Yearbook Class

  • Yearbook class is a great experience for students at Vina High School.  Staff members gain experience working with our community business by selling and creating advertisements.  They learn valuable design skills using an award winning computer yearbook design program.  They also gain experience taking photos and organizing and working picture days.  They build important life and career skills by planning and executing the creation of a wonderful book of memories for Vina students and their families to enjoy for years to come.  Juniors and sophomores interested in being a part of the yearbook staff in their junior and senior years should apply the first week of May. See Mrs. Swinney for an application.  

  • Why is a yearbook important?

    The yearbook chronicles what's most relevant to our students and allows them to physically have something to touch when visiting the books in the years to come.  Our goal is to not exclude any student from our pages.  If you have photos or information that you would like to submit to the yearbook, please email them to Patti Swinney, yearbook advisor (

    Senior Information

    Senior year is busy and full of exciting days.  Don't forget that there are important events for which to plan. 

    Senior Photos

    These take place at the beginning of the school year in August (check the school calendar for exact dates).
