Hooray! This project is fully funded

Someone once said, "It's a far better thing doing nice things for other people." My fourth grade classroom is a highly reading and writing intensive academic environment, which means we use thousands of pencils each school year as well as pencil top erasers and electronic pencil sharpeners. Right now, we are running out of pencils and erasers very quickly, and we're on our last electronic pencil sharpener. In addition, we're in the middle of some HUGE projects--memoirs, issue argument essays, publishing a children's book, and many other amazing life-changing reading and writing experiences. Plus, we need pencils for everyday academic school lessons in general. However, we are almost out of pencils and we're using our last electronic pencil sharpener. Donors of Donor's Choose have been so gracious in the past and have supplied our classroom with so many supplies. We are forever indebted to the many donors who have given so kindly to our educational experiences. Thank you! If funded, these pencils and sharpeners will allow us to continue working hard at our reading and writing projects, which will have a lasting impact on our education and our future, including education beyond high school. Thank you in advance to the donor who decides to make a difference in 23 of NYC's finest--the students of class 402 at P.S. 48, The Joseph Rodman Drake School in Hunts Point, an impoverished section of the South Bronx!
