We only have 18 hours more of Media Studies class. Our main goal for the first two weeks is finishing Yearbook by April 3rd! I have an awesome 3d project we will do for the rest of the quarter. Then we will have the honor of distributing the Yearbooks.
Organize and submit your school photos for yearbook. Seniors set the example and get your Senior pics, quotes and info submitted by January 8th. Have a restful break, when we get back it is YEARBOOK season!
