Electric Pencil Sharpeners Needed!

Help me give my students Electric Pencil Sharpeners. We have found that using electric ones is less time consuming and seems to be some kind of break from the routine for the students.

My Project

My students these year are a very particular group of kids. They are very well behaved and love to learn. For some reasons, they love to sharpen their pencils. My existing pencil sharpener broke a week and we do not have another one. Please help by supporting us to buy another 5 more. This will help my students to stay on task instead of worrying too much about their pencils being sharpened. Also, being ready to learn with all the supplies in place is a very important part of our daily procedures. Thank you for your support!
