    Each year, our yearbook staffs have an incredible mission before them; it becomes the job of roughly 60+ STUDENTS, most of which have no prior experience, to capture an entire year of sports, clubs, academics, and overall student life, using newly acquired journalism AND advanced technology skills, while trying to identify roughly 8,000 students and staff accurately, IN JUST SEVEN MONTHS!!!!!

    Although we do our very best to get everything just right, inevitably there will be mistakes within the 400+ pages of our combined campuses yearbook. We apologize for any incorrect spelling of names, incorrect identifications, or clubs, teams, and students that did not make it onto our pages: it is never done intentionally.

    The best way to help correct the problems is to be a part of the solution. Join our staff and help make next year's book even better. Yearbook Journalism is a year-long English class offered to seniors and an elective for sophomores and juniors. If you are interested in creating the Yearbook, please contact your counselor.


    Thank you for understanding,
