Yearbooks to be issued this week

by Emily Hsiao, Online Managing Editor
The yearbook for the 2007-2008 school year will be distributed to seniors in the auditorium during both 5A and 5B tomorrow, May 28. Other Blazers who ordered copies will receive their yearbooks during lunch on Thursday, according to yearbook staff.

This year's theme for Silverlogue is "Anatomy of a Blazer." Yearbooks will be distributed to seniors on Wednesday.

Volume 79 of Silverlogue will be in full color with a unique "Anatomy of a Blazer" theme. For each class's title page, a Blazer is profiled like a medical patient, to represent the grade. There are various other anatomy-themed items spaced throughout the Silverlogue. "I think the yearbook this year is way better than last year," junior staff member Melissa Mergner said. "The fact that we did all this under so much pressure is impressive."

Students who still want to purchase yearbooks may do so from the concession stand across from the main office for $85, beginning on Thursday. Yearbooks will be sold during both lunches and after school until all the books have been sold, according to yearbook club sponsor Jacob Lee.

With yearbooks being given out during senior exams, students have complained about the late distribution, according to Mergner. "People are angry that they don't have as much time to get signatures," she said. The yearbook staff received their copies last week, but the rest of the yearbooks had to be sorted before being distributed. "The fact that we're distributing so late just couldn't be helped," she said.

Another factor in the yearbook's late distribution was the high number of students involved, resulting in two class periods, according to Silverlogue junior Caitlin Ludington. "This year was kind of hard because we had two classes and there were so many kids," she said.

    It takes yearbook staff nearly a week to organize the yearbooks? Really guys, that's no excuse.

    Whatever, better than last year when the seniors had to come back to get their yearbooks. Maybe next year the senior class will actually get their yearbooks in a reasonable time. (We can only hope)

    Sorting the yearbooks takes about a day or two but we only have access to the books when our sponsor is here. He wasn't able to be here since last Thursday and we received the books that Wednesday. Today was his first day back, meaning that yearbooks could finally start being sorted through. So no, it doesn't take a week and therefore that isn't our excuse. Even as a senior staffer I didn't get my book until today and understand how much it blows - but we're working as fast as we can with what we got. Not to mention the fact that we met every deadline and the company gave us last Wednes. as the delivery date. It's how it works, no matter how much it sucks.

    $85? That's ridiculous. There's no excuse for such an exorbitant price for a book.

    honestly.. there are much more important things going on in the world that deserve words like exorbitant or moronic or the time it takes to think to use them.

    uh... you can't really complain about the exorbitant price for the yearbook - it was only $65 when you had the opportunity to pre-order for like, what, 5 months? besides, if you check out other schools' yearbooks, they suck and cost a whole lot more...
    this year's is AWESOME

    Personally, I think the yearbook looks great from what I've seen. And you've got to consider the work they put into it. Remember that one year when all the staff names were out of order? I haven't heard a single complaint or about any major mistakes in this year's. Kudos to all the yearbook people, you guys did a great job!

    While I really like this year's yearbooks, I don't understand why there are so many spelling mistakes. Just a minor annorance.
