    ESSENTIALS

    • 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 veteran staffer to lead quality control. And, make sure new eyes are seeing finished spreads before they’re final. Spellcheck early and often.
    • It’s time to think about next year’s staff and start recruiting. Go to herff.ly/ybk-recruiting for resources.

    NEXT LEVEL

    • Do you have photo retakes? Upload the new photos and include a not-pictured list in your portraits section to create a complete and accurate record.
    • Make sure eBusiness is updated with all in-school sales. Check books sold against your order. Did you order the right number?
    • Look for opportunities to up your coverage. Can you fit a mod in that space? Ask your staffers, “How many books have you sold on this spread?”

    EXPERT

    • Taking photos inside can be difficult, and outside, it’s getting darker and darker. Whether you’re covering basketball or parades, pre-plan your hardest shots and camera settings.
