The theme of the 2020-2021 yearbook is Behind the Scenes of a Hollywood red carpet, and the yearbook team aims to include each and every student in it.

Senior Maddie Meilinger also noted her excitement for the publication of the yearbook regardless of the circumstances.

“The staff is excited about the ideas for this year’s coming copy,” she said.

This year’s yearbook is looking a little different than previous years, nonetheless it will still have the same heart and Bruin spirit.

The yearbook staff has been collaborating via zoom meetings. Once a week, they have a mandatory editorial meeting where the staff strategizes and figures out what is incomplete as well as brainstorming. 

Since the class is hybrid, and full distance learning yearbook has been challenged on finding a new system of getting photos.

Junior Dayanara Moreno Jurado, chief editor of the yearbook, had spoke on the difficulty of getting art in light of COVID.

“[S]ince the start of distance learning, [it] has been difficult getting photos.” 

The student’s interview and process of events and receiving images have been a challenge for Moreno Jurado and the rest of the yearbook staff, however they have found ways to make progress. Two ways the yearbook staff can get photos of students if they are unable to come to the picture days is by either sending photos in or finding a photo of them from a social media source, such as Instagram.  Students’ photos are also taking a bit longer to process, unlike previous years due to the complications the coronavirus has placed upon our daily high school experiences. 

Because of the lack of sports games and activities, writers like Senior Maddie Pratt have been challenged on finding things to incorporate in the yearbook, but they are embracing the difficulties and innovating.

“[T]hey are working on fun and creative ideas to fill in the missing sports and events,” she said. 

As a whole, the writing staff of the yearbook has two different parts of the yearbook that must be done. Moreno Jurado commented on the staffs’ speedy headway on the one half of the yearbook.

“We have two different sections that we as writers need to complete, Sports and Life, and since we haven’t had any sports seasons, we have completed almost every Life article that needs to be written.”

Due to it being her second year in the yearbook, Dayanara knows a thing or two and is excited about this year’s new theme. Even though the global pandemic is detaining many events and affecting Bruins’ daily life, the entirety of the yearbook staff is working hard to make it a memorable yearbook like many years past. 

Moreno Jurado explained that gaining access to quotes is different this year and commented on how excited the staff in spite of the hinderances they face.

“[I’m] used to being able to interview students and staff in person,” she said. “Interviews via email are a little difficult since not everyone regularly checks their email. As a whole, this year’s yearbook will happen without a doubt. The entirety of the staff is confident with themselves and each other. The staff is eager for their hard work to pay off and reveal this year’s coming copy.”
