On December 19th, Student Council Historical Commission (SCHC) hosted a new yearbook event in room A211. SCHC gathered all the AHS yearbooks (1952-2013) from the library and placed them in A211 for display. We invited staff members by putting a written document of the event on the staff bulletin. Pow-wow members and Yearbook club members were invited and we personally invited the administrators with personal greeting cards. The event went smoothly and many students and staff members showed up as the school day progressed. SCHC ended the yearbook event after school and we were able to quickly sort the books and put them away. In the near future, hopefully second semester, SCHC will be hosting a yearbook event for all the past middle school yearbooks (Dana Middle School, First Avenue Middle School, Foothills Middle School, etc.). Many of the students that went to the yearbook event requested for a middle school yearbook event.
