Mrs. Vigil from Midlothian IL is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Memories Through the Eyes of Our Students!

My students need 1 camera to take pictures of all the memories throughout the school year. This would be an awesome tool for yearbook club and getting students involved.

My Students

My students are from a low income school in Midlothian, IL. Everyday can be a challenge for them. These students deserve the opportunity to learn and thrive within our district. My energetic middle school students enjoy being part of groups, as well as clubs and come to school ready to learn, discover, and explore. They are always open to try new things! Making memories and being able to share them with others is so important for middle school students as they continue their education journey.

My Project

The camera I have selected will help my students capture memories from their day to day experiences in school and extra curricular lives. It will be shared by all the students and will also be part of the yearbook club. Without the camera, it is impossible to capture the moments that will never be repeated again.

My students will be engaged and active teenagers capturing memories day in and day out!

The students will use this opportunity to become responsible teenagers that can learn how to take photos. They will make sure the camera is working correctly and share the photos with others.
