ATLANTA, Aug. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Back-to-school is always a hectic time for parents and families, but having an easily accessible list of items students need and teachers want helps make shopping less stressful.  Dixie® is pleased to be the exclusive paper cup sponsor of TeacherLists.com – the largest and fastest-growing free online service for posting and sharing school supply lists and teacher wish lists with parents.

The TeacherLists.com concept is simple:  teachers and schools can use the service to easily post and share their school supply lists online.  With just a click or two, parents can find the lists they need from any computer, tablet or smart phone, or print the lists before heading to the store. 

"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."

While Dixie® cups are great for students' drinks, arts and crafts, and other activities, they are also a simple way to help prevent the spread of germs in the classroom. While everyone thinks of pencils, pens and notebooks as school supply staples, paper cups, facial tissues and hand wipes have also become essentials for healthy classrooms.

"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 the largest database available of current school supply and teacher wish lists from more than 300,000 classrooms and more than 20,000 schools in all 50 states. The site eases every parent's annual chore of finding lists and getting the supplies their children need.
