Sixty percent of the students in my class last year lost their homes and belongings in Hurricane Harvey. In addition, they lost their classroom too. We began school a month later than planned at a local church in town last year. This new school year (18-19) we hope to be back in our building, but it will be a close call!
My students are brave and adaptable.
These are just a few words I could use to describe them. They have embraced this year and have made the best out of the traumatic time in their short little lives. I cannot say enough good things about this sweet little class.
Our school was flooded during Hurrican Harvey. The campus held water for multiple days after the storm passed through town. We lost most of our machines and devices in the flood also.
A lamination machine is used across the campus for many different reasons.
Students create beautiful pieces of art that deserve to be laminated. We would be able to do this with this new machine. The students deserve to be able to save their work for years to come by laminating it.
Other uses for the laminator would be anchor charts for the students to use in their classrooms, report card covers for students progress, memory book covers for student memories, parent information signs for directions and campus information, directional signs to navigate the campus for students to read when in the hall, safety signs, and school wide mottos and chants just to name a few.
