JOURNALISM: Yearbook “El Perrisito, The Legacy” & Newspaper “P-Town Press”

What is Yearbook?

Yearbook is a class and a club that lets students capture their high school memories and publish them in a professional-style publication. Students attend yearbook during 4th period as a regular class, and then work on the pages both inside and outside of class. Students take photographs of the school year, people, school events, etc. to then organize and publish it as the school yearbook.

What is Newspaper?

Newspaper is a class and a club as well which is in charge of the publication, The P-Town Press. The responsibilities and duties are much the same as in yearbook – in fact some of the article information and pictures are shared between the two. The newspaper articles cover events, activities and people in a more current perspective – much the same as a real newspaper.
