Everyone knows the value of a great picture. It can bring repetitive fond memories and even great laughs.
Teenagers seem to find this a challenge when taking pictures and excel in their creativity in doing so.
Because of all the changes, this school year has caused because of COVID-19 and many students schooling by internet, Sierra Frazier is requesting participation from the community in obtaining “cool” pictures for the 2020 – 2021 Yearbook for students in grades six through 12. Frazier is the Craig County High School Art Teacher. She is also the middle and high school yearbook adviser.
“To our Craig County Middle and High School Community, the yearbook staff needs your help,” she shared. “This year’s yearbook will be one for the history books. In 20, 30, 40 plus years, this will be the yearbook our students will want to pick up and show their children.”
The yearbook staff invites students and parents to submit photos for the yearbook.
If people have great photos of school and community events or their friends just having fun, they are encouraged to share them for the yearbook.
Frazier added that although it will be a unique challenge to capture, “the story of the year and the cool pics of the students in our school, we are excited to get started.”
Hopes are to also get a few “stories” to go along with photos, to complete the photos submitted.
“Our photographers can’t be everywhere. Help us get as many photos as possible to create a terrific book everyone will want to have,” Frazier noted. “That’s where you come in. Parents, students and members of our community can all be a part of the yearbook this year.”
People may upload photos by sending an email to [email protected].
The website to make senior ads and business ads is jostensadservice.com. Business ads are as low as $25.00.
“We are calling all proud parents to celebrate your student’s journey with a yearbook ad,” shared Frazier who added they can be made in three easy payments. Ad breakdowns are as follows: full page ($150.00), half page ($100,00) and quarter page ($50.00). Color business ads are as follows: full page ($100.00), half page ($75.00), quarter page ($50.00) and the one-eighth page ($25.00).
She added, “Showcase your business in the book that never loses its appeal. Students and their families will flip through the pages of the yearbook hundreds of times and cherish it for a lifetime. We appreciate your support.”
Proceeds from ad sales are a fundraiser for the yearbook program.
