Work began this week on the 2019-2020 edition of The Impact yearbook. Ana Sofía Navarro, Audrey Mills, Tatum Moore, Emma Hicks, Katherine Echols, Claire Achterkirch, Cayden Tate and Bethany Hotchkiss met with Advisor Kelly Galbreath for a summer workshop planning session. They brainstormed ideas for coverage, decided on the title and theme for the 2020 book and created the cover art. If interested in joining the Cypress Christian Yearbook Staff, applications are still being accepted. Please contact Kelly Galbreath at Kelly.Galbreath@CypressChristian.org for more information.
A big thank you goes out to the yearbook staff as they put in many extra hours during the week, on the weekends and in the summer each year in order to create the best yearbook possible. Yearbook is much more than a scrapbook. Yearbook students use 21st-century skills of technology including photo-editing software and Adobe InDesign to digitally produce a yearbook while using writing skills, communication skills and creativity to tell the story of the Cypress Christian School community in an engaging way. The staff demonstrates knowledge of graphic design and creative thinking when organizing information within the yearbook. Critical thinking is used to meet deadlines, track goals and utilize multimedia to market and disseminate information that aligns with and models an actual business. Yearbook students use all of their academic skills in a real-world context that will benefit them for success in college and beyond.
