Did you know that for the very first time, a junior high yearbook is being created for students in grades 7 and 8? Mrs. James is extra busy this year, advising both the high school yearbook staff who publish the Aurora each year, and the junior high school staff on their fantastic new endeavor!
For both of these yearbooks, the students determine the theme, take the photographs, conduct interviews, lay out the pages, proofread the content, and sell the books. Both books are student-created publications! Currently, the high school staff is completing the layout for winter activities and beginning the photography and reporting for spring events, including our upcoming graduation for the Class of 2018. The junior high yearbook has been submitted for publication and will be distributed in mid-May!
Mrs. James stated, “Most students seem to get the greatest enjoyment out of taking photos. However, the biggest kick comes when we crack the spine on the completed book for the first time! We are published authors!” The yearbook is one of the most authentic and student-centered projects in which our students can participate. Mrs. James concluded, “No other class project has the potential to be seen by as many people in as many places for as many years as our yearbooks are. We capture history!”
