Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am teaching a pre-geometry class to a group of advanced students at my high school. We are a Title 1 school with 99% of all students receiving free lunch and they have little money to buy their own supplies. My class will be focused on hand-on constructions and projects that will require the use of rulers and compasses almost every day. I am hoping to receive a class set of rulers and compasses that do not break and can be used by the students for years to come. Please help my class advance their skills by purchasing these for them. Thank you for your consideration.
