Yearbook (cont’d) (Sieglinde)

In this twice weekly, yearlong Yearbook Class, students are co-editing, designing, and creating the 23-24 PSCS Yearbook. The  theme this year is Punk! which was decided by community process. We’re studying and learning the the intersectional history of punk, both as an aesthetic, as a sound, and as a movement—and applying it to a really cool archive of the year.

Our co-editors have already worked out the layout, timeline, and have gotten us started in Canva (easy to share, easy to organize, on the cheap). We hope to add 2-3 more folks interested in finalizing layout, writing copy, taking and organizing pictures, and creating pages/spreads in ways that capture this amazing community of humans.

The final result will be printed and shared with the community in June.

About the instructor: 20 years of graphic design, printing, and photography experience. Many years of experience with yearbook timelines, planning and layout (8th grade yearbook co-editor; High school yearbook staff).

Shop Life (Scobie)

If you like making things, fixing things,  and  being competent with tools, you should always take as much Shop Life as you can possibly get your hands on! Here’s what we’ll be doing:

  1. Learning about tools and the skills to use them effectively and safely.
  2. Working on improving, organizing, stocking, and cleaning our ever-developing shop.
  3. Contributing to the school and our larger community with fixes, furniture, and projects.
  4. Completing projects that result in gifts you can give to yourself or others.

Leadership (hannah)

This is a continuation of the fall term class. Anyone is welcome to join. We will continue to develop and practice leadership skills through planning, preparing, collaborating on, and facilitating community projects and school events. This term will include our second Community Engagement Day and the 30th anniversary Creative Cafe! 

This class will help you develop skills of time management, collaborating on small teams, giving and receiving feedback, verbal and online communication, work ethic, facilitation, task prioritization and delegation, risk-taking, goal-setting, and building confidence.
