The yearbooks—the long-awaited prize for the end of the year—have finally arrived! Yearbooks are wonderful keepsakes filled with all the memories of this past school year. The yearbook committee has worked long and hard all year. Dedicated to the yearbook, the staff is excited to share their hard work. The plan is to hand out yearbooks from May 23rd to 26th in the Hive concession stand during lunch.
The yearbook members work on stringent deadlines; to get a headstart on the heavy workload, the editors design the yearbook during the summer months. The editors started in early July, getting everything ready for the following school year such as picking the theme and prepping the cameras for the yearbook. The staff is already getting ready for the next year of hard work. In an effort to streamline the book-building process, next year will also include a few key updates.
For the upcoming school year, the yearbook staff will be stricter when allowing students to join the class. Generally, students enter the yearbook in the first trimester hoping for a laid-back class. Mrs. Wagner, the yearbook advisor, is enacting a new rule to remove rambunctious students. [“People realize I'm evil, and they run in terror”] Every student must be willing to take photos; lessons are provided. Deadline means deadline, and the whole yearbook is at risk when there is failure to meet them. Yearbook is not an easy A class. The yearbook staff is hoping stricter ground rules will assure that there are reliable workers on the committee throughout the school year. The staff of the yearbook wants members who are dedicated to their goals, both personally and within the yearbook staff.
As one of the most important records of school memories, the yearbook reflects on the past school year. Yearbooks are annual publications sold at the end of the academic year. The book contains pictures of staff, graduating seniors, awards students won over the school year, sports events, and club activities. The yearbook staff tries to ensure all extracurricular activities have a place; however, a few spring activities will be missing from the yearbook. Most sports or school events after March and April were unable to make the deadline for the yearbook, this includes the drama department’s end-of-the-year musical. Such as every assembly, the most important and eventful ones have a page in the yearbook. In the middle of the school year, the yearbook staff has to make tough choices about what stays and goes. As that is when the school year is filled with activities and memorable times.
With anticipation and excitement for the end of the year, students and staff of the school can finally get their hands on their very own yearbook, which will serve as a reminder of the pleasure, hard work, and memories made this 2022-2023 school year. The yearbook committee put large amounts of time and effort into the yearbook; with the new changes next year, the yearbook can only improve.
