For Fluvanna County High School underclassmen, the wait to get their 2012 yearbooks will end sooner than they thought. Originally slated to be handed out the second week of school, yearbooks will now be available for pick up and purchase at the high school’s Back to School Open House on Wednesday (August 8).
“To make sure they got them before heading off to college, we allowed seniors to pick up their books starting July 24, and the word on the book has been extremely positive,” said Yearbook Adviser Elizabeth Pellicane. “Now we’re excited to see the reaction of the underclassmen to the book,” she added.
The theme ‘More Than Just a Number’ highlights the fact that every Fluco is unique and has a story to tell. To reflect that theme, the yearbook team created a design that allowed them to triple the number of photos in the book so that more students are pictured than ever before.
In the past, FCHS yearbooks were always printed and distributed in the spring. This year, however, the yearbook team decided to switch to an annual book that was printed in the summer and distributed in the fall. “It’s our first ‘annual’ yearbook ever, covering the first day of school all the way through graduation. Students will finally get to see spring events--like spring sports, spring plays, the prom, and graduation – covered in the yearbook,” Pellicane said.
During the Aug. 8 Back to School Open House, students who pre-ordered 2012 books will be able to pick them up at the Attendance Office near the front entrance of the new high school. Back to School day hours are from noon to 4 p.m. and 5 pm to 8 p.m. Students who have not already ordered a book will be able to purchase one for $70.
Those wanting to get a jump on 2013 will also be able to pre-order 2013 yearbooks that day for a special discounted rate of $65.
Students who are unable to come to the Back to School event will be able to pick up or purchase a 2012 or 2013 book once school starts on Aug. 13.
