The yearbook is a tradition that encapsulates our four years in high school for our future selves. While many of us might take it for granted, there’s a talented team working hard behind the scenes to put each yearbook together.
Yearbook Club, led by Hull High librarian Ms. Grosso, is in charge of creating and ordering the yearbook each year. Composed of mostly seniors, they have already started their work despite a small group of participants. However, Grosso says “the more we start working on the yearbook, the more people start to get involved,” so numbers are sure to climb.
The club is easier for some to participate in than in years past, especially because “most of the stuff is online, so we don’t always need to meet physically.” They use the photography company Lifetouch to provide page formatting and the book itself.
“It’s a lot easier than when I was in high school, and we had to draw out all the layouts on paper!” said Grosso.
She firmly believes the class of 2022 yearbook was the “best yearbook to date,” and hopes the club can do even better this year. “The layout was great, and the colors, and the cover,” she explained.
For the cover, they “worked with one of the graphic designers from Lifetouch,” which they plan to do again this year to provide stunning visuals.
Students are able to provide input on what they wish to see in their yearbook, from joining the club itself to helping design pages, or giving feedback on cover design options. Grosso is hoping that students interested in photography will soon submit photos the club can use, especially as the final design is due by March.
One of the main challenges the club is facing?
“There’s going to be people who forget about deadlines,” said Grosso. Students and parents should be sure to keep a lookout for emails and announcements about deadlines to ensure they have the best yearbook possible.
