Bednarcik Yearbook Club Information

  • Do you like to design things?  Do you enjoy writing?  Are you a “shutterbug?” Are you available Monday afternoons and/or Wednesday mornings?  If you answered “yes,” then you should apply to be on the yearbook staff!

    The yearbook staff will meet on Wednesdays before school, from 7:15-8:00 am and on Mondays after school from 3:15-4:30 pm.  Meetings are in Ms. Truemper's classroom, 2111F.

    Approaching deadlines may require additional meetings.   Students are also expected to work outside of meeting times taking pictures and creating pages as assigned.  We need students with strong writing skills and photography experience is a plus!  We also look for students who are extremely dependable and able to work independently.
