In E-Journalism, we hope that students will develop abilities in writing composition, communication skills, social interaction, word-processing, photographic processing, and data management through the collection and preparation of data for the Crete-Monee Middle School website.  Students meet from 2:45 pm to 4:15 pm every other Monday.  (Unless otherwise noted.)
