• Published since 1949,  Montage documents teen life at California Area High School. The annual remains a favorite today, providing the student body with memories of today and (often amusing) clues to the history of their families. Mrs. Claudia Bennett became faculty sponsor during the 2008-2009 school year. Students enrolled in Journalism pay steady attention to the task of producing the yearbook, with help from yearbook club members. Any day is a wonderful day to join the Montage staff!
    The book is produced using the Jostens, Inc. web-based digital design program, YearbookAvenue. Students and family members are encouraged to share their photographs detailing student life. Bring images to the high school library, send an email to bennettc@calsd.org, visit the High School homepage for a current link to our image upload site or just Google ReplayIt or search for the app.  We can also scan paper photographs in the library.
    The Montage staff appreciates the tremendous support and generous underwriting provided by the CASD School Board and our administrators. It is our goal to become self-sustaining. The students are learning that advertising and fundraising projects are important components that help to keep Montage affordable.
