As the year comes to a close, there are few events that mark the end of one chapter and the beginning of another such as prom, the paper drop and, of course, graduation. However, there is one significant item that creates an undeniable buzz throughout the school: yearbook distribution.
Yearbook distribution, a day early this year because of the rescheduling of Spring Fling due to a conflict with AP testing, will begin tomorrow in the concession area by the gym during A and B lunches for seniors and those who wish to purchase a book. Distribution will continue for the rest of the student body during Spring Fling at 2 p.m. Students can continue to pick up yearbooks during A and B lunches in the concession area through Friday. After Friday, books can be claimed in room 2244 during A or B lunch until finals week. At that point, books will be available from treasurer Ricki Hetherington.
An important change to distribution will be implemented this year. According to Hetherington, those who do not pay their fines prior to yearbook distribution will not be able to pick up their books until fines are paid. In addition, students will need to present a photo ID when claiming their books. For those who did not preorder books in the fall, a limited number of books will be on sale for $100. Extra signing sheets are also available for $1.
Along with the yearbook distribution, Student Council has planned the annual Spring Fling.
“The date of the Spring Fling was changed to Tuesday, May 10, due to the AP Statistics test that would have prevented many seniors from attending,” said Student Council member Nina Harstad, a senior.
The purpose of Spring Fling is to sign yearbooks, have fun and enjoy the last couple weeks of the school year.
“I’m excited to sign everyone’s yearbooks and have one last hurrah. I’ll be rejoicing in the memories of my last year at BHS,” senior Emily Hiller said.
The traditional Powder Puff game, which is typically played during the Spring Fling, will kick off on Tuesday at 2:30.
“The juniors are going down,” Hiller said.
