Yearbook’s Final Touches
May 25, 2023
The yearbook class at Fair Grove High School is wrapping up this year’s yearbook and are ready to share it with the community.
The yearbook class puts together the yearbook for each school year. They take pictures at games, assemblies, and club meetings. They also go down to the elementary and take pictures of the elementary parties and events. This class is run by Ms. Beller, High School English Teacher.
Olivia Phelps, a sophomore in the yearbook class, said, “I decided to take yearbook this year because it had been an interest to me. I like yearbook because I have the opportunity to create pages that tell a story about our school year.”
In this class, Ms. Beller assigns eleven or more pages to the students in the class to edit, add pictures and captions to, or add names about who is in the pictures. They get to create the layouts to the pages and get quotes from students and faculty in the school district.
Emma Alfrey, a sophomore in yearbook, explained, “I decided to take yearbook because I was excited to be a part of such a creative process. I was also excited to get to hang out in a room full of super cool people all morning.”
Karlee Marion-Swan (10), gave her reasons for taking the class. “I love to take pictures. I find it to be exhilarating when you get a great live action shot. I also love to be with my friends and running around taking pictures and trying to get that perfect shot. I have a lot of upperclassman friends who are going to be graduating soon so these moments are super precious to me,” she explained.
Marion-Swan goes on to describe why she likes yearbook, “I love when I come into Ms. Beller’s classroom and the room is filled with sunlight. I also really love when I talk with my friends in the morning and how it starts off the day on a super positive note. Mrs. Beller is also really funny in the first hour and makes the class a great time.”
Alfrey said that the yearbook class is never too serious. There is serious decisions to be made, but they are always laughing and having fun debating about silly topics. “Overall it’s just a fun environment!” she added.
