IUPUC’s Staff Council is helping local teachers and students with a donation of pencils to area classrooms. The “Staying Sharp Pencil Campaign” donated 300 boxes, or 3,600 pre-sharpened pencils on Friday..
Jayne Morris, IUPUC Staff Council Community Outreach chair, said they know teachers are running low on school supplies this time of year. And the majority of educators spend their own money on classroom supplies. She said the council is “hoping to ease that burden just a little.”
Each BCSC elementary classroom will receive a box of 12 pencils and a Crimson Pride flag representing IUPUC athletic teams. .
Morris delivered the pencils to the Bartholomew Consolidated School Foundation, which will distribute them throughout the school district.
