My Students

We are a super diverse group of high school students with multiple disabilities. Our students range in age from 15 - 21 and have multiple disabilities ranging from Down Syndrome, Autism and other cognitive disabilities. We are a very active room and love to go exploring around our community, we are a suburban school just outside of Cincinnati.

We enjoy working in the community our kids work at The Library, School Cafeteria, Subway, and enjoy taking our weekly community trip to several different locations.

My Project

With this requested Fellowes Callisto laminator, thermal laminating pouches, and adhesive back dots, I will be able to save projects for multiple uses.

Too often I come up with great ideas and activities for my students, but they only last 2 or 3 uses.

This laminator will also allow me more time to interact with students and create new and exciting activities instead of rehashing the same ones over and over again.

Donating to my project will not only provide materials for my students but will also provide much needed time saving equipment for me, as well.

I am so excited at the thought of having these materials in my room and at our disposal.
