Yearbook Contest

Yearbook Cover Contest Rules

This year’s yearbook theme is “Patriotic.” Please have your child be creative and use his/her imagination by creating a cover that captures the essence of HRE with a patriotic twist. Please no computer-generated pictures. Just remember to be school appropriate in the design choice.



  • The work must be on the “official” cover page provided (you can print the pdf below or your child can pick up a copy from the office). Use only colored pencils. NO CRAYONS.
  • Every artist needs to include their name and teacher's name on the back of the template. Please use a pencil to avoid it bleeding through onto the cover. We will type type the winner's name on the cover before submitting the final product to the publisher.
  • School name and year are already included on the template and not needed. Any additional wording must be legible. Please have your child take their time and do their best work when they write.
  • All entries MUST be turned in NO LATER THAN the morning of Monday, November 28th. No exceptions.
  • Please follow the rules (listed above). Those not following the directions will not be considered.
  • We will have two cover winners (one for the front and one for the back cover) as well as one winner per grade level (their submission will be highlighted on their grade level collage page). A thumbnail of all other entries will be included inside the yearbook!



The winners will be announced during morning announcements.


**If your child would like to work on their submission over the weekend, please click on the link below for the printable copy. Please note that there are two sides to the document. The back has a space for your child's name and their teacher (please be sure that they use pencil on the back to ensure that it doesn't show through on the cover). If you are unable to print a 2-sided document, please do not staple anything to the entry- you can just include the necessary information on the back.

This Month's Read-a-loud

Our school-wide read aloud for November is Stolen Words. All of our teachers will be reading this book with their class, but we encourage you to read it as a family as well.

Holiday Light Recyling

Starting on December 5th and going until January 13th, we will be collecting unwanted/unusable holiday lights. Technology Recyclers will come to pick up all the lights collected. Many of our teachers will use this event to teach their students about sustainability, electricity, conservation, math, and environmental science.
