Apollo Yearbook Information
Yes, we will have a 2021 Yearbook. Yes, it will be different.
This year our student staff did their very best to create a book that you will love. Like just about everything, this year’s Apollo Yearbook will be different from any other year. I believe that it is best described as a time capsule, capturing moments and memories from this extraordinary year. You will find stories of community service, of zoom, of masks, of voting and protesting, art and poetry, baby ads, sports and more. You won’t find staff photos, or team photos, and maybe not even school photos if you missed preview days; we couldn’t cover everything, but each story matters. We know that beautiful, meaningful things happened and we couldn’t be there. Our staff had to be very creative in how to find and cover stories from their homes and isolation.
Most years we meet very strict deadlines to get the books delivered before seniors leave; this schedule has a final deadline for submitting pages in the first week of April. As you might remember, it was around this time that sports actually began and we learned that hybrid and other activities would start up. It proved impossible to meat that deadline with a new group of students 2nd semester, and felt essential to try to capture the life lived in the past two months. So, our 2021 books will be arriving in mid-July. Honestly, creating a book under the circumstances of this year is somewhat of a miracle on its own. Publishing over 1000 hard cover 200+ page books, takes the publishing plant time, and this is what they are able to do. So, we will have a distribution as soon as they arrive, and again at preview days. I, Ellie Rozendaal, will also be able to offer individual pick-ups from my house in Oak Hills. If your family moves before July, we will ship the book to you.
If cost is a barrier this year, email for a scholarship, no questions asked.
Considering the unusual and unpredictable nature of the 2020-2021 school year, we will need your help more than ever before. Please share any story ideas you might have with us at . What are Sunset students doing to get through, to have fun, to make the world a better place?
The Apollo Yearbook is ever so happy to accept your personal submissions for inclusion in the 2020-2021
Yearbook. Share your life: doing "school," with your pets, adventures, covid safe fun, friendship, etc. It can be done through an app (Yearbook Snap) or website (yearbooksforever.com).
Did you miss picture day this past August? We want you in the yearbook of course. You matter. Please use the button above for instructions on how to submit. The deadline is January 31st for portraits. Check the documents below to ensure your picture is in the book (as of Jan. 8), and to check for any errors.
These pdfs remain as they were in January; the actual book is updated with accepted submissions after that.
2022 Yearbook Information
The Apollo Yearbook is a student publication. Our goal as student journalists is to encapsulate a year's collection of stories that represent the experiences of our Sunset community. While our yearbook staff strives to represent every unique story, with well over 2,000 students, this proves an impossible task. With that being said, we hope that ever individual will find stories they connect with.
Despite the countless hours put into every book, there will be mistakes. We sincerely apologize for every misquote, mistaken identity and egregious grammar crime that may have been committed; never has an error been intentional.

Baby & Friendship Ad Submission (Personal Ads) - Deadline Friday Dec. 31, 2021
The Apollo Yearbook is happy to sell & include personal ads in celebration of seniors. Customers will pay for and create their own ads online, allowing for complete oversight of the ad content. Simply go to yearbookforever.com and type in the school name, and the system will guide you step by step.
Note on Technical Difficulties:
If you run into problems with the link to create an ad not showing on the yearbook forever page, it may be any pop-up blockers you have on your computer. Most often, this happens when attempting to create an ad from the workplace, where computers may have more blocking software set up. Try a different browser, from home, and/or unblock pop-ups, and this should solve the problem.
