2015 Yearbook Etiquette
Before writing “H.A.G.S” (Have a great summer) in someone’s yearbook think about what you’re writing. Signing someone’s yearbook is the last time to say something memorable that the recipient will read and remember the writer by for the rest of their lives. It’s only fair that before picking up a pen the signer learns some proper yearbook etiquette.
- Rule number one is the simplest rule there is - do not be mean. No one wants to look back at a yearbook in 20 years and see how mean the signer was. That is no way to be remembered.
- Next is grammar. Take the time to spell words out so your message won’t seem like nonsense in 10 years.
- After checking for grammar, make sure you’re not a space-hog. While signing a yearbook it is easy to get carried away. It is important to remember you are not this person’s only friend and to leave room for other people.
- Writing neatly is essential in a yearbook. If no one can read your message, it’s worthless and does not deserve to be written. Overall neatness is key.
- The most important rule in signing a yearbook is making sure the person’s name is spelled correctly. Writing a heartfelt message is nice, but if their name is spelled wrong (or a person is even careless enough to write the wrong name), their message is meaningless. This is one of the most common and avoidable mistakes. If it is necessary, look at how everyone else on the page spelled the person’s name or just ask them how to spell it.
Now that proper yearbook etiquette is established, go out and sign to your heart’s content!
** Please Note **
Any writing in someone’s yearbook that is deemed inappropriate by administration may result in disciplinary actions and/or having the signee pay in full for said yearbook.
We will hold all clothing until the end of July. In August, we arrange for the Salvation Army to pick up any clothing that has been left behind. Please call ahead so that we can make arrangements for you to look through the clothing for any items your child may have left at school. Summer school hours are 8:00am-3:00pm.
