High school yearbooks


    Yearbooks are put together by a student

    committee with the help of faculty and staff. The committee has editors, who collect and put

    together the information and contributions (贡献).

    Yearbooks include summaries of (总结) the years

    activities, student art, photos of the student body,

    articles written by students and faculty, interesting personal information about graduates, and


    Yearbooks are distributed at the end of a school

    year. Sometimes, a supplemental (多余的) insert

    with photographs from spring sports events is also published (出版).

They often also cover milestone (important)

    events such as prom and graduation.


     Prom is the fancy/red carpet formal party at the

    end of high school where students dress up and bring a date, who is usually a classmate.

    years later. People change. Can you recognize these celebrities from their high school photos?
