Centennial's Art and Pottery Department


(more examples of student work under newsletters tab)

Welcome to Centennial's 
Art Department

Teacher: Dr. Jennifer Doerr

Please look in class files for a copy of the art syllabus, rules, and general outline of course units.

General Information:
Graded assignments are entered on Infinite Campus (usually on Friday)
If students are absent they will need to catch up after they return. Students may come in Tuesday after school to make up assignments.
Students have until 1 week before the end of a 9 weeks grading period to turn in any assignments. No points are deducted for late work. Also, students may improve assignments to raise their grade.
Students should get drinks and go to the bathroom during the passing period in between classes.
Students should have a pencil and eraser everyday!!!
Students should not have any electronic devices out without teacher permission. They are expected to be working in class at all times. 
Please do not call or text your child during school time--please call the office and they will have them get in touch with you. It is important to model the correct behavior and phone etiquette--especially as a parent.
I expect your child to work in art every day and to do their best. If you do not feel the same way perhaps a different  class would be a better choice.
