My Students

My students are beautiful and brilliant. Our class consists of multi-level learners. Our school is a high-poverty, Title I school, meaning that 100% of our students receive free or reduced-priced lunch. A fraction of my students are homeless, and many of my other students have houses or apartments that they share with one or more families. Some of my students do not have a bed to sleep on. I've noticed that they are hungry in the mornings and midday. We are an extended day school where the kids stay until 4:05.

Our school is located in a high-poverty neighborhood.

My students work very hard every day. Our class has a 98% attendance rate, which means the students rarely miss school. We value our learning time.

My students come from multi-ethnic backgrounds, each with distinctive cultural traditions. In our classroom, we blend our traditions to form strong community ties.

My Project

We are seeking a laminator as well as laminating rolls to make station work easier in the classroom. I would like to use the laminator to help make our math money more sturdy and help us reduce on waste by having to make new ones every time. We would also like to us the laminator to protect our choice menu projects. Much of the work we do gets hung up in the classroom or in the hallway and it sometimes gets damaged, so we would like to use the laminator to help protect our work from being damaged while on display.

We would like to conserve and preserve the things we are working on and a laminator would make that much easier to do.

We hope you consider giving to our project and we appreciate you taking the time to look into the project.
