Standards of conduct:

  • Take pride in the staff. Please protect our reputation and privileges.
  • Treat others with respect and dignity. Above all, maintain the integrity of the publication.
  • While individual work is necessary, working as a team member is essential.
  • Clean, organized work areas promote a good working environment.

Notes about the class:

Many staff members think this is just a photography class, and while photos make the yearbook, so does editing and captioning the year. There is a tremendous amount of work completed during and after classtime. Your grade depends on capturing clear photos that show the subject, identifying what is going on, and translating that onto the website yearbook avenue. Students who do not have each of these elements will receive a lower percentage on their grade.

Also, we publish a book for half of the school. In order for the book to be published on time, the yearbook publisher requires that we meet certain deadlines. If you fail to meet a deadline that is set, your grade will drop significantly.

Marketing and advertising is also essential, and there will be many occasions in which you need to document evidence that an effort to market or sell ads has been made. Similarly, extra credit can be made in the first quarter if you also demonstrate that you helped sell a business or senior ad.
