Yearbook and Journalism
The Yearbook Club is charged with recording and publishing a chronicle of the school year by producing the Jefferson Prep yearbook. Yearbook activities begin in the fall with the election of the Executive Board Officers: Editor-in-Chief, Copy Editor, Design Editor, and a Photography Editor. Students in grades 9-12 who are interested in journalism, photography and/ or graphic design are encouraged to take the class to be a member of the staff. Student Government is responsible for developing a yearbook theme, while the Yearbook/Journalism class will determine layout of the yearbook, photo content and composition, copy writing, setting up page design with the publishers online program, meeting strict deadlines, ad sales and marketing and distribution of the book. This class is also responsible for the publication of the monthly school newspaper, The Guardian Gazette. Involvement in the Yearbook/Journalism class offers students the opportunity to gain life skills, assume the responsibilities of working with clients and deadlines and have fun working as a team at the same time.
