My students are eager to learn and come to school everyday with bright, shining faces. Despite facing numerous challenges in and out of the classroom, they are motivated to work to their full potential. Most of my students are low income or poverty, and do not show up with proper material. Having basic supplies, like something to write with, is a challenge. Once my students are supplied with a writing utensil, they are fully equipped to work to their best of their abilities.
The pre-sharpened pencils I am requesting will be used daily. My students quality for special education services, and face daily challenges. I would like to eliminate the stress of having to remember the basics: bringing a pencil to class. These pencils will be easily accessible, no questions asked. I want to give my students an opportunity to feel successful as soon as they walk into my classroom. Pencils make a big difference since it’s a supply that is used to teach math skills, reading comprehension skills, and writing skills. My students and I will be grateful for your generous donations. Thanks!
