    Would you like to have front row seats to our school events and activities (and have an incredible resume builder?)

    Joining the Yearbook Staff is an experience like no other! We work hard, but we play hard too- and staffers have the opportunity to work behind the scenes to make sure our yearbook tells the story of our entire community.

    **Underclassmen welcome, and no experience needed! ** We will teach the skills you need- you just bring your energy and strong work ethic.

    Most of our work happens in class, but there will be some outside of school commitments (photographing events, minimum 1x per season)

    Yearbook is a credit bearing course at PVM, and can be taken multiple years for credit. We love our Seniors, but we're huge fans of our underclassmen staff too! It's really awesome to grow with us a second (or third!) year.
    **If this sounds like something you might be interested in- email us at **
