About $20 for class and $100 for shoes/clothing so far. Our schools provide all necessary supplies and books for public education so parents don't (and really can't) send school supplies--they ask nicely to donate to class as a whole so it's uniform. Teachers can put out a list of "voluntary donations" and we can help out with those. I have sent kleenex tissue, hand sanitizer, packets of pencils and boxes of crayons.
DH (a teacher) spent $56 so far on his classroom (he gets reimbursed) and that was mainly notebooks, pencils, pens. He had a parent donate 40 folders so he didn't have to buy many of those. He will see what he needs at the end of this week adn what supplies have been donated and then do another trip to the store (WalMart has best prices in his comparison). He has $250 to spend (as do all teachers in the public school district). I know he needs dry-erase markers and kleenex. He needs much less than elementary teachers--no glue, crayons, markers.
My middle DS and youngest needed new shoes. Oldest DS needed new soccer gear. But outside of that, no clothing really.
