Stop, Laminate, and Listen!

Help me give my students a laminator to preserve special pieces of art that they are especially proud of.

My Students

I feel so fortunate to work in a district with such wonderful students, parents, and teachers! The kiddos are truly amazing. Each day they come to school ready to learn with smiles on their faces. It is apparent that they love our school.

My goal, as their librarian, is to provide educational opportunities that will increase their desire to learn and better themselves.

I want each and every student to get the most out of school that they possibly can. I want their lives to be positively impacted.

My Project

The laminating machine, pouches, and cart that I am requesting will allow students to preserve important pieces of work that they are especially proud of.

Nothing beats seeing a student hold up a special assignment or art project that they cannot wait to show off to their classmates and parents.

This machine will make their hard work last last even longer because of the laminating pouches. And it gets even better: the machine is simple enough for student use, which is something they can look forward to completing by themselves. I think, overall, having a laminator available will encourage students to try their hardest so that they will be able to utilize the machine.
