Breaking The .Ice
It's a theme that didn't come easily to the Yearbook Staff. Breaking the ice. It is something hard for everyone. A new school with new people, and many obstacles to face before developing friendships. Everyone is different, some are shy, some are not, but all of us have the same problem how to break the ice.

A: The best part of the job is interacting with the students because of all the different personalities and fun things they do.
