Plenty of smiles at yearbook picture day


Say cheese.

There were a lot of grins in the Henry Tift Fine Arts Auditorium on Wednesday and Thursday, Sept. 8-9. It was Picture Day for the yearbook.

Beginners through 11th grade took the classic individual yearbook photo with a blue background. Since seniors do not take the traditional photo on picture day, they got to participate in senior funny face pictures. 

The yearbook staff must keep things organized in order to produce a successful yearbook. They do this by attaching a card to the right corner of the picture packet so that every name is matched with the correct picture. This allows for a smooth process throughout both days.

According to yearbook staff member Emily Hutchinson, 10th and 11th grade are the easiest grades to take photos of because they “know how to get in and out of the auditorium.” 

“Senior funny faces are so hectic because of all of the giggles from students and having to keep up with their signs,’’ Emily said.

Yearbook staff member Peyton Lovett disagreed.

“The beginners are the worst because they do not know how to stand still,’’ she said.

The yearbook dedication assembly will take place on April 21, 2022, and it will be released on May 20, 2022 following the Honors Day assembly.
