Help me give my students a multi-size electric pencil sharpener with pencil grips to help them express their ideas in writing.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Most, if not all, of my students, have been born into families of poverty. All of my students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. We are a Title I school with a high volume of English Language Learners at varying stages of language development. Low socio-economic status challenges make for limited childhood life experiences. The parental support is limited since many parents find themselves working multiple jobs just to make ends meet.
My students need a multi-size pencil sharpener for our classroom.
The classroom is highly motivated and eager to learn. We need sharp pencils to express our ideas in writing. Getting our thoughts on paper quickly is very important. Our tasks are many, and we are always in need of a pencil sharpener. Our sharpener is broken, and we are using hand-help individual sharpeners that break so easily.
Our first graders are in need of a working electric pencil sharpener. When it is time to write it down, we need to be able to write it fast. When students are composing their thoughts they need to be ready to write.
Stopping to sharpen a pencil can interrupt the students' thought process.
Precious seconds are important when coming up with thoughts that flow. Thoughts need to be captured quickly before they lose track of what they were thinking. A sharp pencil at hand is the most important supply I can provide my students. Pencil grips will give students better control of their writing. Grips will also help us by quickly knowing which pencil belongs to which writer.
