ABOUT V8

IT'S MORE THAN A BOOK

      When you picked it up in June, we gave you a bound book of 312 pages with a 32-page Spring Supplement magazine inside. But our coverage doesn't stop there. Look around this website and check our socials linked at the side for more - follow us at @tesseraeybk at YouTube and Instagram! Be SURE to check out our Video Team's amazing work on their Vol. 8 Theme Copy Release Video

IT'S ABOUT TIME... BUT NOT.

     We know your days are just as busy as ours. So, we thought about our schedule, and the seconds, minutes and hours that we live to get from one day to the next. But then we realized, sometimes people get too caught up on the clock. What happens then? What happens if we get stuck on the clock? Is it the only thing that matters? 

     And then we realized a lot of the time, it's NOT about time at all. It's about everything else. It's about the choices we make, and the opportunities we have. The drive we feel to power through the day, and how we react to good news, bad news, and everything in between. So - take a look inside the front cover of your copy of Vol. 8, or at the Coverage section here, to see what we think life at CPPHS is REALLY about. 

KNOW YOUR WAY AROUND

     You can find contents listings on the front endsheet and on each section's divider. Check out the folio & page numbers on the bottom right-hand corner of each spread to get a summary of the content there.

STAND UNDER OUR UMBRELLA, ELLA, ELLA...

     The book is organized in a concept or "umbrella" style, where word play unifies the topics on a spread.
     So - turn to p. 28 to learn how students SPEAK UP, or learn about how we react to PAIN and STRESS on p. 74 and 72. Or, go to 108 to see how marching band members and A&P students find their "RHYTHM."
     And yes, sometimes it IS about time - check out our eight time-based features, starting with 5:32 a.m. on p. 24. 

STUDENTS MADE THIS

     This book was created by our 52-member, student-led staff over the last year. All of us at Tesserae are grateful to have support from CPPHS and CPPASD administration, and our advisers Michael Simons, MJE and Katie Paulison-Harris, CJE. We are lucky to be able to produce our own work without prior review or censorship, and note that Tesserae is a public forum for student expression.

     With our work, though, comes mistakes. If you catch a typo, we apologize. If you have any questions or concerns about our coverage, please get in touch with us at tesserae.yearbook@gmail.com, we'd love to hear from you.
