Yearbook News

The Yearbook Staff would like to share some exciting news with you regarding the 2020-2021 yearbook. Guess what? You are officially on the yearbook staff! Yes, you read that right! This year, more than ever, we ask that parents and students join us in helping to create the book. 

What are some ways you could help us achieve this task? Consider:

  • Send us pictures (questions and stories) to hsyearbook@jajags.com or jhyearbook@jajags.com 
  • When you see an email from the yearbook, open it! Complete the form requesting information and pictures! Easy
  • Capture CANDID moments and send them to us. 
  • Student organizations deserve some love: help us gather memories of Zoom meetings or virtual events.
  • Calling all athletes: we are talking about school sports or extracurricular sports. Share your stories and photos!
  • Participating in a team-building experience involving a phone app? Tell us!
  • Take photos of ANYTHING that happens in your life that connects back to our school, whether virtually or in-person.
  • We want to feature any students who are doing something awesome. Suzie is getting her pilot’s license? Johnny was accepted to a really cool program for Latin? Email us!

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 purchase your copy at www.jostensyearbooks.com
