The Tiger Tale Yearbook is an annual publication created by the students for the student body and community. It circulates to roughly four hundred of our district population yearly. The publication has won numerous awards in the last twelve years from the state to the national level. We also induct students to the Quill and Scroll International Honorary Society for High School Journalist each year.
The curriculum is offered 1st period of the school day and is an intensive program requiring journalistic writing and interviewing, photography and editing, as well as page design and publishing. This yearlong course enrolls Junior and Senior students only and requires a B average in regular English courses. Good daily attendance and availability in ‘out of school’ times is a must. It is also recommended that students who plan to enroll in yearbook take one of the available photography or digital imaging courses as prerequisites.
Planning for the next school year begins in April. Regular weekly meetings in the months of April and May help us to plan theme and also to give students the opportunity to run for officer positions. Anyone interested in becoming an officer or editor for the staff must fill out an application and get two teacher recommendations. We hold a three day summer camp in the month of August where we finalize theme, work on photography of sports and band events, and get to know each other.
Our books arrive in August, fully bound from the first day of school through graduation of each school year. Graduates pick up their books prior to the start of school. Underclassmen pick them up the first week of school during school wide distribution.
