A lesson on animal life cycles

The Southwestern College Photoclub had it’s first event! In an attempt to promote photography in young people, we attended a field trip with Ms. Montoya and the 2nd graders of Central Elementary in Imperial Beach. Two club members attended the event and many pictures were taken by both of us who attended and the kids who were provided with disposable cameras that we must now develop. We will return with the finished pictures and help the kids make collages of the photographs that they took. This time, we took a bus tour, wandered around a little checking some of the animals out and the kids attended a little assembly to learn more about the life cycles of animals. This has become one of our regular events that we perform each semester and it is always a lot of fun! I have included some pictures taken during our event. This is the kind of things we’re involved with this semester. Please come join us! Our meetings occur Wednesday between 11-12 in Rm. 518 and we also hang out on Friday’s between 12 and 3:30PM in Rm. 518 during our advisor Todd’s lab. If you can’t make the meetings, this is like a second meeting and we encourage you to come hang out with us! We have lots more interesting events upcoming. Keep an eye here for reviews of our events and to keep posted on what is coming up.

Hanging out at our Friday meeting.Chartered at the ICC Meeting 2.Chartered at the ICC meeting.Our club was rechartered for the Spring Semester on the 1st of February. The officers for the club are Valeria Sanchez, President, Laura Palomino, Vice President, Pablo, our Secretary and Susan Sanchez our Treasurer. I will be taking the ICC representative this semester plus I will be setting up and maintaining our Internet presence and this website as well. We have some interesting events planned including a trip to the Zoo with the 2nd graders of Ms. Montoya’s 2nd grade class at Central Elementary in Imperial Beach. You will have the chance to see some of the things we’ve done as I always include photos of each event. What would be better is for you to come to some of our events and experience what it is to be a member of our Photo club!

We are graciously accepting all people interested in the arts to our club. We are increasing our horizons to now include the fine arts in our club. We are transitioning to the SWC Photo & Arts Club slowly and surely. Planned events include a field trip with Ms. Montoya and the 2nd graders of Central Elementary, a camping trip and a fundraiser somewhere in there. We would like to do another riverbed clean up event and bring other clubs in the ASO into this event. Keep an eye on this page for news about our events and when they will occur and then a blurb about everything and how it went afterwards. Welcome to the SWC Photoclub for Spring 2010!
