I wouldn't be too concerned about what is 'cool" and so forth, just take her along with you and let her choose what she thinks is 'cool". The definition of what is trendy varies from kid to kid, going by their individual tastes. She has ideas on what she likes I'm sure, so it's a good chance to let her make the decisions.
I still had lunch boxes in high school, replaced the kiddy ones though, lol, with more "mature" styles. At least lunch boxes are insulated, much safer in the heat.
Lots of luck to Casey for this year! I hope she settles in well.

Find a web forum on this type of business and become a member and learn learn learn! Also have a vision for yourself so you really know where u want to go/be. The have a plan to achieve it and if it's still hats business do it, take action! Remember it is us to dream and fun where most people fail is in taking action or having a plan
paper bags :)or money because in some schools you can go out to lunch or if the hot lunch is good at the school you can just buy lunch there.but dont buy a plastic lunch box or any of those type things.
for a backpack a tote is cool..kinda like a purse so she can put in a bunch of things like binder books pencils hair stuff makeup whatever..if you dont know what a tote is i'll put a link so you can see:) ..backpacks are ok..but messenger bags are better..most people just stick with totes though because they have cute patterns and its easy to bring with you to class..you dont even need to use your locker just bring everything in the tote...
and for places to shop i'd say
dont go to jcpenny or
walmart for clothes..she will be made fun of..school supplys like pencils are fine though...
um target is ok for clothes..not really name brand but still cute.
if she has any friends than they should go shopping together to see what her friends are getting that way you'll kinda have an idea of whats "cool"

do you know a shop called primark? they have quite a few fashionable big shoulder bags that carry quite a lot of stuff. in highschool you go to the canteen or go down to the shops if the school allow that. if they have a non school uniform she should wear any shoes she wants , but if she has to wear black shoes then get her black trainers or black pumps. Also in the uk we have a shop called jane norman they do a few nice bags. also if your daughter has to wear a tie i would reccomend not making her put it right up to her neck cause that is very uncool!!
Iam in highschool so i know what it is like!
Hope this helps

Medication is a real delima. First, you have confiditiality issues. How do you know he is on meds? Second issue is that the school does not want any employee saying a child needs.... because the law often then forces the school to pay.
Sounds like you have plenty of doccumentation at least orally. Make it a point to write down all your observations in a non-judgemental way. Get any other adult who may work with this child to do so also.
Then you have "data" which is the buzz word for today's educator. http://www.interventioncentral.org/ is a good site to help you with forms and data collection. This site also has lots of tips and articals to help you with dealing with the behaviors.
A last thought. If the lack of meds is doccumented by data, it is possible it is a "child abuse" situation. An adult who knowingly denies a child the necessary medicines to make them successful is abuse by neglect.
Here in Texas, we are dealing with the exact same problems...(are you in Texas?)...
One more thought... when a child's behavior begins to take away from the education of the others, it is time to act. The other children have a right to an education that is not weakened by the actions of one child.
I myself am a "Behavior Specialist" in my district, and I work with children like the one you describe. They are good kids... it is not his fault he does not have the ability to settle down, but on the other hand, he MUST learn to adapt.
Spend some time looking on the web for help with your own sphere of influence, which is how you set up your room to survive until the school decides to back you and help with this situation. The web site I mentioned is not to judge you or your methods and your attitudes. It will however perhaps give you some more tools in our arsenal to help.
As a last resort... are you a member of a teacher orginazation? They can sometimes help with your administration giving you the support and backing to work with one of these children. In my district, so often, we are left to our own resources until something bad happens or we force the administration to help with children like these. NCLB almost is a mandate for the admin. to minimise reporting problems etc. So if they leave the burden solely on you, there are no reports to file on a child's behaviors!
