School yearbooks have been around for centuries and have been a way for graduated high school students to look back on their past friends, clubs they participated in, and memories. The concept of yearbooks first originated in about the 17th century, and they were nothing more than a small notebook filled with students and teachers’ signatures. The concept of adding photographs into yearbooks didn’t begin until about the mid- 19th century, as stated by, a website that specializes in family connections and finding ancestors.

Yearbooks can prove to be a very sentimental tool and resource for high school graduates to look back into their high school years and reminisce on old memories. Yearbooks can also provide a resource to see how things have changed and adapted throughout time. For example, colored photos and images didn’t make their way into yearbooks until about the 1960’s, and the addition of senior quotes is also relatively new as well, as stated by, a website dedicated to diving into history and facts of a variety of subjects.

Many Rocky students look forward to being able to look back on their old friends, photos, and memories that have been captured in their yearbook. If you are an underclassman who is undecided about purchasing a yearbook, it is recommended you purchase one within your remaining years spent at Rocky. Many seniors warn against not purchasing a yearbook and claim to regret not ordering a yearbook throughout high school.

Anonymous senior Rocky student states “I really should have bought one! I thought I wouldn’t care to look back on old memories but throughout my senior year I lots of friends, and it probably would be nice to be able to look back on old memories and remember all the fun I had.”

When asked if they had any advice, Olivia Bierman, graduated senior from Rocky states “I definitely recommend getting the yearbook, if you don’t you might regret it and you never know how much you will miss high school until you graduate.”

Show your support for Rocky yearbook by attending the yearbook distribution party on May. 10 during lunch and advisory outside under the skybridge and for more information and details follow Rocky Mountain High School’s yearbook page rocky.ybk.
