To celebrate national yearbook week, the yearbook staff is running a a daily trivia contest. Everyday this week we will read a trivia question for any high school student to answer. To receive the daily prize, the winning student must take a selfie with the answer to the trivia question and then show the selfie to Mr. Curtis. There will be one winner everyday. And then on Friday, the yearbook editors will draw four names from all the students who have already bought a 2019 yearbook. Any junior high or high school student who has bought a yearbook is eligible to win. If you haven’t bought a yearbook yet, you have until Friday morning to buy one and become eligible. A list of students who have bought a yearbook is posted outside of Mr. Curtis’s classroom. Ok. Are you ready? Here is today’s trivia question: this LJSHS staff member first appeared in the Leopard yearbook in 1995? Who is it? Today’s winner was L. Sneath who figured out the 1995 yearbook would have been Mrs. Curtis’s (Ms. Harrell) first year teaching in Lincoln
