Attention Rising 8th Grade Students – Yearbook Applications
A yearbook is the ultimate practice in teamwork. It takes an entire class to create the memories within it and it’ll take an entire team to finish it. If you are interested in being on the Yearbook staff for the 2020-2021 school year, please complete the attached Yearbook application and email to email@example.com no later than June 15, 2020.
