IT'S DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!

8 p.m. Wednesday night. We're done.

THE BIGGEST PROJECT IN ANNA'S LIFE (SO FAR) IS COMPLETE! Anna is the yearbook Editor-in-Chief for her 3,241 person school. As an 11th grader this is almost unheard of. It has been a HUGE challenge for Anna. She had a new teacher that knew nothing about putting together a yearbook, Anna had to teach her.

And then... (here is my big beef about public school) budget cuts decimated the elective classes and they just dumped kids in the Journalism class who not only didn't want to be there, but were angry about it. Needless to say this hindered Anna and her small group of serious staff members in a big way. The class started out with 32 people and ended with 25, out of this 25 Anna had about 7 people that helped her.

This was the week of her deadline. Anna, her teacher, and her two most faithful staffers were at school until 8:00 p.m. (Last week it was 6:00 p.m.) All of this going on while Anna was holding down 1 AP class and 3 Honors classes.

I have seen the book on computer and it is a work of art. I can truly say that Anna put her heart and soul into this endeavor. Hope you get to see it, you will be amazed!
