Calling all students to design the 2021-2022 Yearbook Cover!
The theme for this year’s yearbook cover is Hope/Resilience/Sticking with It. Each design should reflect the theme. Students should create their designs on 8.5x11 paper and turn them into their classroom teacher by November 16th.
All students will get a chance to vote for their favorite cover at the end of November. The winner will be announced during morning announcements. The winning submission will be featured on the cover of the yearbook.
