Help make this year's yearbook amazing! The yearbook club is accepting submission of quotes from students that will appear somewhere in the yearbook IN YOUR HANDWRITING! Of course, there are some requirements- the quotes can be about school, Pence, just advice about the year or school, or a fun memory from this school year. They MUST BE positive and school appropriate. They also must be original- from you (not a quote you copy/paste from someone else.) Interested? Students can access the form to submit their quote in their school email inbox. The deadline for submissions is December 22. If your quote is chosen, you will receive an email from Mrs. Dove with instructions in January.
