Develop Creativity and Passion Through Photography!
You can still help! Would you consider making a donation to Mr. Fountain for our new Photography elective

Our students need a set of refurbished Canon EOS Rebel T5 DSLR cameras to learn the techniques and skills of photography. For details, see our Donors Choose page here

Students will be using these cameras in order to learn about the technical skills and themes involved with the art of photography. As our students enter the digital age, their intimate relationship with technology, as well as their need for resources, grows.

Specifically, students will explore the technicalities of photography through lessons in aperture, shutter speed, framing, and more. They can expect to experiment in such photographic styles as portraiture, landscape, macro, action, and others.

Looking for a Carpool?
Email your name, address, and a brief description of your need and we'll do our best to match you with someone in your area. Note: we're looking forward to launching our website's Parent Portal to support community needs like carpooling, but while it's under construction, we'll do it the old-fashioned email way!
Cross country season is beginning! Please check the 'Upcoming Events' at for meet dates and locations. All are welcome and practices are TBD. Contact Ms. McAdams with any questions.
