Increasing costs for school supplies often strain family budgets. According to a 2014 report by the National Retail Federation, parents can expect to pay an average of $101.18 per child on school supply costs. Nicole Mitchem, Principal at Fallon Park Elementary acknowledges that these items are critical to prepare children for the school year and are often a financial burden on families.
