See https://docs.google.com/document/u/0/?q=ladder for all the different photos needed. Note: Dedication page photos and Senior page photos are handled by a parent. If we don’t have enough photographers, we’ll ask students and teachers to send photos in of themselves and their classroom, or drop pages.

There are two sizes you need to manage in your MSPublisher application: page size is 8×10. Paper size is 8.25×10.25. This allows ⅛” bleed. Your margins should be ½”. Pages will be collected in PDF format in a shared site TBD. If you don’t have MSPublisher, use another layout application that can save the file in PDF format with these page and paper sizes. Send a test page in before you begin the real work.

Written content adds quality to the yearbook! Written content can vary depending on what writers would like to do! In the past, written content has included captions, paragraphs on activities/events, headlines, poetry, and fun student surveys.
