Yearbook Distribution Day is almost here, how has this year been for The Pride 2016?

The time we have been waiting for is almost here, Yearbook Distribution Day is Wednesday, May 18th during all lunches in the Panther Den! As the Yearbook Editor-in-Chief, I am incredibly proud of all the hard work this year's staff put into this book. It takes not one, but all of us to make it all happen. It's not easy work and some may think it is, but together we have made it happen and "The Pride" could not be happier to finally see our completed book soon. We were able to do some amazing things to it this year, and we are excited to see the reactions of the student body! It's always awesome to see the students appreciate and admire something you worked so hard on all year long!

- Mariana Massuchetto
