11/17/2014: Volunteers needed for Yearbook Committee

The Yearbook Committee is looking for volunteers in the following areas:

1) photographers to cover event, club and miscellaneous photo opportunities

2) volunteers to help with digital photo page layouts (it is a lot like creating an online greeting card or photo album and it is super easy)

3) volunteers to help with sale and distribution of the yearbook to the student body

The yearbook is digitally designed and the publishers’ software is easy to learn. Most project timelines are flexible and can be adjusted as your schedule permits. If you would like to join a group of volunteers working together to create a memorable yearbook please contact the yearbook coordinator.

A planning meeting will be held on December 3rd at 7PM in the school cafeteria.  All 6th graders interested in helping work on the yearbook are welcome to attend.
