Hello all! I'm the yearbook sponsor this year and wanted to take a minute to share with you how phenomenal our Yearbook Staff is this year.
Although not necessarily eager at the beginning (they wanted PE...ha!), the students started the year finishing up last year's book. What a great way to learn about the InDesign program Walsworth uses! Students learned about setting up spreads, adding photos, use of color, photography, fonts, spacing, and so much more. As I watched them go through these modules, I realized that I wanted the students to leave yearbook class with more than just how to put together a yearbook. After giving it some thought and speaking with Mrs. Pickett, I decided to approach our class as more of a Publications course.
Hopefully you have noticed the elementary class blogs, the high school blog, and the athletics page here on the website. Guess what? Yearbook staff is in charge of that!
Maybe you've seen the students taking pictures around campus and at events. Yep...you guess it...they're yearbook staff.
What about social media? Students are working up to being in charge of the bulk of the school's social media posts. Of course we are on Facebook, but did you know we're on Instagram and Twitter?
School Newsletter? Yes...we are working on one of those, too. Just haven't made it that far.
On top of all of that, they are creating a 20th Anniversary yearbook that will knock your socks off! Plans include a Memory Lane section, as well as, memories scattered throughout the book. Be on the lookout...The Torch 2018 goes on sale this Friday through November 17 for $50. Senior Ads are on sale through the month of November (Senior parents you should have already received an email). We are also about to begin 1/4 page Student Ad sales for any student and Business Ad sales.
So...if you happen to see a yearbook staff member, feel free to give them some kudos, because I can attest to the fact that they have earned it!
