Teacher Shopping



The LP PENCIL Box staff is excited to serve Metro Nashville Public School teachers and their students. Our store is stocked with school supplies donated from businesses and individuals throughout the Nashville community. We are located at 1300 56th Avenue North on the first floor of Nashville College Prep building. DRIVING DIRECTIONS

All Metro teachers are invited to shop twice per school year; once in the fall semester and again in the spring.  Appointments are required and 
can be made by clicking the BOOK NOW button at the top of the page once shopping days are finalized. You will receive a confirmation upon making an appointment. Helpful hints for scheduling an appointment:
  • If you cannot click on a day or time, that means there are no appointments available for that day. You will have to select another day and time.
  • In the "Business Name" field, please enter your school name.
  • Your telephone number MUST include the area code.
  • Please provide two contact phone numbers and ensure that your contact information is current.
*If Metro Schools close due to inclement weather, LP PENCIL Box will be closed. You will be contacted by staff person to reschedule your appointment.

  • Please bring your own shopping bags.
  • Please do not bring guests. We have limited space and several teachers shopping at once. If you have children with you, we will ask that they are seated in the waiting area.
  • Be on time. If you need to reschedule your appointment please do so online.
  • Please be ready to check out when the store closes. We rely on volunteers to assist during shopping hours so please be respectful of their time.
  • Upon checkout, each teacher will be given a homework assignment - to send a thank you note to a donor. Please help us in our efforts to recognize our generous donors!

Don't forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to share your "shopping" experiences! Share pictures of the items you picked up. 

Thank you for all you do for students!
