Reminder – Photo Submissions

Reminder to get your pictures in the yearbook!  All grades are included in the yearbook so we need your help.  If you have great photos of school events, email them to us!  We can’t be everywhere to take pictures so help us get as many photos as possible to create a terrific yearbook to remember this school year!

Ways to submit photos for the yearbook:

Please submit photos that are:

  • school-related
  • digital, no hard copies will be accepted
  • high resolution (300 dpi jpg)
  • original files – no screenshots
  • full color
  • unaltered – do not crop, use photo filters, add text or create collages
  • not watermarked
  • recognizable – faces should be visible or partially visible
  • in focus – not blurry

Be sure to include your child’s name, grade, teacher and event info in your email.  This ensures that photos are placed on the correct pages.

If possible, rename your files:

  • 1 Child in photo: “X Grade_TeacherLast_ChildFirst ChildLast” e.g. “6th Grade_Mikulanis_Jane Smith”
  • Kids from the same class: “X Grade_TeacherLast kids” e.g. “4th Grade_Rose kids”
