This morning during homeroom, I met with Andrew Britten and discussed the possibility of including senior quotes under your portrait for the yearbook.
First and foremost, I love the idea of senior quotes. I think they are a great personal touch to the senior section of the book. With that being said (and I’m sure all of you know this), a considerable number of seniors have three main objectives when it comes to submitting senior quotes:
-Sneak something inappropriate into their quote only to be discovered after publication
-Be funny or pessimistic about their high school experience or Kenston High School
-Pick a quote that is socially, morally, or politically controversial
For this reason, yearbook advisers oftentimes avoid senior quotes for the potential problems they may cause. If the yearbook staff leaves a questionable quote in the book or takes a quote out of the book, our high school publication faces scrutiny and possible repercussions with administration, parents, and the community. These kinds of stories end up on the news every year.
Despite this, I have made a deal with Andrew that gives your class the opportunity to have senior quotes. You must meet the following requirements with NO EXCEPTIONS:
240 senior quotes must be collected by December 21st at 12:15 pm (last day before winter break). Layouts need to be created for these pages, and we cannot wait several months for quotes to be collected. If we do not meet this number (which is roughly 90% of your class) by the deadline, we will not include senior quotes. Any lower number than 240 leaves too many blank boxes on the pages and it does not look good.
No quotes can be controversial, inappropriately humorous, or unfitting for a statement that exemplifies your “personal philosophy”: basically anything that you would see on a “funny yearbook quote” Youtube video. The yearbook staff will not have the added responsibility of vetting out which quotes are acceptable and which are not. If I read through the quotes in the Google Form responses and find a single one that can be considered inappropriate, we will scrap the opportunity. This will be your responsibility as a class to handle before I receive the responses; if any students plans to do this, advise them to simply not fill out the form.
I like the class of 2019 a lot, which is why I am even considering this as an option. Show the Kenstonian staff you are capable of doing this! Good luck!
