Cameras for Yearbook Class!

My students need digital cameras and memory cards to capture the events and faces of the Delta Community for the school yearbook.

My Students

Do you still have your high school yearbook? Maybe you were on the yearbook committee, and your photographs are emblazoned across the pages. Now, imagine if your school didn't have any cameras. What would your yearbook have been like then?

Our yearbook class is going to start this week, and the kids are really excited.

Our school is a charter school for "at-risk" kids; kids who have not succeeded at a traditional high school for many reasons. Some face academic challenges, others emotional or social, some all three. However, ALL our kids are intelligent, witty, unique, beautiful, challenging, rewarding, and amazing. They come to our school to learn and change their lives for the better. Many of them come to us with amazing raw talent for the arts, and we have several budding photographers. Up until now, many have been using the cameras on their cell phones to take photographs for yearbook, but most of these cameras do not have high resolutions so the pictures will not work with the yearbook software.

My Project

With access to digital cameras, these students will get to explore and expand on their photography skills. They'll be able to document what it is that makes our school special, and create a yearbook that is truly student centered and student inspired.

Obtaining digital cameras for the yearbook class is very important to my kids, and not just because without them, we wont have a yearbook.

With 5 cameras for our small class of 18 students, each student will get to experience using the digital cameras and will be able to contribute to the yearbook. It's also important for our students to have access to the same technologies and opportunities of the larger, conventional high schools, but here in a place where they will thrive.
