McAuliffe works with trusted partner organizations in running After School Enrichments during the fall, winter and spring. Enrichment classes run one day per week and take place after school, usually starting right after school and ending by about 5:30pm.

Parents need to contact the organization directly to register and pay for the enrichment. Classes with insufficient registrations may be cancelled, and there is a maximum number of students each class can accommodate. For questions about this program or for information about scholarships, please contact Sherry Beardshear at sherry_beardshear@dpsk12.org.

Photography – Beyond the Selfie

Fundamentals of photography for middle school kids. Students will learn all the critical elements involved in composing an image. We will practice using various light sources, basic editing skills and how to give and receive feedback. We will work inside and outside of the classroom. Students must bring their own camera and it’s manual (if possible). We can work with an iPhone or iPad but it won’t provide as many learning opportunities. Kids may bring laptops to the class. If they can not, they will be encouraged to practice some basic edits on a home computer. I will work with the students who do not have technology at home.
