pencils
Safety scissors

Then you wonder why the back pack you kid carries to school weighs more than the kid…and that’s just for those kids 5-6 years of age!

The article features results from a poll of about 1,000 parents who were surveyed and found the top must-have back-to-school supplies include….and keep in mind that these are now considered “basic” items by today’s standards. Times are tough as it is, having to by back to school clothes, including shoes, socks…lunch boxes (do they still use those any more?).

Keep in mind, you probably have already shopped and taken care of all these back to school needs, but if not, feel free to share this list with your family and friend! Scroll down to see the Top 5 items on the list of back to school items needed.

All that and much more in Mike & Carla’s segment of “A Few Things We Think You Should Know” this morning!
