Hoopeston Area Middle School newspaper class students spent this week learning the fundamentals of photography. And today, they put those skills to use, capturing images utilizing great perspective, lighting, and composition; and the rule of thirds. They will put these skills to use in the coming weeks, as the first issue of this year’s “Cornjerker Times” is produced!

Students tested their lockers; met their teachers and principal; enjoyed burgers and hot dogs grilled by our Superintendent, Mr. Richardson; cooled off with Rotary Club ice cream; enjoyed the tunes of a DJ; smiled with Jerky; and took their turns dunking Mr. Blacketer in the dunk tank.
