Today in Mr. Dougan's A+ Computer Repair class, twelve students tore apart a computer by removing all the inside pieces and then reassembling it. The students hooked the computer back up with the keyboard and monitor, then turned it on. After fixing a few glitches, the computer worked! SUCCESS!!

Screening of "Buck" & Meet the Director

Submitted by anna.palmer on Thu, 09/26/2013 - 11:19

Recently Mr. Arnold’s film students participated in a field trip to the Covey Center for the Arts. There they viewed a special screening of the documentary “Buck” hosted by Sundance Institute. This film was actually the Audience Award winner for the “Documentary” category at the 2011 Sundance Festival. Afterwards, students returned to ALC for lunch and an exclusive Q&A with Director Cindy Meehl. What an incredible opportunity this was for students to meet with a Film Director in person to ask questions significant to their field of study and, more importantly, their potential future careers.

The link below directs you to a short YouTube video that gives a little background on filmmaker Cindy Meehl and what the film “Buck” is all about.
