LP PENCIL Box is free teacher resource center for Metro Nashville Public School educators. Teachers may schedule shopping trips once a 9-week period. First quarter shopping will be any shop between July and the end of the grading period. 

During COVID, we have reduced the number of shoppers in the store by doubling the time between appointments, but we have extended hours to hopefully see as many teachers as possible.

  • Teacher Shopping Appointments
    Each MNPS teacher/administrator is allowed to shop once every nine week period. 
    Please try to arrive as close as possible to your time. 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. 
    We are run by volunteers, and ask that all teachers finish their shops by 5:30 PM on Tuesdays, 6 PM on Thursdays, and 3 PM on Saturdays.

    Please use your MNPS or school email to register if possible. 

    Shopping generally takes under 40 minutes.

    We are open at full capacity for the fall 2021 schedule, which usually means up to 10 teachers in the store at the same time. It is pretty easy to socially distance in our space. There will be no mask mandate in our facility, but we encourage you to wear one if you have not been vaccinated or if you feel more comfortable wearing one.

    We hope to see you soon!
