I also finished off a modest request from a quasi-local elementary school for pencils and an electric pencil sharpener. Freaking pencils. Okay, so the teacher splurged and put some colored pencils on the shopping list, but still. Half the projects on Donorschoose seem to be for digital projectors and iPads, while then there are teachers trying to get paper and pencils.
"Also, Dude, colored pencils is not the preferred nomenclature. African American pencils, please."
