2017-2018 Yearbook Order Forms 2017-2018 Yearbook Order Form

For the second year in a row, the Archer yearbook staff earned a First Place in the National Scholastic Press Association critique. The 2016-2017 We Are themed yearbook also won one mark of distinction in photography.

The Archer yearbook staff has chosen ALL IN as the 2017-2018 yearbook theme to represent the commitment our students and staff put in to make all of our programs successful. The yearbook staff wanted to show that Antwerp students aren’t just athletes or musicians or performers or students. In order for our small school to have the programs we have, our students have to be multi-talented; on that same note, a school our size gives students opportunities to participate in many programs rather than just one or two. You can purchase a yearbook until May 18, 2018.
