Every student of mine has written a story, created a wonderful piece of art or drawn a picture at some point. All of these things are precious to each child, as well as, myself and their parents. I am asking for a personal laminator to keep my students work safe for a very long time. Students are often very proud of their work and want to display it. If I am able to laminate their work there will be no chance of it being destroyed. When things are hung in the hallway other students may come by and knock into their work and rip or tear it. Also the tape used often rips their work when they try to be remove it. If my students work is laminated this will not happen. I am asking for this laminating machine in order to preserve my students work so they can hang it up without worrying if it will get ruined. Thank you in advance for your help. I'm sure everyone wishes they could have the chance to make something wonderful and be able to keep it safe forever.
