REOPENING SPECIAL EDITION NEWSLETTER

EDMS YEARBOOKS...

It goes without saying but this school year is one for the books! So it's a good thing the El Dorado Yearbook staff has been working hard to make a yearbook that captures what this school year was like. From wacky quarantine trends to seeing where our teachers are leading class from to our new "classmates" aka, our pets, this book will have it all.


This book will be a community effort so families will want to make sure they order theirs today! Please visit yearbookordercenter.com and use school code 6212 to buy yours today!


We are also asking families to send in photos of your student's life during this time. Everything from what online learning looks like at your house to family game night, what everyone's hair looks like with salon's being closed! Have you had any drive by birthday parties or celebrations? Maybe socially distant family dinners? Maybe you have started cooking and baking together or riding bikes more! Has your student been doing online extra curricular activities like zoom Karate classes? See, there is LOTS to document!


Send us anything and everything that will help us document this school year. All pictures and descriptions can be sent to nicolam@mdusd.org
