Yearbook Committee Plea

The Silver Springs Yearbook Committee is looking for creative volunteers to help make the yearbook a success for the kids today and a treasure for years to come. If you enjoy taking pictures or working on your home computer designing online scrapbooks, please consider joining this fun committee. Parents enrich the school community through their participation and generosity. This is a great way to get in those volunteer hours on your time as the bulk of the work is done from home.

If you are interested in volunteering on the yearbook committee, please email micklashmelissa@gmail.com to learn more!

Would you like to see more photos of your child in the yearbook? We need your help getting photos of as many students as possible! Please send any fun photos of 2019-2020 school year Silver Spring activities (this includes back to school photos, Halloween and other holiday class parties, assemblies, etc) to micklashmelissa@gmail.com.

Yearbook Committee Chairs,

Kristin Gifford and Melissa Micklash
