Average tshirt sizes for elementary-aged kids

Looking for a chart or opinions on good average sizes to best suit a random sampling of elementary school kids.

I need to provide t-shirts for a few kids in each grade, grades K-5, without knowing whom I'm buying it for ahead of time. Previous years have convinced me that I have absolutely no standard to go by, since with my own skinny kids as references I have bought too many dinky shirts. Ideally, what I'd base my order on would allot two sizes for each grade and I could total it up from there.
So as an example, it's obvious to me that a youth S is a safe bet for average kindergarteners, and I would also order M as the next size up. But my experience breaks down for any ages/grades after that.
This is the size chart for the brand I ordered last year: http://www.jerzees.com/29BR.shtml
