2020 Goethe eYearbook
Covid-19 impacted every aspect of our lives this year including the Yearbook Club's ability to document the school year as planned. Unfortunately the full 2020 Yearbook will NOT be printed. However, the yearbook teacher sponsors and volunteers felt it was important to showcase the work the Yearbook Club students put in prior to Covid-19. They also wanted to give the graduating 8th grade class something to remember this unprecedented and challenging year.
A few pivots and volunteer commitment, resulted in an eYearbook which includes pages the Yearbook Club finished, the student developed design, coverage of the Covid-19 experience, 8th grade experiences and 8th grade portraits. Portraits for Pre-K through 7th grade were sadly not able to be included because a significant number of student portraits were missing due to retake day being cancelled.
Prior to remote learning the club, made up of 25 students, met once a week for 2 hours. The students were broken up into 4 teams and each student was assigned a job - photographer, designer, writer, marketer. This format allowed the students focus on a specific media arts skill set. The teams collaborated to develop a name, the theme design, and story topics for each page of the book. By March 12th, they had completed 14 of the 80 pages in the yearbook.
This year the Yearbook Club goals were:
To cover the Goethe experience from the students point of view
Capture all students attending Goethe in the yearbook at least once
Give students the opportunity to learn Technology and Art, STEAM skills, through a real life project
Provide a learning opportunity from practitioners in the fields of photography, design, and marketing.
While this Yearbook is far from what we dreamed it would be, we are proud of the work that was able to be completed and hope you enjoy it. If you have questions please feel free to email the Yearbook parent volunteer, Angie May Yarusso at email@example.com.
The eYearbook will be available online to view until September 30, 2020. Save this url to view on desktop or mobile devices. After this date the eYearbook will not be available for viewing or downloads.
