FAIRFIELD — Priscilla Sena-Cavalli starts her back-to-school shopping for her two children in August before school begins and ends when the school year is over.
Her son Steven Cavalli is entering the fifth grade at Laurel Creek Elementary and her daughter, Marie Cavalli, is entering the sixth grade at K.I. Jones Elementary.
Sena-Cavalli rushes to stores like Target and Walmart for all the school essentials like binders, pencils, paper and folders.
She said she doesn’t mind picking up the occasional Kleenex box to donate to her children’s classrooms. The teachers, she said, already donate so much.
