This year, the staff of the yearbook is continually working to get the yearbook done for the students.  Many of the yearbook students like this year’s theme the best.

This year’s theme is “Amplified.”  It’s pulling away from the usual mountain lion theme, but students of the yearbook staff really like this theme.

“I think this year’s is going to be the best yearbook,” Aalea Moore said.

“This year is my favorite theme,” MaRinda Smith said.

Each student is assigned different pages of the yearbook.  This helps for a faster production of the yearbook.

“I worked on the first page of ninth grade, a seventh grade page, C.I.A and reading club,” Moore said.

“I worked on an eighth grade page, the seventh and eighth grade organizational page, speech, newswriting and chess,” Smith said.
With the monthly deadlines, Moore can get her work done.
“I can usually get stuff done before the deadline comes.  I had trouble finding pictures that weren’t used already, but then I found one that I could use before the deadline came,” Moore said.
Smith had a similar feeling about the deadlines, but her opinion was a little different.

“Well, the first one was really easy, but after the first one they come really quick since it is due in March,” Smith said.

The deadlines come up very quickly.  The students must make their pages complete, get their pages and turn their papers in on time.

“I had trouble finding pictures that weren’t used already, but then I found one that I could use before the deadline came,” Moore said.

The students also get extra worksheets that will help them more with the yearbook.  Each year, students see that the hard work and dedication the students put in pays off.

As with every other subject, the students have their favorite part of yearbook.

“Getting to make our own pages. We get to make our own captions and get our own pictures,” Moore said.

“That would be making the book and taking pictures,” Smith said.

As the students in yearbook prepare the yearbook, the students of the junior high get excited to see the new yearbook.
