The PATRIOT yearbook staff chronicles the events of Florida Christian School. Through many hours of work, staff members plan themes; select the cover; sell ads; design, plan, and arrange pages; take pictures; write copy, and meet deadlines. And that’s just touching the surface! Throughout Florida Christian School’s history, the making of its PATRIOT yearbook has been one of pride and joy for its yearbook staff, as well as the FCS family.
