Quill- Help Us To Laminate And Print Our Work!

My students need 2 packs of laminating sheets, 2 cases of paper and 2 sets of ink in order to create awesome bulletin boards.

My Students

Do you remember creating a beautiful piece of art or writing for a bulletin board only to have it destroyed?

I teach 24 first grade students in an inner city, high crime area in Pennsylvania.

All of my students receive free breakfast and lunch. The majority of my pupils are reading and writing below grade level. Many of my students do not speak English at home.

My Project

I am requesting paper, ink and laminating sheets for my students to create a beautiful bulletin board. I love to display my students' work in the hallway but I am unhappy when their projects get destroyed by others. I want ink so I can make copies of their work in case anything happens to their projects. I am also requesting laminating sheets to protect their projects. Lastly, I am requesting paper so my students have materials on which to create their art or writing projects.

Please help my first graders make bulletin boards that will make them proud of their work.

I want to help build my students' self esteem. I think that it is very important for my students to be able to display their work without worrying about if anything will happen to their art or writing projects.
