Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful and love to learn! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think creatively! They come to school each day ready to try new STEM activities and practice their leadership skills.

Our school is located in a rural area.

Many of their families often struggle to find employment and opportunity. They often struggle to provide the basic needs for their children. Many of our children come to school without school supplies.

My Project

My students have been working hard all year and our pencil sharpener is no longer working. We are in need of two new heavy duty pencil sharpeners to keep up with our busy classroom. This pencil sharpener is equipped to handle a classroom environment that will make students and teacher less stressed. With the upcoming state testing approaching quickly, we are also in need of pencils. Our stock is getting low. We do a lot of writing and other STEM activities. Help me sharpen my students' pencils with a great addition to our classroom. Any donation would be greatly appreciated.
