Welcome to Photojournalism!! This is a great, interactive, and creative class that students will really enjoy. The focus of the class is the PACE West yearbook. We design the yearbook throughout the year. Each student in the class will be assigned multiple pages to create. This will involve using special software such as Photoshop, Print shop, and Picasa. We will use Pic Monkey at times also for editing. This is a major project and most of the student's grade for the year will be based on participating in the creation of the book. Editing and organizing will be a play a major role in student learning and the success of the yearbook.
In addition to the yearbook, students will create greeting cards, posters for different events at PACE West, banners for graduation, and a 2017 calendar that is unique to the individual student.
It is very important that students work as a team to complete the yearbook. It will be distributed in June to the whole school, staff and students alike. The yearbook is a memory that our students will look at for years to come.
Ms. Joyce and I look forward to another successful yearbook and great year!!

We are very excited to have started learning our new yearbook program through the Balfour Company. Our school purchased the program and we will now create all of our yearbook pages through this website. Ms. Charlotte from Balfour will visit us periodically to help us navigate the program. This program allows for more creativity and will be another program students can learn to increase their graphic design skills and add to their resumes if they wish to do so!! Updates will continue as the year proceeds.
