    Yearbook

    The yearbook class is a co-curricular activity that meets every other day during Scout Time. Students that are interested in joining the staff are asked to go through an application process in the fourth quarter of their seventh grade year. They must fill out an extensive application and questionnaire and ask a current teacher to write them a recommendation. The staff is announced the last week of school. Over the summer, the counselors include yearbook as a part of their eighth grade schedule.

    During the school year, the staff is introduced to the basics of yearbook layout and design. They learn the publisher's online design program and build the book from a centralized theme. Third quarter (January to March) is the yearbook staff's busiest time as the publishing deadline is at the end of March. The staff then helps prepare the end-of-year all-school video by continuing to cover spring track and other relevant fourth quarter activities.
