- Beware! With holiday breaks, deadlines are closer than they appear.
- Keep spirits high and staffers focused. Balance work time with fun time and start a staff tradition.
- Assign a senior staffer to page quality control. And, make sure fresh eyes see finished spreads
before they’re final. Spellcheck early and often.
- Keep checking your school’s master calendar. Don’t miss photo ops.
- Put your club picture plan into play. Enlist club sponsors by running dates past them and
asking for club rosters.
- ’Tis the season for portraits sections. Flowing portraits is easy. Ask your rep.
- Do you have photo retakes? Make sure to upload the new photos and include the not-pictured list in your portraits section.
- Is it rude to make holiday assignments? Not when there are great stories to tell.
- Make sure eBusiness is updated with all in-school sales. Check books sold against your order. Did you order the right number of books?
- Look for opportunities to up your coverage. Can you fit a mod in that space?
- Yearbooks are a gift. Provide a certificate or holiday card for parents who want to stuff a stocking.
- You’re taking lots of indoor photos now. Pre-plan your hardest shots and get camera settings right.
Before taking on the responsibilities of the yearbook class, I was fortunate to attend a True Colors® seminar on personality typing that was offered by my yearbook rep.
Hear it from Ann – It’s always fun to study the new releases, noting what staffs are doing well and how trends are shifting. Whatever time I allot to reviewing books, I always wish I had more.
