My Students

After Hurricane Sandy many of my students were displaced, or without power. They asked permission to print out their assignments for other classes using my classroom printer, and of course I said yes. Now we are left without toner for our own class projects and important documents! HELP!

My students are studying Fashion Design in an inner city environment.

They are excited to design and create clothing. They are super-stars in the making, that need nurturing to reach their full potential. There is a lot of poverty, drugs, violence and gang activity in the neighborhood. Everything about the culture of the neighborhood and its inhabitants pulls students away from education, studying, and working on their school assignments when outside of school. When they are in school, it is our job to show them the possibilities for their future, the additional skills and knowledge that can take them past the few blocks that they are familiar with, and catapult them into their dreams.

My Project

I am requesting 2 Black toner cartridges, 1 Cyan, 1 Yellow and 1 Magenta for an HP Color Laser Printer. My classroom is very productive, and we design many fantastic creations on the computer that need to be printed out to go into student portfolios. My classroom is also a nurturing place where less fortunate students always know they can stop by to type up a report or do research, or print out the assignment that they have no where else to print out. Donating to this project will help me help my students to do well not just in my class but to be better prepared for their other classes.

This project is so important because there are many more months of the school year and we have a beautiful Color Laser Printer in our classroom to print out our Computer Aided Designs.

Our only handicap is a lack of Toner. The ink was used up quickly to assist students who had no other means after the Super Storm hit. I knew the ink would run out and planned on purchasing it myself. The school can order me some for next year, but we need it now.
