After four nine weeks of work, the yearbook plans to release its 2017 issue this week at lunch.

Juniors and seniors can pick theirs up during lunch on Wednesday, May 18. Freshmen and sophomores may do the same the next day. The distribution tables will be set up in Cafeteria A.

Students are required to bring some form of identification with them to the distribution tables. School-issued IDs are prefered, but other credentials may be valid as well.

Slips of paper reminding students that they ordered a book were delivered last week to fifth period classes. Students who did not receive such a form but believe they ordered a yearbook can visit the guidance office for assistance.

Those who did not order a copy earlier in the year can still purchase extra copies, which will be for sale for $75 on Friday, May 19.

For members of the yearbook, the release comes as a relief.

“It feels great great that the books are finally being distributed because it’s like a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders,” senior and business manager for the yearbook, Tamera Sims, said.

Sims is in charge of the publication’s logistics. She looks back on her final year in the book with pride.

“I also had to promote sales,” Sims said. “It finally paid off because now we have sold over 1700 books out of 1900.”
