What's Up In the Business Department
In Website class our job is to maintain the school's website. We are always writing stories and taking pictures of the High School, Middle School, and the Elementary School. We cover all sports in the Middle School and the High School, and events through out the entire school district.
In Media, we have been concentrating on selling ads to create revenue for our yearbook. Since we don’t receive any monies from the school, we have to make up the difference between the amount we make in book sales and the total contract price with our ad sales. We went to area businesses back in September and so far our total ad income is $2,655. Our goal is right around $7,000. We’re on our way! We are also learning the basics of design with our first layout using Online Design.
In Accounting, we are posting from the General Journal to the General Ledger. This is a process that includes posting individual items from the General Debit and Credit columns and posting the totals from the special columns (Sales Credit, Cash Debit, and Cash Credit).
This had been an ongoing process of learning how to record transactions from source documents. To do that, students had to use their previous knowledge of the accounting equation and what type of balances each account has.
In Photoshop, students have been working on learning the Pen Tool, the most highly used selection tool in the program. It is also the most difficult one to learn. They started out by creating a selection on their own picture to use on a magazine cover and now they are working on creating a travel post card.
