Students create a one-of-a-kind yearbook. All students write, design, layout, organize, illustrate, photograph, and produce a 208-page book of memories for the entire school community. Las Olas, the HMBHS Yearbook, is for all students and presents as many different events and activities as possible, making it an important part of the school experience. Participation in Yearbook demands responsibility, talent, time, organizational skills, the ability to work well with others, and the ability to meet deadlines. Many students focus on one major facet of production such as photography, layout and design, writing and reporting, or computer design. Computer experience is very helpful, as the layouts and designs will all be done with in Design and Adobe Photoshop. The instructor considers a limited selection of students.
