School supply kit contents vary by grade level and school, but some common items found in them are pencils, spiral-bound notebooks, folders, crayons, markers, rulers, erasers and highlighters. These kits are designed to allow parents to get most of their children's necessary school supplies in one package, saving them time shopping for supplies.
School supply kits are often available for purchase through websites like The Write Stuff, and individual schools have information on where parents can purchase the kits with the supplies necessary for their children's grade levels, notes SisuluWalker.com. In addition to the standard contents in these kits, there is sometimes the option to customize the kit with additional items. Depending on the school, these kits may be mailed to students' homes or given to them in person when class starts.
Some examples of additional items that may be found in kits for elementary school students include dry erase markers, Post-It notes, a supply box, loose-leaf paper, scissors, dividers for binders, index cards, pens in a variety of colors and colored pencils. High school students' supply kits may not include supply boxes and crayons like elementary school supply lists mention. Other necessary items, such as backpacks, calculators, lunch boxes, tissues, books (such as dictionaries), flash drives and hand sanitizer may have to be purchased separately.
