Picturing the School Year!

Help me give my students the opportunity to create their first yearbook. The cameras will allow them to get involved with photography and capture their last year.

My Students

I teach a yearbook course at a Title I School in Southeast DC. The class has twelve 8th grade students who are eager and interested in putting out their first yearbook. They are excited to be creative and to design something that will represent them and their last year here at the school. These students are ready and willing to get the work done to make this the best yearbook ever!

The students in this class are energetic, creative, ready to work and eager to learn.

This class is student-led, with a president that leads the class and make decisions. This group of students are awesome and I am lucky to have such great students to lead and work with.

My Project

These cameras will allow our students to capture their school year from their point of view. Students will use the cameras on a daily basis to capture their daily lives in middle school. It will give them a chance to visually share what they do at school and to share these pictures with the entire school.

As we are currently making our school a STEAM school, the cameras will allow students to express themselves with images and build a love for an extracurricular activity.

By donating to this project, you will be opening our students to endless possibilities and new experiences.
