When does a pair of scissors zip instead of snip? When you are trimming lamination! During a recent study hall the above high schoolers helped trim excess lamination off of easy phonics readers for PTA’s National Honor Society service project. These readers are destined for eight schools in Micronesia. There the humidity wreaks havoc on paper of all kinds says Mrs. Dana Waterman, former student missionary to Ebeye Seventh-day Adventist School, one of the schools destined to receive the books. The lamination extends the life of the book and keeps the pictures looking sharp.
PTA’s National Honor Society’s service project aims to send each school five short-vowel sets of 10 readers each and five long-vowel sets of 10 readers each. Each booklet will contain four laminated sheets, which when stapled creates an eight page easy reader. Do the math and you’ll see that eventually 3,200 pages will need to be laminated and trimmed. Thanks to many helpful hands, we have compiled enough to send to our first school, that’s 100 books, or 400 pages of lamination. Thank you, students! Speak with Mrs. Goorhuis, our National Honor Society sponsor if you wish to help.
