If students are unsure as to whether or not they already purchased a yearbook, they can also check here. The yearbook costs $50, and students can pay cash or a check made out to RB Flashback.
Flashback staff member Olivia Sowers said this year’s theme, “Own It,” is special for all students.
“We really feel like this is a significant theme to reflect the students of RB[HS] because we have over fifteen hundred kids in our school that each have their own unique story.” Sowers, a junior, said. “I think [it] is important to let them share their stories.”
The yearbook’s personal impact is not just notable for this year; rather, junior Bryce Rauba buys a yearbook every year, and they he says all have the same effect.
“I enjoy being able to see the way I change over the years, and looking through the different stats and quotes through the years is very interesting, as it shows what the culture was like in those particular years,” Rauba said. “It’s also funny to be able and go back to look at people that you now know [during their] freshman and sophomore year.”
