IMS Students Celebrate School Memories With Yearbook

Irvington Middle School students reminisced about the school year and celebrated their memories with friends and classmates when they received copies of the 2024 yearbook, Riverview, on June 11.

During the festive yearbook distribution event, members of the Yearbook Club distributed more than 285 copies to middle school students and staff in the campus quad. Under the leadership of club advisor Amy Panitz, the book is a compilation of photographs, stories and memories from the 2023-2024 school year.

This yearbook’s theme is “A to Z Amazing,” covering everything that makes IMS a special place – from “Dynamic Days in Washington, D.C.” to “Good Friends Are Hard to Find” to “Who’s That Baby: 8th Grade Edition,” and everything in between. It also features a page dedicated to the retiring teachers and staff, including Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kristopher Harrison, as well as a feature called “Questions, Quotes and Quality” in which IMS teachers and staff were interviewed and asked about their favorite school event. In addition, it features a two-page spread dedicated to “Lunch, Labs and Learning,” which are some of the students’ favorite things at the middle school.

“I am especially proud of the Yearbook Club members,” Panitz said. “Together, we set goals at the start of this year, and we met, if not exceeded, them. We pledged to be true to our chosen theme, add copy to the pages to help tell the story, and host the best Yearbook Distribution Day. These students are creative, hardworking and unrelenting, often coming to two club meetings each week in order to meet our deadlines throughout the year. IMS Yearbook Club staff members worked hard to create a wonderful keepsake for the entire school community.”

Assistant Principal Allyson Daley described this year's yearbook as gorgeous, engaging, captivating and aesthetically pleasing.
