Has anyone taught yearbook/headed the yearbook committee? They’re adding that as an elective this year and I’m trying to sort things out. I had some experience with Jostens while student teaching but that was years ago.
The other art teacher and I are almost the entire yearbook committee. We use Lifetouch for our school photos, and they have a yearbook program that we use.
My advice is to get as many photos as you can. Reach out to teachers for candids (our teachers didn’t send many :/), go to events and classrooms to take photos yourself, or find a photographer parent. We did all of these, and we had a dad who was a professional photographer that went to every event then gave us a CD of his photos near our deadline and he was a lifesaver.
Good luck! :)

Rachael finally knows what a leek looks like in real life and not just in Pokémon!
Bully messes with karate champ. [video]
The source video is very, very worth watching. A few things to point out:
The young woman in the dark coat is continually trying to escape from the man. She has spoken to him, she’s pulled away, she’s even tried to walk away before he dragged her back. She hit him as a last resort but it didn’t do anything, he just got more aggressive.
The girl in the white jacket was walking by, recognized that a bad situation was happening, stopped, and intervened. At 0:28 she calls the man out, and continues to call him out until he breaks off attacking the young woman in the dark coat and turns his aggression on her. At which point she defends herself—and then she escorts the young woman in the dark coat safely away.
This is a hero.
Bringing this back.
Also the woman who kicks the guy is Olga Ivanova, world champion in Taekwondo.
