Good Morning Donors!  This was an incredible week at National Collegiate Prep. On Tuesday our senior class graduated and every graduating senior See More

EVENT DATE Apr 04, 2016

THE STORY:

National Collegiate Prep Public Charter High was the first International Baccalaureate school in Ward 8 of Washington DC. Our mission is to make  a world class education available to any student in Washington DC regardless, of where they live.

In my 12th Grade DC History class we are making biographical children's books on important but lesser known Washingtonians. I have partnered with an adjoining elementary school. After our biographies are published they will be presented to Ingenuity Prep Elementary School's library. 

 My students have already conducted research on Fredrick Douglass, James Wormley , Anna Julia Cooper, John Mercer Langston, and Francis Cardoza. The students conducted their research using text resources from DC Public Library's reference collection. Now they need your help! The least expensive self-publishing kits are $20 a kit. I have 28 pairs of students that each will need a self-publishing kit. The remainder will be spent on purchasing additional art supplies for illustrating the books.
