Film Studies and Green Screen

Today, Mr. Maddox’s film studies classes came in for a lesson on how to use the green screen.  Mrs. Layne demonstrated how to drop a photo or movie behind people on iMovie.  She then walked the students into the movie room, explained how students can use the room, took quick clips with the iPad, and then the students worked with the short video clips using iMovie.

 

Homecoming Week shots

We love the school spirit we have been seeing in the morning during Homecoming Week.  Yesterday, Mrs. Layne grabbed shots of people dressed in camouflage and farmer outfits, and today she caught people dressed in tacky clothing and pajamas.  I shared some photos here, but if you would like to see more, please go to our Facebook page.

Reading Club and Cosplay – Mark your calendars!

Love books?  Gasp in shock when someone has not read your favorite book?  Then, you need to stop by for our Reading Club.  We will meet during all lunches on Wednesday, November 5th in the library conference room.   You may bring your lunch.  Be prepared to discuss books to movies …. which is better – the book or the movie.  Why?

 

Also, Cosplay Friday is rescheduled to Thursday, November 6th.  The theme is heroes vs. villains.  Win prizes for the best costume!  Remember that your costume needs to match dress code.

Decorating, Prezi, and DISCUS

On Friday (the 10th) morning, one of our students spent time decorating part of our library for Halloween.  During the day, Mr. Babcock used the tv in the center area of the library to introduce students to Prezi Pro.  While he was doing that, Mrs. Layne was working with Mrs. Potter’s English classes and showing them how to use DISCUS.
