My Students

We are a charter school serving the Riverview and Brandon area of Florida. We have over 1,000 students who learn and thrive! We take pride in learning and all students learn Spanish daily and learn in a STEM environment!

My Project

Many of our bulletin boards and wall hangings are faded by sunlight and get torn or damaged by students passing by.

The laminator will be used by teachers and staff to preserve materials used to create attractive and engaging bulletin boards, classroom materials, and wall hangings throughout the building.

Our students need a bright, cheerful environment at school to help motivate and engage them in the educational environment.

Having a laminator in the building will help me grow as a professional because I will be able to create long-lasting educational and interactive bulletin boards and materials for instruction. The ability to preserve these materials through the use of a laminator will save me time and allow me to create more materials for instruction and display.

Students will benefit from these educational and informational resources being on display throughout the classrooms and building. The information will not get torn or damaged because it will be protected with a plastic coating.

With your help, a laminator will help us create a bright and cheerful environment for our students to enjoy each day of the year.
