In Yearbook Club, we design, promote, and sell the ULA Yearbook. Assisted by teachers, students use an online computer program to create pages, and are also primarily responsible for taking the pictures that will end up in the yearbook. Our main goals are to capture the atmosphere of UpROAR Leadership and include every student's picture in the book. Yearbook club will help reinforce writing and social skills. It requires a great deal of writing and time, but it is a positive experience.
After being voted into office by their peers, the members of the Student Council enhance their leadership abilities, citizenship skills, and demonstrate responsibility by taking an active role in their student government, as well as activities, including the majority of ULA fundraisers. These students are considered "model" students and apply that privilege to their everyday lives. The Student Council is the governing body of the students at UpROAR Leadership Academy and has a threefold purpose: To help students become more aware of the role they play in the community; to better the conditions of the school, both among the students and about the school; to raise funds for various student activities.
