My students need pens and project folders for writing class.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My writing class is filled with students ready and eager to learn how to better their writing skills. However, the confidence my students have as writers is low right now, and by the end of the year I want them to feel like accomplished and proud writers.
My students are hard workers because they know that they are behind.
Coming from very low-income areas, my students are aware that they need to work hard to achieve their dreams which is why they are so eager to learn. The school they are in is passionate about creating a safe environment for learning where students are cared for, as well as given high standards for learning.
Students are expected to be writing every day in class in their writing notebooks. Oftentimes, students don't have a writing utensil and have to ask for one either from me or from their peers. Several times, students have complained about the poor quality of the pens they are given and it seems to discourage them from writing.
The project folders will be used when students are submitting the final drafts of their writing. Every unit comes to a close with students submitting typed or handwritten papers. This will work to give students the feeling of having a piece polished and published, as well as make it easier for me to organize their final drafts.
The donations will improve my classroom immensely because I think it will help my students feel a bigger sense of pride about their work.
A final draft will feel so much more important if it's written with a beautiful pen and put into a project folder that is easy to show off--for the students, it will feel official! I want my students to feel accomplished about all of their hard work, and the donations will definitely help with that.
