Let the back-to-school shopping begin!
Wow, everything from erasers to three colors of ink pens, from scissors to notebooks are on the list. Don’t forget a box of Kleenex for the classroom and an apple for the teacher.
If you’ve purchased a new backpack for your student and added in the supplies, your receipts probably add up to well more than $100. And you still have to get new shoes and pay for a yearbook and a PTA membership.

Teenagers are generally a competitive bunch, and Skyline High School tried to take advantage of that during its Winter Wonder Week fundraising campaign.
From Dec. 9-13, the school’s Associated Student Body leaders organized a series of fundraising activities to benefit the Ben Towne Foundation, a local organization that supports pediatric cancer research at Seattle Children’s Research Institute.
The ASB brought in donations through: an acoustic music night; a “Buff Puff” volleyball tournament that featured a match between the Skyline varsity squad and staff members; and a “Pack the Rack” basketball doubleheader against rival Issaquah, where students were encouraged to wear blue shirts in support of cancer research.
