Seniors Enjoy Yearbooks, Giving High Marks


Valerie Kress, Features Editor

On Wednesday June 8, the Class of 2016 received their yearbooks. For anyone who has parents who still have their yearbooks, you know that this book holds within its sturdy bindings the memories of high school that one can look back on decades down the road. From baby pictures to high school candids, the yearbook represents our whole lives.

After some controversy regarding what was going to be included in this yearbook—like sibling pictures and some superlatives, everyone seems very happy with the final product. The yearbook club and Ms. Cardo worked all year—and even during some of last year—to produce the book.

On reveal day, some smiled while flipping through the pages of the yearbook while reminiscing about the memories shown in the photos. Others cried, and for some, the yearbook was what caused the thought of graduation to set in.    

On the final Thursday and Friday, the seniors get to race around the schools to get signatures from their friends and teachers. Many waited on lines for their favorite teachers to scrawl paragraphs about four years’ memories and others scurried around for a simple signature.

All in all, the yearbook is an amazing keepsake of high school that every graduating senior can hold close to their hearts.
