Hi Everyone! I teach at at a public school in San Francisco with an Arts Based Curriculum. We just received a nice donation of paper, all in very large sheets. To make good use of this wonderful resource and to upgrade the way that our Art Room functions year round with any size of paper we could really make good use of a large size paper cutter. This tool would be used by all of our staff and students, as we share this kind of resource. Your donation would benefit hundreds of children for many years. It would positively benefit our whole school program as we would have an easy, efficient want to cut special and beautiful papers for a wide range of products, going outside the usual copier paper that's 8.5x11". Right now its just too time consuming to use the paper supply we've just received as-is. As a school with the Arts at the Center of the curriculum, aesthetics are very important and children deserve our best. I ask for your support in buying a quality paper cutter which will add an essential tool to our school's bag of tricks. Forty five percent of our students are eligible for the federal free lunch program, we are an under resourced urband school without many essential educational tools. If I were to buy a paper cutter out of my classroom funds for this school year, I would be overspending my annual budget by several hundred dollars. Thanks!
