Back to School Must-Haves

Back to School Must-Haves

Back to school is just around the corner! While there is still much unknown to what this school year will bring, there is an element of excitement in the air as educators, students, and parents begin preparing for the first day of school. The new school year has a “new beginning” feeling; a fresh start, if you will. 

This time of year brings about many memories of us launching our kids on their first day of school over the years and for myself as an educator. The excitement as August inches closer; school supplies shopping trips; first day of school outfits; haircuts; double checking class lists; packing lunches; the bittersweet goodbye to summer with the added anticipation for the school year.

If you didn’t already know, we love our educators here at Grasshopper Goods ;) Not only do we offer a 10% forever discount for all teachers (available online or in shop), but we carry some incredible products with educators in mind. We want all teachers out there to feel seen, heard, and connected as soon as they walk into our shop or explore our website.

Soooo in true back to school fashion, we’ve compiled a list of Back to School Must-Haves you can find right in our shop in Stoughton or online.


Morning ritual to start your day - This one goes without saying ;) Whether you vibe with a caffeinated beverage or you prefer a yummy smoothie, having a morning ritual is so important to jump start your day. We carry the delicious Ledger Coffee (local to Madison) for all you coffee lovers out there. Our three delicious blends: the Colombia Light Roast, People's Champ Medium Roast, and the Ethiopia Single Origin Whole Coffee Beans. We also offer a Chai Powder, with or without caffeine, perfect for tea lovers.


Mug for your desk - Have a mug ready for an afternoon cup or to even hold your pens! We have the perfect mug for all you educators out there from Ruff House Prints that will inspire you every single day.


Little Notes of Love and Encouragement - We just added these cute, little lunchbox notes to the shop and we can't get enough of them! The perfect way to brighten someone's day, these scratch off notes allow you to write your own personal message to your loved one. You simply place one of the scratch off sticker on top of your note, and now the recipient can have fun scratching off the note of encouragement as they eat!

Backpack / Laptop Bag - An essential item for the school year! We know all you educators out there are carrying around tons of papers to grade, your laptop, snacks, and everything in between. We have a gorgeous selection of backpacks/laptop bags full of fun colors and patterns to brighten your day. The best part? They're waterproof! No more worrying about important papers or books getting wet.


Sweatshirt - Those classrooms get chilly! Especially as the temperature begins to drop as winter creeps up. Look adorable and cozy in an amazing selection of sweatshirts.

Keep that hair back - We have the most adorable hair clips if that’s your style and some gorgeous headbands from Headstand Accessories made by women in Janesville, WI. Headstand is a hair accessories company that stands for women's empowerment and providing employment opportunities for women in circumstances that make employment difficult.


Cute school supplies - Of course we have an amazing selection of school supplies you can’t find anywhere else! From silly pens, pencils, gorgeous notebooks, cute pencil cases, we’ve got you covered for some of your favorite supplies.


Calm Cards for Serenity - We adore The School of Life organization’s card decks! They have an amazing selection but for educators the Calm Cards are perfect for those moments when you need a moment of calm. Because we definitely get it. We’re only human!

We hope you had the best summer you could have! We wish all of our educators, students, and parents good luck as they embark on the 2022-2023 school year. REMEMBER, teachers forever receive 10% off at GG! Receive discount online or in the shop :)
