These are the first steps from childhood toward independence: capture the joy of learning and of first experiences.
1. Student Polls: Top Cafeteria Dishes Spice Up Your Yearbook
Creating a student poll for the top cafeteria dishes is a great way to get students involved in the yearbook, creating a more interactive and relevant yearbook.
A great way to feature and memorialize lunchtime and food at your school is to create a poll page featuring the year’s top cafeteria dishes. School food isn’t all boring or bad – kids love certain meals offered at lunchtime and look forward to certain days of the week. Why not take a moment to celebrate these lunchtime favorites with your students by dedicating an interactive poll page to them in your yearbook?
Are you concerned that you’re lacking student interest in your Yearbook this year? A great way to get kids involved and excited again is to create interactive pages like this one. Polls are a phenomenal way to get students buzzing and excited to see what is going on in the yearbook staff room. Read More
2. The Creative Side: Exploring The Fine Arts in Your Yearbook
Do you feel like you may have too many pages dedicated to student sporting events, academic clubs, and not enough dedicated to the arts this year? Then it’s the perfect time to create a page or a few pages dedicated solely to the fine arts.
There are the traditional fine arts, like band and dance, which you should cover, but don’t neglect the more untraditional ones. Students in their art classes make incredible, innovative, and challenging works that often go unrecognized. Talk to art teachers to find out who is creating incredible pieces. Talk to students to see who has the coolest band, and showcase that. Any poets? Feature the best of your student’s creative writing. You may even want to dedicate a page to just that. Be as creative as the students whose work you’re showcasing. Read More
3. Getting Involved: Create a PTA Page for Middle School Yearbooks
Are you lacking inspiration in the process of creating your Elementary School Yearbook this year and at a loss for where to go next? Do you want to feature more parent-teacher involvement with your preschoolers? Why not donate a couple of pages to your Parent-Teacher Association, and extra-curricular activities where parents are involved and present?
A PTA page for middle or elementary school yearbooks highlights how parents can get involved in the school and a great collaboration between teacher and parent.
