“Every year I’m amazed at what our students are able to accomplish. Yearbook is a very non-traditional class where senior students are tasked with managing the staff and making sure that the book is finished on time. They start out a bit nervous and unsure, but as the year progresses and deadlines are met, their confidence builds and by the end of the year they have produced a beautiful yearbook that will be cherished for years to come. It’s inspiring to witness the teamwork and dedication that yearbook students develop and the pride they have in producing an amazing product.”
