Don’t turn the page without buying a yearbook.

Bear River’s Yearbook staff has created a great product, but are anxious to meet their sales goal for the 2016-2017 school year. According to Yearbook Advisor Christina Levinson, the school is scheduled to receive 500 yearbooks. To date, 302 sales have been processed.

Mrs. Levinson expressed her hopes for yearbook sales.

“I would love to be 100 percent of our sales goal,” she said. “I would love to sell a good 200 more books. That would make me very happy.”

Yearbook officials praised their hard-working staff.

“Our whole staff has put a lot into it,” said Yearbook Editor-in-Chief Alyssa Pulkinghorn, a senior.

“Yearbook just did a phenomenal job this year,” said Mrs. Levinson. “They worked really hard and I drove them really hard and they just took it. I’m really proud of them. The product is stellar.”

Staff voiced their confidence about the yearbook.

“The yearbook is gonna be a lot better than it was last year,” said Yearbook’s People Editor Taylor Krogman, a senior.

“Out of all the four years I’ve been here, this will be the best yearbook,” said Yearbook’s Life Editor Rebecca Van Patten, a senior. “Maybe even the best we will ever have.”

“It’s going to be the best one we’ve had in years,” said Pulkinghorn.

“This year’s book is awesome,” said Mrs. Levinson. “This yearbook is the best yearbook in four years, for sure.”

The Yearbook staff shared how this year’s book compares to previous editions.

“I think the past one’s were lacking detail,” said Van Patten. “The yearbook is going to highlight your year and I think we did a good job at showing people’s achievements. It’s unique and pretty.”

“I think it looks really good,” said Pulkinghorn. “It’s gonna have a lot of different content. It’s going to be a lot cleaner, better quality, and an all-around better book.”

“It’s way better designed, more organized, and smooth,” said Krogman. “It works well together. It’s not just thrown together. It’s planned out.”

“I would say previous yearbooks were a little sloppy,” said Mrs. Levinson. “There were mistakes, and the student body was disproportionately covered in the yearbook. You had the same group of kids through the whole book, so there wasn’t a very good range of coverage. However, this year we really concentrated on covering the school equally and fairly. Every single part of the school has been covered and it’s really diverse and fair. You are going to see every corner of the school.”

The staff expressed their opinions on why Bruins should buy the yearbook.

“You only get four years and things are different every year,” said Van Patten. “These are things you’ll want to look back on.”

“I think it’s gonna be a really good yearbook and everyone should get one,” said Krogman. “Don’t not buy this book because you didn’t like last years; it’s totally different.”

“If you’re a senior, get it,” said Pulkinghorn.“We had a lot of coverage so if you’re worried about being in it, you’re in it. You don’t want to miss out on great memories.”

“You should buy it because a yearbook is forever, even in this digital age,” said Mrs. Levinson. “People don’t throw away their high school yearbook. Yes, you have Instagram and all these social media platforms that you can get photos from, but what happens with age, you delete those pictures and you lose your phone. Those images are not forever. A yearbook is forever because it lives on your bookshelf. When you’re 40 years old, you are not going to be able to access your high school Instagram; it’s gonna be gone. Your yearbook is going be there and that’s the purpose it serves.”
