Class Room Needs! Donate to Your Video Class!
Room 1140~ Last year many parents and families gave generously to my class to help. this year I have a list that will help my class run more smoothly. 1. Hand Sanitizer: (the big refill helps me keep the bottle always filled, especially during cold and flu season!) 2. Disinfecting wipes: I believe a clean keyboard and a clean mouse helps prevent the spread of germs. 3. Windex: In case you have not noticed, the studio is filled with glass separators between edit bays; they get dirty beyond belief! 4.Expo Markers: Believe it or not, I use the white board everyday...I run through these pretty easily. the fatter the marker, the easier it is for students to see. 5. White Board Paint: I have very few places to use a whiteboard. The paint allows me to utilize every available wall space without the need to buy expensive white boards. 6.

USB Flash Drives and SD CARDs Class 10: Students transfer their productions from our systems to their personal systems to upload to vimeo.com for future viewing. 8 gig minimum 8. SD cards: Class 10 cards help us maintain professional quality throughout our productions. 9. Time: We need industry professionals to help us with joining our productions with the work force in the "real world." 10. Money: Things break, new technologies emerge, and we are always in need of more systems to help our students get the knowledge they need to succeed. Money helps our program stay on the forefront of the changing technologies. Please do not hesitate tocontact the instructor on ways you can donate!
