Sharp and to the Point

My students need basic classroom supplies. We need a functional pencil sharpener in the room, along with working staplers, tape, and poster board to complete projects.

My Students

My English classes strive to create beautiful final copies of all of our writing and produce engaging presentations. Our challenge is a lack of classroom supplies and funds for the supplies.

Our school is in a rural environment with a graduating class of 30 or less.

The students are very creative and enthusiastic about learning. As a district we work well with what we have and the teachers and community often pitch in for basic supplies. By the middle of the school year many of the necessary supplies have dwindled without funds to replace the needed supplies.

My Project

Our students need basic supplies for classroom work and poster board for presentations. We avidly work on presentations and final presentations of our work. With these needed supplies students will be able to continue working on hands-on projects in class.

Donations to this project will make everyday classroom work easier.

Students are currently having to run to other classrooms to sharpen pencils or use hand sharpeners which are leaving shavings everywhere. We are also currently 100% out of tape and poster board in the room. In addition, we are left with one functioning stapler, which has to be unjammed daily.
