If you are planning on submitting a film for the first annual RES Student Film Festival, the due date has been extended to Friday, March 28th. The Film Festival Crew decided to do this so that students would have more time to complete their projects.  This should give the committee enough time to get everything organized before Fine Arts Night on April 10th.

Also, GCPS ITRT,Zoe Parrish, made this AWESOME promotional video to help remind students that are interested in submitting films.  
You may notice in the video that I am offering 3 passes on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for student groups to visit the Library during lunch to complete their projects.  I’m hoping that this will make up for some lost time from all of these crazy snow days.  
If students are interested in obtaining a Film Festival Lunch Pass, they will need their teacher’s permission as well.  Passes will be available in the Library on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings and will be given out on a first come, first served basis.
Please let me know if you have any questions.  
Thanks so much!
Sue & the Film Festival Crew

The 4th grade students created their own version of Harry Potter’s Daily Prophet newspaper for Mrs. Crowder in honor of Principal Appreciation Week.  Students wrote stories about Mrs Crowder and published them in this special edition of the newspaper.

Story headlines included…

  • “Library Books Turned to Stone”
  • “Illegal Wand Use”
  • “Crowder Steals a Car”
  • “Trolls Causing Trouble”
  • “Wizarding Student Wanted”…and more!

The Student Council Association has already been hard at work this week in the Library.

A volunteer from GHS helped one of the SCA candidates film her commercial.

Students who are campaigning for an Officer position have been coming to the Library every day to create and edit their commercials, which will air next Wednesday at school.  The commercials were made with the iMovie app on the school’s iPads.  The results are simply awesome!

The SCA Officer candidates worked together and helped each other film their commercials.

We would like to send out a HUGE thanks to Mrs. Zoe Parrish, the new elementary ITRT, for her amazing guidance and assistance with this project!  We couldn’t have done it without you!

The RES SCA Officer candidates worked closely with ITRT, Mrs. Parrish on their commercial projects.
