Scissors Needed!

My students need 36 pair of functioning scissors!

I am first year teacher teaching a diverse group of 25 Kindergarteners from a high need community.

I was hired five days before the school year started. By the time I placed my order for classroom materials, there were no scissors left.

My students are currently using left-over rusty scissors that don't open, borrowed from other teachers. They leave marks on their fingers and some won't even cut through construction paper.

My students struggle on a daily basis with the scissors that they are currently using. New scissors would mean the world to my students!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
