A single edition of a yearbook serves many purposes. It is a public relations tool, reference book, record book, picture book, history book, but, most importantly, it is an educational experience. It is with this understanding that the editors and staff undertake their task to accurately capture the entirety of one school year. The Yearbook class is an elective course in which students learn the techniques and principles of yearbook journalism, the graphic principles of layout and design, and the fundamentals of managing a small business. The goal of the staff is to produce a journalistically sound, creative, and unique book on time and within a budget; foster student growth in journalism and graphic design; develop leadership skills, and provide experience in business management. Students in Yearbook will learn programs and skills necessary to create the school yearbook.
