Class Fee: $15

Length: 2 Semesters

Prerequisites: None, however, please read the Class Description and Homework Requirements again to fully understand what you’re committing to. I cannot stress this enough.

Class Capacity: 7

Class Description:

Our main focus will be to produce an annual yearbook. During this fall semester, students will have an opportunity in class to: take candid photos, upload photos to TreeRing, vote on a cover, design pages, sign up for specific roles/tasks, and much more. Students considering joining this class need to be focused, motivated, and self-starters. This is a fast paced, and at times, demanding class. Students need to possess an eagerness to meet deadlines as they are assigned tasks. Organization and communication are key. Please consider these attributes as you make your decision as to whether or not this class is right for you. I cannot stress this enough. Attending both fall and spring semesters are encouraged.

Homework Requirements:

Students will be required, as needed, to work on the yearbook from home –  upload photos/or edit their pages. Internet at co-op can be hit or miss, so please understand that chances are, you will have homework. I will assign homework as the semester progresses.

Required Materials:

In class, digital camera (and/or good cell phone camera) along with accessories needed to upload photos from digital device to website, and your own email address separate from your parents’ primary registration email. At home you will need access to a desktop computer (not a tablet) with Chrome and Internet access. I will be checking for these things on the first day of class. 


There may be times that I ask specific students to show up early to co-op to take photos for events such as Crazy Hair Day, etc.
