With about a month and a half left of school, the yearbook class has been working long and hard on the yearbook. The yearbook class and Mrs. Borcherding, yearbook teacher, were asked to share their progress on this year’s yearbook.
Mrs. Borcherding said, “We have about 50% of the pages already submitted, so I'd say that we are covering ground pretty well. The remaining pages are all at various levels of completion, so I'm confident that everything will be submitted on time.”
Ellie Westermeyer, sophomore, commented with, “We are moving along very well and I have about two more pages to go.”
Mrs. Borcherding was asked if she could talk about this year’s theme and the inspiration behind it. “The title is ‘Our Journey Begins Here’. Similar to books from previous years, this book is meant to document this school year, but we are also looking ahead in this book. We have asked students to think about where they will be years from now and to document goals. I think that it will be fun for students to look back a decade or two from now and see what they predicted their adult life to be.”
Next, everyone was asked what their favorite thing is about the class. Mrs. Borcherding talked about what she likes about the students. “The students are a great team. They work incredibly well together and they each pull their own weight.”
Senior Diana Ribera said, “I love how everyone is so different when it comes to making a [template] for the yearbook page. I also like how our yearbook theme is so subtle, which is so different than previous years because they would be in your face and ‘bam’.”
They were then asked if they would recommend this class to anyone. Hannah Rethemeyer, sophomore, commented with, “I would recommend this class to other people, not just because it is easy, but because it is fun and you would really enjoy it if you enjoy designing different things.”
Sophomore Dori McCarty voiced her opinion with, “Yes, definitely. It's a great experience and you have the freedom to really do whatever you want with your pages.”
Senior Lexi Oetterer said, “I would only recommend this class if the student is actually interested in taking pictures and making the yearbook. It is not just a blow-off class that people can take for an easy grade.”
Finally, McKenzie Overschmidt, junior, gave us something to be excited for or to look forward to, which is, “I would get excited for very detailed and colored pages!”
There you have it; sounds like they are making lots of progress. I would get excited to see the yearbook. Great job, yearbook class!
