  • Teacher Shopping Appointments

The DG PENCIL Box is a free teacher resource center for Metro Nashville Public School educators. MNPS teachers can “shop” for school supplies completely FREE of charge at the DG PENCIL Box. 

Teachers may schedule a shopping trip once per 9-week period. First quarter shopping includes any visit between July and the end of the first grading period. 

Online Scheduling 

When scheduling a shopping appointment, use your MNPS or school email to register if possible. Please try to arrive as close as you can to your appointment time for us to maintain social distancing. If you get stuck in traffic or have an emergency that makes you late, we still want you to come! Please come on your day.  

Shopping typically takes under 40 minutes. The store is operated by volunteers, so we ask that all teachers finish their shopping before closing time.
