Mr. Wargin from Oklahoma City OK is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Bringing Back the School Newspaper

My students need news stands so that the newspaper they create can be easily distributed to the student body. They also need a new yellow toner cartridge for the newspaper printer.

My Students

My students are the first in over five years to take on the task of bringing a school newspaper to their schoolmates and the community at large. For their entire high school career they have gone without a student-led publication that tells the stories from the perspective of those most qualified to tell them. They have taken a chance on an opportunity that is in its infancy which means they are willing to put in the work necessary to turn ideas into reality!

They are motivated risk-takers who are ready to bring a student voice back into the conversations being had about their school.

Too often the news articles and stories printed or broadcast about our school focus on the negative issues that affect our students. Overcrowding, high poverty, and violence are what is usually viewed as "fit to print", but this group of students is ready to change that.

As they dive into the process of becoming student-journalists, they will learn everything they can about their school, their community, and how events at the national and international level affect students in South Oklahoma City.

My Project

What is a newspaper without a proper way to display and distribute it? After working enthusiastically to create and publish our resurgent school newspaper the students will need a way to show off their work and provide access to their fellow schoolmates. Before they even get to that point they will need to be able to print the newspaper. Luckily, they have been donated a printer with the capability to make large, color prints. Only catch is that the yellow toner cartridge is low and must be replaced soon!

These supplies will ensure that the school newspaper is properly printed and prominently displayed to effectively validate the hard work of these student-journalists.
