    Yearbook Class

    Students selected for this course will have the opportunity to become a published writer and the responsibility of producing The Spectator yearbook. While designing the pages of the yearbook, students will be instructed in basic principles of magazine layout, design and graphic arts. Students will also write feature stories (in AP style) to be used in the various sections and put together sidebar creations throughout. Staffers are able to learn new techniques and to take on new important roles in leadership and management. They are also invited to partake in many workshops around KC, the State and Nationally. This class is a real resume builder! You must fill out an online application to be considered.

    Photojournalism Class

    Students selected for this course learn various techniques in taking and developing photographs. A primary goal is to provide pictures for the yearbook and newspaper, but staffers will also get a chance to partake in many photography contests and workshops. The average assignments send our photographers backstage at plays, to the sidelines of games and even to the front of our assemblies. All students will have the opportunity to write captions (in AP style) and move up in responsibility and growth. This class will build your portfolio! You must fill out an online application to be considered.

    2019-2020 Yearbooks are still available for $70. Please email Jamie Gumina at jamie.gumina@lps53.org OR a student may visit her room, 707, for purchase.
