My name is Mrs. Olden and I will be your teacher this year. I have prepared a syllabus for you and it is available online at the class website.
You will want to memorize and/or bookmark this link. I will post assignments there as well as resources and a gallery. Absent? Check here & Google Classroom to see what you missed.
Tonight your homework is to bring your parent or guardian to the website, find and review the syllabus and digitally sign it. You AND your parent or guardian must both sign the form. (Hint: hover over the appropriate course and click on > Syllabus)
Everything you will need to be successful in the class is provided however, I highly suggest having your own digital camera with manual control of ISO, aperture and shutter speed. Adobe Lightroom & Photoshop for computer is available at an educational rate of $9.99/month if you would like to access these programs at home.
