Dixie supports the largest and fastest growing free online service for posting and sharing school supply and teacher wish lists.

Atlanta, GA (August 18, 2013) – Back-to-school is always a hectic time for parents and families, but having a list of items students need and teachers want helps make shopping less stressful. Dixie is pleased to announce its partnership with TeacherLists.com – the largest and fastest-growing free online service for posting and sharing school supply lists and teacher wish lists with parents –in an effort to make back-to-school preparation easier.

School supply lists have been a staple of the back-to-school experience for millions of families for decades. And while everyone thinks of pencils and pens and notebooks as school supply staples, today the fact is that classroom basics such as paper cups, facial tissues and hand wipes have also become school supply essentials as schools strive to ensure classrooms are a healthy place for children.

Dixie is now the exclusive paper cup sponsor of TeacherLists.com. While obviously great for students’ drinks, Dixie® cups are also perfect for arts and crafts and all kinds of classroom activities. In addition, Dixie® disposable cups are a simple way to help prevent the spread of germs in the classroom.

“We are very excited about adding Dixie® cups to our TeacherLists.com family,” says TeacherLists.com founder Tim Sullivan. “These are exactly the kinds of products that – while seldom part of the official school budget – help great teachers do great work. Whether they are being used for fun counting games or as containers for painting, Dixie® cups are a staple on the classroom supply list.”

The TeacherLists.com concept is simple: teachers and schools can use the service to easily post and share their school supply lists and teacher wish lists online. And parents – with just a click or two – can find exactly the lists they need from any computer, tablet or smart phone. Parents can print the lists or view them easily on a mobile device right in the store.

“Dixie® is a brand that parents and teachers have relied on for decades,” says Neil Grossman, Dixie® Cups brand manager. “Dixie® disposable cups promote the importance of germ prevention and health which has long offered parents peace of mind. These qualities are important to teachers as well, so Dixie® cups are naturally at home in the classroom, too.”

Launched in 2012, TeacherLists.com already boasts – by far – the largest database available of current school supply lists and teacher wish lists, with lists from more than 300,000 classrooms and more than 20,000 schools (from all 50 states) live on the site. The site is taking an annual chore for every parent – finding those lists and getting the supplies their children need – and making it easier for all.
