WANTED: Pictures for the Yearbook

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 FALL OF THE BERLIN WALL

On November 9, 1989 East Germany’s Communist Party announced that starting at midnight, citizens of the German Democratic Republic (East Germany) could cross the country’s borders. More than two million people from East Berlin visited West Berlin over the course of that weekend. Both Westerners and Easterners celebrated with beer and champagne throwing a huge impromptu street party. People nicknamed “Mauerspecte (Wall Woodpeckers)” took hammers and chisels to the Wall knocking away chunks beginning its eventual destruction. The flood gates were opened never to be closed again. This was the beginning of the end of the division of Germany and the death throes of Communism in the East. I visited Berlin in July of 1989 and did not expect to witness the impossible only a few months later. It was monumental event in history and one of several I got to experience. If you would like more detailed information about the fall of the Berlin Wall, visit the website listed as a source. Bis nächste Woche!
