I have full confidence in your good judgement and sympathetic personality. I wouldn't even dare to make such a request hadn't I anticipated a recipient with deep understanding and a tolerating character. These thoughts by the way remain unchanged regardless of the outcome. My request bares a personal aspect but nonetheless can be justified by business means in a longer run.
A proposal to purchase new pencil sharpeners for the classrooms of St. Mary's School Purpose I write this letter to propose a solution to a recurring problem at St. The problem is that the pencil sharpeners in the classrooms are very old and do not work effectively anymore.
Students and teachers continually become frustrated because it is difficult to sharpen a pencil with the current sharpeners, and pencils that are sharp are crucial for effective learning.
I suggest that we order new pencil sharpeners for each classroom so that the students will have pencils that work well and will therefore be able to write without the frustration of worn down pencil points.
Commentary On the Purpose: Because the audience is the pastor of a church that has a grade school, and because the pastor is not using the classrooms in the school every day, he may not know how bad the pencil sharpeners are.
Thus, the problem is stated clearly at the beginning in the purpose section of the proposal Problem of Ineffective Pencil Sharpeners There are students enrolled in kindergarten through eighth grade at St.
These students occupy 12 classrooms each day. None of these classrooms has a pencil sharpener that works well; it takes several minutes to sharpen just one pencil. This means that if all of the students need to sharpen their pencils once a day depending on how much writing is being done, a pencil may need sharpened more than once a dayit could take an average of thirty minutes to sharpen them all before the students can sit down to their desks and start learning the day's lessons.
Thirty minutes of time spent sharpening pencils takes away a great deal from instructional time. However, not all the students need to sharpen their pencils at the same time.
This need arises at various times throughout the day, often at the beginning of a test or a new lesson. Because of the length of time it takes to sharpen a pencil, the teachers have continuous interruptions in their lessons throughout the day.
Almost everything done in a classroom requires a pencil, especially as students get older, and it is difficult to get anything done without this basic tool. The current pencil sharpeners have been in the classrooms as long as Mrs.
Morris has taught here, and that is over thirty years. They do not work well because they have been in use for so long. Even after sharpening for several minutes, the pencil points still are not as sharp as they should be, and the points break off easily, causing them to need to be sharpened yet again.
Commentary on the description of the problem: In this section, the proposal gives more details and background information about the kinds of problems caused by not having effective pencil sharpeners in hopes that the pastor will realize the degree to which the poor sharpeners detract from student learning.
Solution to the Problem I propose that we purchase electric pencil sharpeners for each classroom.Example of a letter asking for a pay raise, advice on what to include in a letter asking for more money, and tips for writing and sending or emailing.
