Those who did not wear an ugly Christmas sweater have said that it was fun to watch all the wacky concoctions of different sweaters that were worn.
If you’re thinking of ordering a yearbook, it’s a great time to do so - remember, the price of yearbooks will increase from $50 to $60 after Christmas. A deposit of $10 is all that is required to reserve a book. Also, yearbooks can be personalized for an additional $5. The total balance can be paid at a later date or at time of pick-up. There are a limited number of yearbooks that will be ordered, so buy now to avoid being disappointed.
