    I got that also - is there some catch to it? I've been there every day this week, but keep forgetting to ask about it. I have no problem cutting my stuff if someone else is going to laminate it for free!

    wow!! I wonder if I can still sign up and get that deal. Or is it open to everyone?

    I can laminate at school, but I would rather get it all done this way!!

    Do you have to call ahead or do you just walk in to any officemax and they will do it?

    Does the stuff have to be bought from Office Max or can it be from anywhere?

    I called the Officemax near me and she said that she has gotten a lot of calls about this...There is no limit and bring your stuff in early..She said it is available to all teachers.

    Now my dimemna is I'm a new first grade teacher who hasn't seen her classroom yet..But, I want to get as much stuff laminated ahead of time as possible...What do I need laminated? Any suggestions?

    Name plates, any posters you might have, homework folders - or any other folders you want to last most of the year...

    I don't know any childrens names yet so I can't do name plates...I don't folders yet as I have to get these from my school...I was thinking of making some privacy offices but I would have to purchase the file folders to make them with and I know my school has them but I can't get into my school yet...AARRGG

    You can laminate the name plates ahead of time, and then use a permanent marker to write the names once you get your class list. (And that way, if someone moves prior to school starting, you can just use nail polish remover and still use the name plate.) If you go to Wal-mart or Sam's you can get a box of 100 manilla folders for about $5 - maybe even less to make your privacy folders. Hope that helps a little:D

    I live in Cumberland County - but I'm teaching in Robeson County. I actually live really close to a lot of county borders:) Where are you at? Are you from NC?

    I know there are other things that can be laminated, but my brain has decided it isn't time to get up yet:)

    I just finished school at ECU for licensure only, live in Apex (Wake County) and got my first teaching job in Angier (Harnett County). I will be in first grade. I was a TA for first grade last year and I love this grade. I got really lucky!

    When you think of something, let me know. I may go ahead and spend more money I don't have (since no income July and half of August, except bartending part time) and purchase the file folders so I can make offices..But then, my lead teacher told me not to buy anything because the school will provide just about everything.:confused:

    I wouldn't mind using this to have some file folder games ready this summer, but otherwise I have no problems using my school's lamination services. We just drop it off and there is a lady who does it within 24 hours. She does transportation stuff too so it is around that schedule. I'm satisfied with that.

    Do you need your badge or something to prove you are a teacher? I am a first year teacher and I still do not have a badge, and probably won't until pre-planning. I did sign up for the Max rewards for teachers online, but only have the temporary card I printed out. They said it could take up to 4 weeks to receive the actual card. Hmmm....

    My office max said I have to bring the flyer, and it's only an 8.5x11 sheet of lamination.

    I think all office max's are saying different things because I just called two near me and they are saying opposite. One said that they didn't know alot about it but that I had to bring in a coupon. The other one said that I don't need a coupon, just bring my things on in. I asked if there was a limit on what could be done and the girl told me that it depended on how busy it will get. So that tells me that I better go EARLY in the morning and go on the first Thursday (8/2) before they start to change the rules a bit.;)

    And just to think how much money I spent within the last couple of weeks to laminate my stuff!!:eek: My school offers free lamination but who has the time to wait for it to get laminated and come back?? But I bet I wont spend anymore money - I'm going to school on Monday and I'm snatching everything off of the walls & going right to Office Max on Thursday!!!!!:p

    My Office Max just got the memo about the coupon a little while before I got there. The lady working went and picked up the memo to double check and it says the laminating is unlimited - however much I bring in:) I don't have an assistant now that I'm in 4th grade so this saves me half a step - I'll just have to cut it all out. I'll be there when the doors open on Thursday:)
