Once again this year we will be using our class website as a hub for our class. The site hosts a weekly message from the instructor on the home page. This message usually indicates what projects and tools we will be working with each week. Other pages on the site host specific resources like: videos, web links, an assignment calendar, a vocabulary tool called Quizlet, a file sharing page for assignment uploads, our task list and learning objectives for each task, as well as forms we use for managing all sorts of projects related to our yearbook work.
There is also a searchable keyword list on our site that can help you solve all kinds of photographic and design challenges. We will use other resources as well, but our class site is something that you should become very familiar with in the weeks to come and throughout the school year. I suggest that you visit this site at least three times a week.
The schedule for Physical Education classes has been completed and both AM and PM classes are scheduled for Phys. Ed. on Thursdays. The AM class will report to P.E. after attendance and announcements in our lab. The PM class will have Phys. Ed. around 12:45 each Thursday. Returning students - it is okay to wear you PE uniform from last year if you wish. New students - remember to order Phys. Ed. uniforms from the TCHS-Pickering Web Store. Your first Phys. Ed. class will be on August 30th.
If you have any questions regarding the coming school year or just wish to touch base, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am hoping to see all of you at our New Student Orientation/Back to School Night on August 22nd from 6 to 8 p.m. You will get your first chance at seeing our improved lab that night.
Thanks for choosing our school and our program,
Commercial Art Instructor
