Yearbook Picture HELP

The Gallantry Yearbook staff is here to share some exciting news with you regarding the 2021 yearbook. Guess what? You’re officially on the yearbook staff! Yes, you read that right! This year, more than ever, we ask that you join us in helping to create the book.

What are some ways you could help us achieve this task? Below are some ideas, but there are many other ways you can contribute:

  • What did you do during quarantine? Did you pick up any new skills?

  • Hanging out with friends or family during fall? Corn Mazes or pumpkin carving?

  • Is your style unique? Send us pictures of what you wear!

  • Have pictures from summer vacation? We want to see them!

  • Do you have a pet that is the most adorable thing? Let us see them!

  • Is your dancing out of this world? Send us a picture of your best moves!

  • What’s your pre-game routine during your sport(s) season?

  • Have you been making money? What job, chores, or apps (venmo, cash app, etc) have made you money?

  • Spending more time with your family in quarantine? Send us pictures of your favorite things you did with them!

  • Show us your go-to mask during Covid-19!

  • Know anyone with the same name as you? Let us know and we will get a picture of you together.

We can’t wait to see what you come up with! We are looking for HIGH QUALITY, non-blurry candid photos. While we love to see your beautiful, posed faces, we much prefer pictures of you doing these things, rather than you looking and smiling directly at the camera.

Submit your photo(s) here!

This yearbook is unique in that it will be created by the whole school. Thank you in advance for being a part of this historic year. Don’t forget to reserve your copy at www.jostensyearbooks.com!

Sincerely,

The Gallantry Yearbook Staff

German Corner

THE END OF AN ERA

On November 8, 2020 Berlin’s iconic Tegel International Airport closed for good. For many Berliners, the city’s only real airport was now relegated to the history books. The first aircraft touched down at Tegel in 1948 when Berlin’s main airport Tempelhof was having capacity problems during the Berlin airlift. In the 1950s and 1960s, Tegel was a symbol of the Cold War as only aircraft from the allied powers were allowed to land and take off. Tegel’s iconic hexagonal terminal opened in 1974 making walks from aircraft to exit as short as 30 meters. After the reunification of the two Germanys, the German National Airlines Lufthansa was finally allowed to operate out of Tegel. Flying out of Tegel was like taking a trip back in time to the 1970s. Tegel’s inability to handle the volume of air travelers in recent years forced its closure. The closure of Tegel marks the end of an era. Bis nächste Woche!
