The yearbook staff worked after school Tuesday, Aug. 26, will work in class, and more days after school to carve holes in the front of the book.

Senior and photo editor of the yearbook staff Elizabeth Reiher was there working with about ten other staff members to get the job done. “We’re cutting the holes in the front because it will really add to the overall theme and design,” Reiher said.

There are a total of 65 boxes of yearbooks, and there are 16 yearbooks in each box.

“There are a ton of books yet to get done,” Reiher said. “It took us about two hours to get 27 boxes done, and there are 38 left.” Reiher estimates that it will take about two-and-a-half more hours to finish them all.

In order to save time and money on the books, the staff is doing work that would have originally been done by the company which would have cost an extra amount to accomplish. The staff has done this in previous years; either carving out a hole in the cover, or gluing pennies onto the front of the cover.

The staff members are also assigned shifts during the days of distribution to be in charge of the tables before school, after school, and during lunch.

“We were hoping to get [the books] out by Thursday, but that won’t happen now with how long it’s taking us,” Reiher said. “We think we will be able to get them out by Tuesday, but it all depends.”
