CatStone Press is pleased to offer digital editions to your school.
We can take your student newsletter and make it something that the kids won't want to put down!
Use & Build all their skills in editorial writing, photography, design and add to that video and sound editing.
Bring in more student and teacher involvement by allowing for diverse information - add slideshows from the art department or videos of the football game!
Suggested digital elements in your newsletter could include: interviews with students or visiting authors and artists that can actually be heard when their photos are clicked; video interviews; Flash animated cartoons (in schools with that capability); interactive links for the school web pages such as lunch menus, homework pages, study references. The list is endless.
If your school has in place a minimum technological infrastructure, where the students can create a color pdf document of their newsletter, and they can learn to create short videos and sound bites, then we can bring it all together in a safe, easily viewed digital edition. The exciting digital newsletter can be viewed with privacy settings including password protection or even hosted by the school's website itself, so the students have a completely safe environment in which to express themselves and learn to hone their digital skills.
CatStone can help to offset the minimal costs involved by contacting sponsors for your newsletter. There are several options regarding sponsorship: if the school prefers no advertising, the base cost is not prohibitive and can often be easily paid for by the school itself; if the school would prefer the cost to be absolutely FREE, CatStone will find one large sponsor that the school approves for the last page of the newsletter; finally, if the school would like to use their newsletter as a fund raiser, small ads can be placed within the pages, in addition to the back page sponsor, and any money raised from the small ads go back to the school.
Finally, other publications for the school can also be purchased at CatStone Press - we are happy to publish digital versions, with all these interactive elements, for prospective student brochures, introductions to sports teams, or many kinds of tutorials.
