WOODBURY — Due to COVID-19 and winter rolling in, students and teachers have gone all digital to keep us all safe at Nonnewaug. How do hands-on classes now function?

The yearbook class is a prime example — students need to take photos and actually make the book. Yearbook advisor and teacher Genna Riggi explained how the club has gone all digital, photos and formatting alike.

Luckily, the yearbook class uses an online portal to create the yearbook, so as long as we are in our assigned roles and doing our work, the yearbook will be a complete product come spring,” Riggi said.

Photos require more of a group effort.

This year, we are asking for the community to help us with photo coverage and to share photos using our community upload option on yearbookforever.com,” Riggi said. “This can also be done using an app right from their phones. We also receive photos via social media, as well as our school photographer.”

The yearbook staff is focusing on students and staff to get pictures for the yearbook, basically making it a community project with the community giving the photos and the club formatting and laying out the photos in the yearbook.
