My Students

Imagine spending 4 years--7:30am-5pm on weekdays, Saturday school together, and summer school with a bunch of peers and never capturing a single moment to remember years later?

Who: Grades 5-8 (ages 10-13) What: Hard working and nice!

How: Our students are in school for longer hours and a longer school year than most. Students at KIPP: Tech Valley Charter School work extremely hard and deserve to be rewarded for their desire, dedication and determination!

My Project

4 REFURBISHED cameras: One camera per grade (5-8) to use for the Yearbook club. 4 Sim Cards: One per camera/per grade to store pictures on camera. 5 Pack of USB's: One per grade (4) to transfer pictures to computer and (1) for Yearbook Teacher Leader.

If we get funded this year we will be able to offer a yearbook to the ENTIRE school--grades 5-8, teacher leaders, alumni, and parents/guardians!

Due to low funds last year, the Yearbook Adviser simply used Microsoft Works (Publisher) to create a black and white, stapled yearbook solely for the 8th grade class. Parents never received a yearbook, neither did the teacher leaders that taught students for 1-4 years. A yearbook ends the year on a good note! :)
