I have to admit, I am not happy that the 2016/2017 school year is approaching. I love having my kids home. However, school is necessary so I guess it's time to talk about school supplies.

Recently the two new elementary schools, Pillar Falls and Rock Creek Elementary, released their school supply lists. Yup, it's time to open your wallets! Speaking as the mother who is normally driving all over Twin Falls looking for the perfect markers, take a look at the school supply lists and start shopping.

Other area school supplies lists are located on the Twin Falls School Districts website. Please note that some of the lists haven't been update for the upcoming school year yet.

You will also want to note both new elementary schools will hold Grand Openings.  The Twin Falls School District will be hold Pillar Falls Elementary School's Grand Opening on August 9th from 4:00pm to 6:00pm. Rock Creek Elementary School's Grand Opening will be held on August 8th from 4:00pm to 6:00pm.
