March of Dimes

Students in Ms. Packer's class have been working hard to prepare for our March of Dimes Fundraiser.  Their plan is to ask students to donate $2 on Thursday, April 26th.  All students who donate will get to participate in a blue jean dress down day on that same day.  Alex T. designed all of their informational posters that have been hung around the school! Way to go 104!! We know that your fundraiser will be a huge success!

Take Me Out To The Ball Game

This year, a select group of our students have been working with local advertising executives, learning about many of the careers offered in this field, as well as what goes into an major advertising campaign.  These advertising executives have been visiting Dobson School once a month for one 45 minute period discuss what they do everyday at their respective companies, from creating commercial scripts, advertisement layouts, slogans, timing and much more.  Students used this information and worked with the team from Philly Ad Group to design a potential poster and ticket for our production of High School Musical Jr..

Today, these students got to see how advertising works in the real world by visiting Citizen's Bank Park.  Students met with some of the Philllies Marketing Team, had a tour of the stadium, locker room and ate lunch in Ashburn Alley.  Students got to see the many places where a company could advertise, from the scoreboard to the rally towels, to even the schedule magnets.

Screaming Students!

Students in rooms 104 and 106 created self-portraits inspired by the Edvard Munch painting "The Scream".  Each student used the paint bucket and brush tools in Photoshop to paint the scenery in the background, and then they cut and pasted a photo of themselves that they took in Photobooth.  To make their photograph look more like a painting, each student applied a watercolor filter to the photo layer.   Exceptional work, rooms 104 and 106!
