Staying Sharp in Corona

The cost of a Hunt High Volume Electric Pencil Sharpener for this proposal is $170, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

We teach in a collaborative team teaching classroom. In other words we have a combination of special education students along with general education students in the same room. Our primary goal is to foster a unique and productive learning environment. Our class is filled with every type of student. Some students are English Language Learners and some are Special Education but all of them are Writers. We are located in a poverty stricken area and would appreciate a new sharpener so we can keep writing! We write every day. Our pencils work best with a perfect point. We have gone through three sharpeners this year. We need a heave duty sharpener to "Stay Sharp!"
