Parents will soon be able to breath a sigh of relief when they send their children back to school. But before that first day of school starts, parents have to go through the fuss of back-to-school shopping.

To make it easier for parents, local schools have used a new tool to help spread class item lists for parents on www.teacherlists.com, according to a press release from the website.

“With just two clicks, parents can find their child’s exact supply list and then click right over to pre-filled shopping carts on Target, Walmart, Office Depot, Amazon or Staples to purchase their list and have it shipped right to their home,” the press release states. “Target, Walmart, Office Depot and Staples also offer in store pick-up. Super easy, super convenient.”

The site already includes lists for;

•Benson Hill Elementary, Renton

•Carriage Crest Elementary, Renton

•Cascade Elementary, Renton

•Fairwood Elementary, Renton

•Highlands Elementary, Renton

•Honey Dew/ Home School, Renton

•Kennydale Elementary, Renton

•McKnight Middle School, Renton

•Nelsen Middle School, Renton

•Renton Park Elementary, Renton

•Ridgewood Elementary, Renton

•Sartori Elementary, Renton

•Talbot Elementary, Renton

•Tiffany Park Elementary, Renton

“For decades, the supply list process has been a frustration for parents,” TeacherLists CEO Charles Field states in the press release. “Where to find the lists? When are they available? Forgetting the list on the counter at home. Hunting the aisles for the specific items their teacher has requested. All of those issues are solved with TeacherLists.”
