Welcome students and parents to Advanced Graphic Communications class.

This year-long HONORS elective course will be more fun, challenging, and rewarding for students than the pre-requisite Graphic Comm class. As always, in order to learn in a positive environment, basic rules and procedures are necessary. Please read, sign, and turn in on Schoology. Also, feel free to keep a copy of this document for yourself. The curriculum letter will have changes next semester IF we return to 100% traditional instruction.
