Capturing the Moments

My students need a second digital camera to be able to photograph all the sports, activities, and events that happen on our campus.

My Students

Of the students enrolled at our school, 75% belong to a minority group, and 82% are economically disadvantaged. We are steadily making gains in literacy and math scores, and we strive to prepare students to for college and/or career.

We are a diverse bunch united by a common spirit, though many of our students face very real struggles inside and outside the school building.

We unite to cheer on our teams in various sports and competitions against our cross town rival school. We come together to celebrate our successes and one another.

My Project

An extra camera will increase the ability of my students to capture the moments that matter to them throughout the year, to create a better yearbook each year, and will enable me to more easily teach them photography skills. Right now, we have only one camera, supplemented only by my own camera from home, which I have had to use or loan on several occasions to ensure we could photograph events, games, etc.

I want to put a camera in the hands of every student on staff, and put the entire staff at the helm of the yearbook.

I want our yearbook to be about the students capturing the moments that matter and creating a yearbook that emphasizes what they want to remember about their high school days.
