Journalism Club Interview
She joined the Journalism Club, because of a her great interest in writing. She really enjoys the topics Mrs. Ledkins assigns them, because it gives her a chance to share an opinion and how she feels about that topic. Being in Journalism has fueled her desire to write a novel and has made her a better photographer. She likes writing more than photography because of her love to read. She’s always wanted to make a story that people will love and makes them happy. Her weakest point is taking the pictures, they tend to come out blurry and unfocused. Her strongest point is writing “When I usually get a topic to write about I can create the paragraphs easily, because I feel comfortable doing it.” Although competitions don’t have a place here, they’ve done group projects. One of them she did with Andrea Valdez, they took pictures of different poses and organized others in poses. When it comes to topics they’re assigned, they just have to come up the ideas. “I would just say that the world is always camera ready, and you shouldn't doubt whether or not people will like the picture you took. Just take it and don't care about what people say about it there are photo opportunities everywhere.”

Field Day is happening on May 29th. It is going to be awesome. As some of you know we haven't and aren't going to have water day, this day is just a replacement. There will be way more activities to do like wiffle ball, flag football, dodge ball/ kickball, powder puff football, basketball, gaga pit, water balloon toss, water balloon volleyball, and even karaoke. This is going to be an all day event concluding with the championship basketball games. Student Council will also be running a dj booth and there will be a concession stand. So, don't forget to bring money! This day will be the best school day ever (besides the last day of school of course.) This day might even be better than water day, you can be the judge.
