My eldest daughter is going to pre-school and we’re all excited! After informally homeschooling her the past years, and going to Gymboree‘s Learning Lab classes on weekends, we decided that she is ready to go to a regular school. Mia will attend Parkwood Playschool (after researching and scouting for schools around our area) this coming June and we are eagerly preparing for it. When we enrolled a few months ago, the school’s admin person gave us a list of materials that we need to submit before school starts. Here what’s the list looked like:
So after our quick weekend trip to Liliw, we headed to our favorite mall, Power Plant in Rockwell and shopped for Mia’s school supplies. I got giddy upon entering National Bookstore, I can stay there for hours! There were a lot of variants and brands to choose from, and choosing even just a pencil sharpener took me a while. We ended up with 4 bags full of supplies and Michael had to literally drag me to the cashier to stop my shopping frenzy.
Last Monday, I labeled, unwrapped, wrapped with plastic laminate those that I can, and packed Mia’s things so we can bring it to school on our first-ever PTA.
Here are some of my favorite buys and those that I found very useful. Please excuse my ignorance and excitement on these little items – it’s been a while since I got to buy school items :)…
