A Day in the life of Stone Bridge


A Day in the Life of Stone Bridge Middle School is an entire class project presented by the 8th grade digital photography students, which culminates a recent unit of study focusing on photojournalism. Students explored some of the elements that make photojournalism different from other types of photography- "timeliness" in relation to current events or happenings, "objectivity" in capturing events accurately, and the idea that a picture should tell the story- and combined the fundamentals of good composition and other key basics of photography in order to share with the community what a typical day is like at SBMS.


We applaud our students (and Mrs. Moots) for their exceptional photographs.

The flags resemble the day that the entire 7th and 8th graders connected into one team in the beginning of the school year. As the flags hang in the foyer of the school's upper level, the day will stay in their memories forever.
