SEM PTSA NewsBlast - Yearbook Sales - May 12, 2016
Let’s heat up our yearbook sales!
Purchase now.... but now before we sell out of all 200 books we’ve ordered!
Below are our ONLINE sales (plus 3 envelopes) as of May 12.
We know we have envelopes in our drop box with orders and hope to add those names tomorrow.
What I need you... as parents/students... to do.... is review the list below... and if you believe you’d paid ONLINE... and your/student’s name is not below... please contact Marianne Leclerc firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP to correct the list.
We don’t want to sell your book!
Please be generous with your extra donations... as we’d like to gift as many to students who can’t afford a book as possible. If you have a suggestion, please pass it along to email@example.com.
Order your Yearbooks! They are on the way!
Books are available for sale thru our website here or you may put a $35 check or cash into our PTSA dropbox in the office. We have envelopes available or you may write your child’s name/grade on any envelope and include payment. Donations (in any amount) to pay for books to give to kids who otherwise would not be able to afford a book are welcome and encouraged. We'll have 200 books for sale on a first come/first served basis... order yours today!
We have prior year’s books for sale. If your child is an upperclassman and you haven’t purchased all four years of books... it would be an awesome graduation gift to have the entire collection. (We currently have 2014, 2015, 2016 available for $35 each.) If relatives are asking what they should buy your child as a gift... send them to our website! Free shipping... ;-).
SAVE THE DATE: Plan to attend the yearbook signing party!
Our yearbook signing party has been moved to Friday, May 20. (originally scheduled for April 13.) This is a party where we distribute the yearbooks all at once and give the kids several hours after school to hang out and sign each others books. We provide food and decorations to make it a festive party. this year's theme is "Collegiate" and we welcome help with the decorations. Please contact Marianne Leclerc if you'd like to help... firstname.lastname@example.org.
Forming next year's yearbook committee now!
Working on the yearbook in a leadership role is a GREAT thing to put on your college applications and really does give you good project management experience. We are already forming a committee for next year’s book, and are in search of an executive editor, and an editor for each grade. The executive editor needs to be someone who can rally the other students to be deliberate about taking high quality photos throughout the year, load them onto the yearbook server and build the yearbook pages - keeping an eye on good representation of the student body.
If you are organized and would sink your teeth into organizing the yearbook, please contact Marianne Leclerc.
We also need new parent volunteers as the parents who started the yearbook have seniors who are graduating this year and its time to hand over the reins.
Along the same lines... we are looking for people (students and parents) who would like to work on the website committee as we strive to really build-out the site and make it a full repository for all school activities and events and make its calendar function more useful.
Please call Marianne (214 906 7022) or email (email@example.com) to discuss what all is involved in any of these tasks.
