Help Nashville teachers get the support they need by creating kits for PENCIL, or a similar agency. PENCIL connects resources to Nashville Public schools to ensure equitable learning across the board for all students to have a successful future. PENCIL works in line with Metro Nashville Public Schools (MNPS) and is guided by MNPS needs. PENCIL supports 168 schools and over 86,000 MNPS students spanning over a 500 square-mile boundary.  

Help create materials for teachers to use in the classroom. Projects could include:

  • Make flashcard kits of letters, numbers, shapes, and colors to help students thrive.
  • Put together individual journals for students to use in school
  • Nashville classrooms have Peace Corners, areas for students to go if they need to decompress or take some time for themselves. Assemble kits for students to take home and create their own peace corner. These kits would include things like stress balls, yoga cards, and other activities to help students handle the stress of school and home life.
  • Build teacher appreciation kits with notes of encouragement, tea bags, stress balls, yoga cards, etc.
