I teach third grade in a low income New York City public school. We do many learning projects in my class that require cutting - an art that many children have trouble with. It may sound surprising, but year after year, children enter my class unable to cut paper properly with scissors. Sometimes this is due to poor motor skills, and sometimes it's just a lack of coordination. It would be nice to have a paper cutter in my class for those projects which require exact cutting and/or precise measurements. The paper cutter I am requesting is one of very high quality that will last many years, and more importantly, the safety features (especially the blade guard and lock) assure a safe and secure cutting tool that is appropriate for a classroom environment. Please rest assured that children will not have direct access to the paper cutter for safety reasons. It will be stored in a safe place that is out of reach, and will only be used by adults for the purpose of enhancing school projects that require cutting. Please consider my proposal. Your generosity will help hundreds of children for many years to come. Thank you.
