Clink For Ink!

Help me give my students ink cartridges to create beautiful certificates and invitations for our Student of the Month program!

My Students

Were you ever the student of the month? Did you get a beautiful certificate? Now imagine your invitation and certificate in black and white ink on plain white printer paper.

The students at my school deserve certificates and invitations printed in color!

Our district is phasing out color printers due to the expense of ink cartridges.

Our school has a student of the month program that focuses on character traits such as respect, responsibility, kindness, tolerance, and others. We also have a program that rewards effort. M.A.P.S.

(Motivated and Persistent Students) Each student receives a personalized colorful invitation. Then the students receive a personalized colorful certificate. I need to find funding for my color printer to keep the certificates and invitations coming! Please help motivate our students to keep working and to keep demonstrating good citizenship!

My Project

Ink cartridges are needed to continue to provide colorful invitations and certificates to our Students of the Month and our M.A.P.S.(Motivated and Persistent) students. A certificate printed in black and white on plain paper is not motivating to our students.

Colorful certificates are motivating and worthy of framing!

Help me provide the students of my school something they can be proud of!

Imagine your child or grandchild, what type of certificate would you want them to bring home. Our kids deserve colorful certificates! Children feel valued when they are given quality materials. A colorful certificate will make our children feel that they have truly accomplished something.
