The Yearbook staff celebrates Yearbook Week


Natalia Nervi

This Monday, Jan. 28th, kicked off Yearbook Week, the annual school wide event that includes raffles, fundraisers and even a pretzel sale. The theme of this year’s yearbook, Beneath the Surface, was announced Monday, making a great start to an exciting week.  
If you saw someone with a balloon attached to their backpack Monday, they were most likely promoting the yearbook. The goal was to gain people’s attention and hopefully persuade them to purchase a yearbook this year.
On Tuesday, the yearbook staff was scheduled to sell concessions at the wrestling match, but unfortunately it was cancelled. Wednesday, there will be a fundraiser at Juice House in Garwood from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm. Flyers are located at the front desk of the main office.
Friday there will be a pretzel sale after school by the front and side entrance, ending the week with some delicious soft treats courtesy of the Philly Pretzel Factory. There will also be an announcement at all lunches to encourage you to buy your yearbook. This week only, yearbooks will be marked down to just $90, and everyone who buys one will be entered in a raffles to win free prom tickets.
Corinne Lyght, sophomore and member of the business team, has high expectations for the week and hopes to increase sales.
“The purpose of Yearbook Week is to promote the yearbook and really get the word out. There are many giveaways, including the free prom tickets, which will hopefully help gain lots of interest among students,” Lyght said.
Why should you get your yearbook? Lyght says it’s all about the memories.
“You should buy a yearbook to remember the 2018-2019 school year and all the memories you made!” Lyght said.
