Eight Acres Yearbook

Dutch Yearbook and Eight Acres: a class, an opportunity, and a publication.

The Eight Acres Yearbook, named in reference to the size of the campus on Birmingham Place that Holland Hall called home from 1938–1970, celebrates its 80th volume in 2019-2020. Each volume includes the annual story of all Holland Hall students and faculty PreK through grade 12 along with school events, trips, athletics, arts, and more! Eight Acres features school photos from each class and represents the entirety of the Holland Hall community, preserving the story of each Holland Hall generation.

Eight Acres is a student publication designed, written, and published by the Dutch Yearbook class. Students in Dutch Yearbook select the theme, design the layout, take photos, write stories, and handle every facet of creating each over-300-page volume. The 2019-2020 class working to build volume 80 consists of 21 students, who work in teams under the guidance of Ms. Shirley Sokolosky.

Yearbooks are only available for purchase from Jostens.com. They are on sale for $90 from October 1, 2019, through February 28, 2020.
