For the first 10 years of school, the school system I was in only did yearbooks for the senior class---and only the senior class had photos in them. My family moved and I spent my junior and senior years in a different school. We got photos taken at school and I didn't think much of it. Then a friend asked me if I bought a copy of the year book. I said "no" because I thought only seniors were in it. She then explained to me that everybody's photo was there. So I bought one and also got one senior year, too.

I've saved them---and plan to keep them when we downsize. Those 2 years of school were the best ones for me.

I suspect, that in the end, my daughter probably won't keep them---just as her kids probably won't keep hers either.

Four years in an all girl high school in Chicago. Graduated in 74 and I have all 4. Through the miracle of Facebook I reconnected with about 20-30 of my classmates and we meet up a couple of times a year. I love it.

Threw it out years ago. High school was not a happy time for me.

Donate to local libraries and historical societies. I keep thinking I should go ahead and donate mine, but every once in awhile I run into someone who went to the same high school way back when and I want to look them up. It was a very large high school, so didn't know everyone.

Never got one, and there is no one in it that I care to remember.

Have the senior year book in my nostalgia box. With many awards ..photos and report cards.
So many folks signed the book....teachers...fellow students. The comments are a reminder of our aspirations and naivete'. My group of friends were the misfits....each one of us could have been a character from the breakfast club...
It made it tolerable to have a group that was uniquely versatile...
One of my closest friends was such a rebel for change...years after h.s. she was rallying for change.
Hadn't spoken to her in a few years..
