VCHS Viking Log

The VCHS Viking Log has a long tradition of preserving the memory of each school year.  The yearbook is created by a staff of students under the direction of their advisor. Students interested in working on the yearbook should contact the advisor to become part of the staff. 

Each year on Moving Up Day, the VCHS Viking Log is dedicated to a staff member.

      Parent Ads

      Senior Parents, we have a NEW exciting opportunity for you. In place of the traditional Baby Picture Ads, the Yearbook staff will now be accepting ads from parents through Jostens.com at this link: jostensadservice.com Now parents have multiple size options for ads and are able to design the ads themselves. Parents are no longer required to submit just baby/childhood pictures of senior students. The ads can be designed with any picture(s) or message of your choice. Please limit your submissions to TWO ads per student. We are excited to see the beautiful memories that you all will share! (Deadline for this is by February 10 of the Senior year).  Payment will be by PayPal (you will receive the link with the submission receipt). 

      This opportunity is announced in school, on the website and on our Facebook page. 

      Seniors and their Siblings

      Every year the Yearbook staff likes to give the graduating seniors an opportunity to be photographed with their younger siblings or step-siblings who are also students in the high school. Usually staff members schedule photo sessions during post-session. 
      This opportunity is announced in school, on the website and on our Facebook page.
