My students need a camera, a photoprinter, and studio lights to ensure that the memories of every student on campus are given a chance to shine.
Enterprising. Resourceful. Determined. My students have high expectations for themselves, their teachers, and the quality of education they receive. Located in a small suburban community on the outskirts of town, many travel a great distance from their home school neighborhoods to become a member of our diverse, vibrant learning community.
My students already realize that they are a few short years away from the complex concerns of adulthood and worry about getting into college and eventually taking their place in the workforce.
Many express concerns over acquiring the skills they'll need to make the transition to the real world.
Yearbook and two Photojournalism classes will provide over 150 students this year with the opportunity to acquire authentic workplace skills while showcasing our school community through the production of our yearbook and a monthly newspaper.
Photojournalism and yearbook classes create a place where students can investigate, report, and create in a collaborative environment knowing that their work will be shared with the entire school. The students this year have the talent, commitment, and passion. All they need now is the equipment.
The camera will allow these students to capture our after school sports teams in action and our drama productions, while the studio lights will make it possible to take portraits of students who missed school picture days.
Your donation will not only impact the lives of the journalism students who use it, but of all the students on campus and their families. Moments are fleeting. Memories fade. A picture taken with clarity and compassion can last several lifetimes.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
