This is our second year having an all school yearbook. We are an Elementary. A little over 1/3 of the students purchase yearbooks and the only staff member that buys one is the Principal. The students love it and even help in putting it together, sort of a club.
I over heard a staff member saying it was ridiculous to have a yearbook at the elementary level. Not many elementary school around here have them. I'm out west in Eastern Washington.
How many of you have yearbooks for your elementary school?

Our Elementary has a yearbook. I am not sure how many of the students and staff purchase them since the 6th grade teacher and students are the ones that take care of it. (we are a K-6 school) But I know my kids would be heartbroken with out it!!

Our Elementary school has a yearbook that the 3rd graders get each year as they move on to a different school. All of our 3rd graders get them as our PTO pays for 100 % of the books.

We were never able to break even on them and they weren't very well done, so now we are working on getting a video yearbook going that has the highlights of the school year. This is also a fund that helps us update some of our tech stuff in the school. Not to say it can't work, I've just hard so much bad and seen so much headache that I dont' want to go there again anytime soon. Good luck.

The irony of commitment is that it’s deeply liberating-in work, in play, in love. The act frees you from the tyranny of your internal critic, from the fear that likes to dress itself up and parade around as rational hesitation. To commit is to remove your head as the barrier to your life....

We are K3-8th grade private school and we have a cute one. Parents of 8th graders traditionally buy a little ad in the back of the yearbook with a photo of the child when they started K3 and then their 8th grade photo plus a message. They also sell ads and alot of families will take out ads for their business. My daughter loves looking at old yearbooks. They're onthe floor by her bed right now (she's 8).

We have a yearbook (K-5 school) which is very well done and makes a little money each year. It is incredibly time consuming for the committee to put together, and every year it is tough to find someone to head the committee. Even though we have done this for 3-4 years now, we still have discussions as to whether it makes sense to have an elementary school yearbook. Many of the elementary schools around us publish yearbooks; I think this is one of the reasons that we started doing it. I could live with or without them, but my kids enjoy having them, and will still look back at the older books occasionally.
