The Point of a Pencil

My students need 100 pencils and 25 hand held pencil sharpeners.

My Students

Point the way! Everyone loves to have a pencil with a sharp point. We use pencils for our daily work. Needless to say, the quantity of pencils used over the course of a school year is rather large.

My students are industrious and eager to learn.

In order to accomplish this and reach their goals, they need proper supplies. We always need pencils. Students, unfortunately, do not always come to school withal the necessary supplies. This is not due to any fault of their own. They want to do their work. They want to succeed. They need support in order to do this.

My Project

A substantial amount of pencils will provide my students with the necessary tools for their daily endeavors. Not having the proper tools, or not enough of them, can really slow down the learning process. Since we use pencils for all of our work, we need to have a sufficient amount at our fingertips (both literally, and figuratively). Hand held pencil sharpeners will allow my students to maintain a sharp point on their pencils so that their work will always be neat and legible. These sharpeners are silent, so they will not disturb the other students as they work.

Please consider funding this project.

It isn't a flashy project, but one that supports "flash". These pencils will be part of the creation of exquisite writing pieces, monumental math discoveries, and a myriad of other accomplishments. Thank you for your support. It is greatly appreciated.
