The Yearbook program we will be using is from a website called http://www.TreeRing.com.
Go ahead and check it out. This yearbook company is extremely flexible and customizable. It’s inexpensive (we’ll have a set cost for the Yearbook in a few weeks). It’s easy for non-Yearbook Club students to upload their photos. Students in Yearbook Club will be able to access more of the Yearbook, especially the layouts (pages) they are working on. If you’ve ever worked on an online photobook, like Shutterfly, you’ll see how similar it is to that process…just designed specifically for Yearbooks.

Everyone has a great idea for a story. Everyone wants to write a novel. Everyone thinks that being a writer would be the most delicious of all fates.
And then no one actually writes.
The truth is that there’s only one way to be a writer, and that is to write stuff. There’s only one way to become a good writer, too, and that’s to write more stuff. But the best writers edit, revise, and publish. That’s what this club does. Access real writing skill from professional authors and editors, and see your story in print.

Do you love art and can’t get enough of it? Do you want to take art class but can’t fit it into your schedule or it is not offered yet? Do you like to hang around the art people and do things with them? If the answer to any of these questions is “Yes,” you may be interested in joining the art club. It is open to any students enrolled in the Ensign Peak Academy Middle School or High School program.
The club activities will be student-driven with assistance and mentorship from the advisor. Suggested activities could include the following: group art projects; in-depth learning and work on individual art projects, virtual streaming (connected with phone, tablet or computer) field trips to art galleries, museums and studios, guest artist speakers, art discussions, community art service projects, and sponsoring an online art show periodically.
