My Students

My students want to sharpen their skills and tools necessary to learn!

My students have a strong desire to learn all that they can.

They come to school each day prepared to work hard and get 110%! They are part of a community that supports and values education, but is not funded in a way that can provide the tools and experiences that they need and want.

My Project

The electric pencil sharpeners I am requesting on behalf of my students will be used every day. They are essential to the students so they can have the necessary tools to show their current knowledge and new learning. Nothing is more frustrating than having a road block in their way that impedes their learning journey!

Donations to this project will enable my students to sharpen their pencils to have the supplies needed to engage each day in their education.

My students will be able to walk into the classroom to freshly sharpened pencils ready to tackle the task at hand.
