Below is a letter from Yearbook Club advisors Mr. Ross Marvin & Miss Anna Flores:
Dear Class of 2023 students and parents/guardians:
The purpose of this letter is to share some important yearbook information and deadlines. We will do our best to create a first-rate yearbook that will serve as a lasting reminder of your senior year. However, it is your yearbook and we need your help to make it happen! In an effort to increase communication between the Class of 2023 and the Yearbook Club, I want to pass along an email address for all yearbook-related questions: email@example.com.
We will be sure to respond to all inquiries in a timely manner. In addition to open communication, we also need the active participation of the Class of 2023 in order to make this a yearbook that you can be proud of. First and foremost, I need you to meet all deadlines for the submission of the senior class yearbook information and materials.
Senior portraits are due by October 28, 2022. Not meeting this deadline will result in the Yearbook Club using a school photo ID picture in the portrait section. Scheduling senior portraits should be the first and primary concern of families and seniors, as this will be the first section of the yearbook sent for publication. If at all possible, please schedule portraits in the summer or early fall. There are many first-rate studios and photographers who will expertly handle your senior portrait needs; however, Schuylerville CSD currently has a working relationship with Adirondack School Portraits for senior portraits. Seniors are encouraged to contact Adirondack School Portraits or any one of the many portrait studios in the area to schedule a sitting.
Senior portrait standards
Please be sure that your senior portrait meets the following standards:
- Portrait orientation
- No soft focus. We will NOT scan an actual photo.
- Seniors must be the only person in the portrait.
- A color digital JPEG image (300DPI – 2 ½” W x 3 ½”H—this means portrait orientation NOT landscape) sent as a JPEG email attachment is preferred. A JPEG is preferable for all other photos as well.
While students are welcome to show their interests through locations and props, please make sure the student is the focal point of the photo in order to ensure a clear image of their face and consistent sizing throughout the book. Please act quickly since there may be a waiting list for an appointment. All information must be submitted to Mr. Marvin. Pictures emailed as attachments in large file sizes are preferred.
We need members of the Class of 2023 to become actively involved in creating the yearbook, via student input and assistance on a wide range of issues and tasks, including: the yearbook theme, senior portraits, page layouts, candid photography, sports and club photography, proofreading, and sales/advertising. There are many opportunities for a wide range of skills and backgrounds, so please get involved! If you are interested in contributing to the yearbook, please touch base with Mr. Marvin during the first week of school and attend our weekly meetings. Meeting dates and times will be included in morning announcements. We look forward to working with you next school year to produce an outstanding yearbook!
