Anonymous asked: random questions! 1) what's your position on staff? 2) are you graduating this year? 3) how does yearbook distribution work at your school? my school distributes in august so we can cover graduation and prom in our book and stuff. i know some schools even have a fall book and spring book. 4) what's the relationship between the yb staff and the newspaper? at my school, we have our separate ways, but help the other out when we're in need.
Happy Memorial Day! I love random questions!
1. I am the sole Editor-in-Chief of my staff for the 2012 school year.
2. I am graduating this year, but I hope to work on the yearbook staff in college.
3. We actually have two days for distribution. The first is a “by invitation only” sort of deal where 50 randomly selected people will be able to pick up their books June 1 during their lunch period. We’re providing snacks and drinks.
The second happens next Monday- everyone is able to pick up their books all day long. We sell Sharpies and hang out in our staff shirts. It’s basically an in-school field trip for everyone on staff.
Prom, graduation and senior superlatives are covered in a summer “Senior Supplement.” It’s a short, eight page book and we only print 900 copies of it for seniors to pick up in August.
4. Our newspaper and yearbook staffs definitely act like a mildly dysfunctional family. We share a room and help the newspaper way more than they help us as far as design and headlines go. Yearbook has also taken over the room decoration wise. We’re usually in there more than newspaper because we’re on constant deadline while they have a specific “crunch week.” In this last month’s newspaper issue, they named us the #1 “Most Influential” group in our school, so that was a really nice homage to everything that we attempt to do.
