What is the Lincoln yearbook?
The yearbook is for ALL students. Yearbooks showcase life at Lincoln Middle School throughout the school year and also include photos of all students (their ID photo). They are a great way to remember fellow students and to celebrate the year. The 2020-2021 school year is full of unique experiences, and the Yearbook Club has been working hard to capture it all!
How do I buy a yearbook?
Can I submit photos for the yearbook?
YES! We’d love photos of your student’s activities over these months of distanced learning! Did you get some cool holiday photos? Homemade holiday dishes, decorations, outdoor adventures, games, and more! Anything school-related is welcome too: home learning setup, pods, PE, music, etc. Some particular themes we’d love pictures for are:
- cooking or baking
- celebrating Halloween, Thanksgiving, winter holidays, New Year
- social distancing with friends (at the park, to get ice cream, etc)
- cuddling/hanging out/doing school with their pet
- playing video games, building a puzzle, drawing/coloring
- playing sports or doing outdoor activities (hiking, surfing/beach, frisbee, etc)
- completing school work on their computer or at their desk
- practicing an instrument or completing PE workouts
Thanks for helping to make our yearbook awesome!
My child missed getting an ID photo at the beginning of the year. Can they still be in the Yearbook?
YES! If your student missed out on a portrait photo for the 2020-2021 school year, you may send in a photo of your child to be used in the yearbook. The photo must follow the guidelines below. You can email Ms. Katz (email@example.com) the photo, no later than April 1st.
- Find a spot in your house where there is a solid color wall and good lighting.
- Wear a contrasting colored shirt.
- Have your child turn their shoulders to the right but look straight at the camera.
- Use the best quality camera you have access to at your house.
- Take the photo vertically.
I have an 8th Grader. How does the yearbook celebrate 8th Graders at Lincoln?
For our 8th Grade families, there’s an opportunity to make the yearbook extra special with a tribute for your student, to celebrate their promotion from middle school. We’re making a special collage of 8th Graders’ baby/toddler photos, too!
8th Grade baby photos
Lincoln has a tradition of having a collage of baby/toddler pictures at 8th Grade culmination. A collage of these photos will be in the Lincoln yearbook! Baby photos are not the same as an 8th Grade tribute, which includes a photo and message to your child for an additional purchase (see below).
The baby picture collage is a free and fun way to celebrate our growing kids! Pictures should be 300 dots per inch (dpi), or at least 150 dpi (which means we can’t use a screenshot from your computer, which is only 72 dpi).
You can either email a digital picture of your child as a baby/toddler (be sure to include your child’s first/last name) to Ms. Katz at firstname.lastname@example.org or upload the photo directly to TreeRing (for instructions on how to do so, see: https://help.treering.com/hc/en-us/articles/360054701672-Uploading-Baby-Photos). Please submit baby photos by April 19th.
8th Grade tributes
Tributes are a great way to celebrate your child’s graduation from middle school.
A tribute is a 1/4 page ad placed in the back pages of the yearbook. Tributes cost $50 each. You can see a sample tribute here. Instructions for purchasing your tribute can be found here: https://help.treering.com/hc/en-us/articles/360037631012-Creating-and-Buying-a-Recognition-Ad-for-Your-Child. Tributes must be created and purchased by April 19th.
All tributes are approved by the yearbook staff before they are included.
