Elementary Students Self-Publish Their Own Books

My students need color cartridges for our color printer so they can print the books that they write.

My Students

Almost none of my students have computers at home, but we have three in our classroom which are used solely for students to write their own books and print a copy to take home.

My students love writing and printing their own books.

Our student population is the second poorest in the 13th largest, school district in the U.S.A. They are kind, hard working, loving, and smart. Even though I buy a lot of supplies, I can't swing this one. They mostly come from Central America and the Caribbean. Their families do not apply for WICK, Aid to dependent families and children, or welfare, but they represent the poorest of the poor in our country. You will never meet a kinder, harder working group of kids anywhere.

My Project

Students love writing their own books and printing them in color. A generous donor funded our color printer and two sets of cartridges which students have used to print books for two years. Our cartridges are almost used up, and student publishing will cease if we don't have replacement color cartridges for our color laser printer.

For a child coming from a home that is food insecure, computer purchases are completely out of the question.

Money is used for bare necessities, but writing a book and printing it in color, feeds their souls.
