The Sycamore yearbook is created by a volunteer team of students and parents, and guided by one of the fifth grade teachers.  The yearbook committee is selected after students submit applications, and then meets every week from September to April to complete the yearbook.  
In order to make a yearbook that includes as many of our students as possible, we use composite-style pages for school photos by class, and then use hundreds of candid pictures from our multiple events at Sycamore.  This is where our parent community really contributes:  by uploading their pictures to the Herff Jones website for Sycamore, we are able to include almost every child in a candid or two!  Please see below for instructions. 
Great Picture is one that has about one to four people in it and is a close up shot showing the subject from above the waist.

Here are some photo-worthy opportunities throughout the school year:




13th            Fun Run

23rd-31st    Red Ribbon Week

31st            Halloween Parade



3rd             Family Game Night



1st            Book Swap

2nd            Family Game Night



12th -16th    Spirit Week



We also need pictures of kids at lunch, recess, Library and Art. If you are volunteering on campus during any of these activities and have pictures to share, please do.


Yearbooks go into production in April and are handed out the last week in May. They were available for purchase during Fall Registration and we will have one more opportunity for purchasing yearbooks in the Spring. If you don’t remember if you purchased one during Registration, simply log onto your Togeda account, skip to Step 6 and look at the middle section (School Year Summary for Sycamore Valley PTA) to confirm if you have purchased one.


If you have any questions about the yearbook, please contact Jen Lindsay:
