All year, West High students both online and in-person have been working hard to put together the 2020-2021 yearbook. It was finished on April 2 and will be available for pre-purchase until Thursday, May 20, through jostens.com.

“I can’t believe we were able to pull together such an amazing book in a year where nothing was normal! Me, Nicole, and all the staff members worked so hard and I really think it is even better than I could have ever imagined! I’m super proud of this book, and I can’t wait for everyone to get it and read it, because this is a time in history that is super memorable and I will remember forever,” said Cameron Reimers ’21, yearbook Co-Editor In Chief.

On Thursday, May 27, students online or in-person can pick up a yearbook outside the main gym from 11:35-1 p.m. There will be a limited number for sale for those who have not bought one ahead of time, as well as tables and markers to sign yearbooks in-person. You can also sign yearbooks virtually, by creating an account on jostens.yearbook.com. This site will allow you to create a URL you can send to friends to sign or leave messages, which you will be able to download and print. 

There will also be a drive-by pick-up on Wednesday, June 2, outside West High from 12:30-2 p.m. 

If you are unable to make it to these two times, you will also be able to pick up a yearbook in room 115 any time between 8:35 a.m. and 4 p.m. from May 28 to June 11.

“Distribution day for the yearbook is one of my favorite days out of the year,” said Nicole Trout ’21, yearbook Co-Editor in Chief, “It is such an amazing feeling to hand everyone their books knowing that we captured all of the memories throughout the year for the school.”
