Parent Gets Daughter Personalized School Supplies So Teacher Doesn’t ‘Redistribute’ Them To Rest Of Class

Going to school and meeting new individuals makes kids both delighted and frightened. Each year, the summer seems to fly by and we find ourselves headed back to school. It’s time to cross items off your back-to-school shopping list, pick out a fresh first-day wardrobe, and take on the new school year. Normally parents label their kids stationeries in school. However in this story when a parent did that it didn’t go down well with the teacher. Read the story why and what would you do in this scenario.

My little girl, Mia (F9) has started a new school recently. We moved and she had to start a new school. I got a list of supplies that the teacher required plus extras like extra packs of crayons, etc. You know the deal. While I don’t necessarily agree with this, it’s not a hill I, willing to die on so I got everything on that list. However, I also got my child her own supplies.

Now, the list didn’t say to not label them. Mia is very particular on what type of stationery she likes. I’ve heard horror stories of kids’ stuff being redistributed and then ending up with crappy supplies so I sat down with Mia and we got her personalised binders and notebooks and pencils with her name on etsy. It’s all part of the item so can’t be removed and given to another kid (like I said, as requested, I bought extra binders, etc.).

It turns out that I was right to do so. When Mia got home, she brought a passive aggressive note from the teacher about Mia’s supplies. Apparently, she tried to gather all supplies and have kids pick another one.

She requested that I switch Mia’s supplies to generic ones which I’m refusing to do.

The teacher now requested that I stop by to have a chat regarding Mia’s supplies.

I posted in a local fb group and parents are divided so I need another opinion before I go meet with Mia’s teacher. Am I the a**hole for buying my child personalized stationery so it cannot be taken away from her?
