Scrapbook Club

Advisor:  Mrs. Moisan (B4)

Grades: 6-7-8
September - April
Every other Thursday, 2:30-3:55
Open to all students who want to explore their creativity.  Bring your photos and make fun scrapbook pages!  Basic scrapbook materials are made available for your use, or bring your own to share.
 
Do you like to take pictures and want to show them off in a creative way? Then Scrapbook Club may be the perfect club for you!

Scrapbooking is a hobby that has continued to grow in popularity for the last decade. Scrapbook Club offers students an opportunity to express themselves by incorporating pictures, memorabilia, decorative paper, stickers, and die cuts into creative scrapbook pages. Students will have the opportunity to use a variety of tools and materials and will learn and practice techniques that help them showcase their pictures. No previous experience is required...all that's needed is a desire to express your individuality and a few photographs for each page you wish to create. Decorative paper, cardstock, page protectors, stickers, die cuts, adhesives, markers, and an assortment of scissors (regular and decorative) will be provided. Scrapbooks are not furnished for students, but page protectors will be provided that will fit into any standard 12" by 12" post-style album.

A $10.00 supply fee is required to cover consumable items such as paper, stickers, page protectors, and glue. Because materials are purchased on sale and in bulk, club members will have access to materials valued at a great deal more that the $10.00 fee. A full refund of the fee will be given to any student who decides to quit Scrapbook Club during the first month...after that the money will have been used to purchase materials for the club and a refund cannot be issued. Members are free to purchase their own supplies for their personal use.

The club meets approximately twice a month on Thursdays in Room E5 from 2:30 to 3:55 (allowing students ample time to catch the activity bus). A calendar will be provided at the first meeting and students will receive reminders the day before the meeting during the morning and afternoon announcements. In case a meeting has to be canceled, students will be notified as soon as possible.

Yearbook

Grades: 6-7-8

Advisor:  Mrs. Ryan (Room A7)

The yearbook staff works to put together highlights of the entire school year.  Most students do buy a yearbook and being a part of the process is a great honor and carries great responsibility.  No prior experience is necessary.  The advisor stresses commitment: putting together the yearbook takes almost the entire school year. Yearbook meets most Mondays from 2:30 - 3:45 and dates will be added, especially before big deadlines.
