Parents and students,

This year the IHES yearbook staff is having a contest for the yearbook cover. Here are the directions from the yearbook staff:
STARTING WEDNESDAY November 12. They will be given two weeks to design a rough draft on the paper. The cover can have ANY design of the artist’s choosing BUT it must center around Pirates, fill the ENTIRE SPACE (as if it were an open cover of a book) and incorporate the school name or school initials and school year. When the rough draft is done it can be turned in with the artist’s name on the back and the artist’s teacher’s name and grade level. If students worked with a sibling (or siblings) or partner all students’ names, teachers’ name and grade levels must be on the back. Only current IHES students may participate. Any medium EXCEPT pencil sketch can be used. ALL Drawings are due at the end of the day Tuesday November 25!
