This year, the production of the yearbook has been converted into a class, 21st Century Skills in the Business Environment. Within this class, students work on graphic design, writing, photography, marketing, editing and revising the yearbook. Students use the Lifetouch online program to create the yearbook. Every page has to be looked at several times to be sure that the pictures and text boxes are aligned correctly, pages are numbered, names are included and spelled correctly, and more. Consistency and accuracy are always the goal and a top priority; especially when we work together as a group to create the book. But, the yearbook is, at the end of the day, a student publication. A few editing errors slip through now and then, but we always give 100% effort.

The goal of the yearbook is to capture memorable moments that have happened at school that will resonate with students this year, and five or 25 years from now. Students are always welcome to share photographs for senior casuals, of classmates & friends and more. The key to getting published is to be in contact with Mrs. Cooney to meet deadlines. See below for order information and other frequently asked questions.
