Get Your Yearbook!

High School is one of the most memorable times of a person’s life. The memories made during this time are long lasting and should always be treasured.

It is a valuable piece of artwork and history that is cherished for years to come.

This year the Hornet Hive Yearbook staff has been busy creating an unforgettable yearbook and it is definitely worth purchasing.  The price is at $70.00.
