Members of the Rush Creek Elementary Photo Club celebrated a year in pictures during a Photography Gala May 17 at the ISD 279 school. 

Approximately 20 fifth graders participated in the yearlong club, meeting once a week during their recess with parent volunteer Gina Walseth and Library Media Specialist Donna Ohlgren to learn and practice different photo techniques with their iPad.  

The Photography Gala, according to Ohlgren, was a "culminating event" to showcase what the students had learned throughout the year. Parents and staff were invited to view a display of photos (several pictured above and below article). 

"It was amazing the skills they learned and the progress they made," Ohlgren said. "They received a lot of positive feedback." 

To help support the printing and poster costs of the project, the Rush Creek Elementary PTO assisted with funding.
