Seniors smile for yearbook pictures

by Jasmine Tejada, staff reporter

On Thursday February 5th, seniors boys line up and wait to be provided with caps and gowns in WJPS colors for the 2015 yearbook.   “We wanted kids to be able to take their own pictures on their leisure time. Maybe girls get their hair blown out and their makeup done. Worst case scenario if you don’t like your picture there is always March 9th- which is picture day retake,” Ms. Reed said.  Since the photos were taken during the school day students had to return to class once finished.

Once again high school seniors gather together and are full of enthusiasm to have taken their high school senior yearbook pictures. On Thursday February 5th, seniors took over the school auditorium platform for Senior Picture Day.

Seniors were expected to arrive to school in uniform, and photographers were very welcoming.

“The photographers were very cooperative. All that’s left is to hope my photo came out alright,” senior Cara Seigel said.

While waiting to take their pictures, seniors had to wait on line and hand in an envelope with their $10 sitting fee.

“The reason there is a sitting fee is because the Class Act took so many poses, since its a memory picture… Now there is also a trend in other schools where seniors submit their own photos for the yearbook. Students just have to send in a picture with a certain quality,” parent coordinator Ms. Reed said.

To make the day less chaotic, boys were expected to go first at 8:00 am to 9:00 am in alphabetical order. Boys came in a white collared shirt and had to wear a white tuxedo shirt over.

Although the clip on ties for the boys kept them a little longer, girls still finished on time despite the several wardrobe changes they experienced.

“This picture is important because it’s somewhere I can go to remember. I can look back on elementary, middle, and high school and see how I’ve change,” senior Rachel Yacono said.

In five, 10, even in 20 years from now, students can look back at their memories in high school in their yearbooks which are released at the end of June.
