Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a very hands-on sixth grade academic English teacher. My classroom needs a class set (35) scissors for student use. I have heavier adult/ "teacher" scissors to cut felt,etc. that we share as needed, but we do not have many student scissors for paper cutting, brown bag book report making, etc. If I received a class set (35) scissors, all three of my classes would be able to use them. A class set of student scissors would allow each child to create at the same time. Thus, no down time to slow down creativity, all children would be actively engaged.
