Each campus in Lago Vista ISD may choose to produce an annual yearbook. At the middle school and high school, students are given the opportunity to plan and produce the yearbook while exploring the world of print and visual media. They will become familiar with photography, page layouts, design, and the editing process. Additionally, students will learn about what it means to build a respectful, responsible, and safe school community through discussion and project based learning opportunities.  At the elementary campus, the Lago Vista Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) gathers and produces the yearbook.
