It’s Party Time!

The school year is starting with new staff members and yearbook veterans. That doesn’t mean you can’t already celebrate the achievements that have happened. Here’s how to start your year off right.


Live as only you can

The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can.

— Neil Gaiman, Author

Yearbook Pro-Tips

Coverage Pledge


I, _______________, solemnly swear
that this yearbook is not about me.
It is not a scrapbook of the yearbook class.
It is not about the “popular” kids, the football team, the homecoming court.
It is not even about my friends,
(even though I love them more than other people’s friends).
It is about everyone in my school.
It is about making everyone feel good.
This is my chance to pay it forward and make someone’s day.

I, ______________, solemnly swear
that I will try my best to cover everyone
in the school at least three times.
In the name of our yearbook: hooray!
