The Towers Yearbook has been a tradition since the founding of the school.
Each year students build the book from cover to cover. Everything is student produced in the book. The staff spends time early in the year not only learning the ins and outs of design, copy writing, photography, caption writing, and interviewing, but they develop a theme that guides everything for the year. Class time is spent in those early weeks understanding the importance of theme and designing the cover and interior layouts. After the staff has a general comfort level in all things yearbook, more independent study and work begins. The students work together on various spreads throughout the year and are responsible for meeting deadlines given by both the moderator and the yearbook company.
Editors are assigned based on level of ability as well as seniority. The chosen editors work to motivate staffers throughout the year and proofread, edit, and revise everything before it is handed off to the moderator for approval and submission. They work more closely with the moderator on overall design and layout and develop the theme more specifically so that it can be carried throughout the book in an easy to understand and appealing way.
The annual edition of 'Towers' is distributed in May with a spring supplement arriving in the fall of the following school year.
Yearbook Design is a course offered to sophomores, juniors, and seniors. It is offered as a double period, every other day of the cycle.
