Attaching an ATR-55 to a boompole

Hi. I'm in charge of buying some audio equipment for a high school youth group, and I'm a bit out of my element. Could someone tell me what type of shock mount I'd have to buy to attach an ATR-55 mic...

... to this Rode boom:

As you might guess, there's not a lot in the budget for this, so cheaper is better. I'd appreciate any help, thanks.

This universal shockmount should work.

However, the ATR-55 has a coiled cable terminating in a 1/8" jack (comes included with an 1/8" to 1/4" adapter). It's meant to be used as a camera mounted microphone. You realize you'll need an extension cable to reach from the microphone to the camera. Does the camera have this type of input jack?
