Please remember that the Publisher Projects assigned the 4th six weeks are due by Friday March 7.  This change in deadline was announced on February 24.

Also when you are working on the steps for Project 3, you may stop after printing on page 172.

February 28

Today is the day to print the paper.  Remember NOT to duplex when you print to the color laserjet.  The paper should be placed in the bottom tray of the color laserjet printer.  The front page and the calendar are the only two pages to be printed in color.  Run 150 copies of each page.

We will probably need another two reams of paper from the office.  Someone go get this paper.  Check with Walter to see if he did this earlier.

Walter and Darryl may have started printing second hour.  Shanterria, please finish your calendar and print 150 color copies.  If Shanterria isn't here, open her calendar and finish it.  I think it is in Student Issues perhaps.  There are a few typos to correct and some text to boldface.  Also add Moving Holiday as the text on March 17 - 20.

Collate the paper, staple, and take to English teachers and the office.  Save me a copy please.

February 24

Today you should finish the February AXE.  Make sure your article is complete with a headline and byline and inserted in the final copy.

Also please note that the deadline for finishing the Publisher projects has changed to Friday, March 7.  No exceptions!

You did an excellent job on the January paper and I am very proud of you all.  Please don't forget to look at your handout or read below to see the Publisher 2003 assignment.

Also, by February 8, I need ONE finished copy of our Valentine's Day cookbook.  To make this happen, each of you must finish your three recipes.  Be sure that your recipe is easy to follow and has your name on the page.  Also include clip art and/or a border or other decoration.  Work together to design a cover that says Desktop Publishing 2008 Cookbook.  Add clip art and designs for Valentine's Day.  Have someone (maybe James or the sub) take your picture and put this on the inside of the back cover.  Get both covers laminated.  Punch holes and bind.  The cookbook should have at least 23 pages.  Remember that this is a group project and you are only making one book--mine!  THis is due February 8.

Have a great week!  Alicia Nichols
