Help SWE Protect Memories and Teacher Materials!

The Description

With these funds I will purchase a roll laminator (and possibly a stand if our current one does not work for the model we select) for school-wide use to replace our former one that died after years of use. Our teachers spend money out of their personal budgets for decorations and organizational items each school year and in most schools they are able to laminate those materials to extend the use of them. Beyond teacher materials, the laminator is used for protecting important student work, creating bubble sheets for quick assessments for students and for projects our PTA and other groups are conducting.  While a laminator would initially not be seen as critical, on an elementary campus the provision of one goes beyond a perk/retention tool for teachers, but extends to instruction, campus climate and polish we want to project to our school community. Please help us replace this in a timely manner. Models for laminators range from $1,800 - $3,500+, but we believe we can buy one that will last for $2,600.

Back Up Plan

If I do not meet my goal, I will extend the life of this fundraiser until the goal is met. We simply must have a laminator and my campus budget cannot meet this expense.

All,
I have asked PledgeCents to close our fundraiser tonight and have alerted the SBISD Ed Foundation folks that money is on the way for our new laminator! Thank you so much for your donations- your gifts means the world to me. My teachers are SO excited that new laminator will soon be in our possession! I will let you know when it arrives! -Stefanie
