“When the community is engaged and invested in MNPS, the impact on our students can be powerful and profound. PENCIL knows this well, and they work hard to understand what the needs are at each school and how community partners can fill those gaps. Bringing a PENCIL Partner into a school can make a huge difference to students by showing them they’re loved, celebrated, and cared for both inside and outside the school’s four walls.”
