**5th Graders Only ~ Baby Photos & Tributes Due

Each year, the yearbook celebrates our outgoing fifth grade class with a number of special features reserved only for fifth grade students. Among other things, these include a section featuring all fifth graders’ baby photos and another featuring personalized tributes to your children. Please help us celebrate our graduating fifth graders by submitting your child’s baby photo and creating a personalized tribute! The deadlines for these are fast approaching, so please review the details below.

5TH GRADE BABY PHOTOS ~ Due DEC 20th

It’s amazing to see how much our little ones have grown! That’s why the fifth grade baby photo retrospective is such a hit each year. Our kids love finding themselves and their friends on these pages, so we don’t want anyone left out. Please email ONE baby photo of your child to rooseveltbabyphoto@gmail.com by no later than Dec. 20, 2019. Instructions below:

  1. Only digital files will be accepted. (If you only have a hard copy, then either scan the image or take a photo of the image with a digital camera.)

  2. It is critical that each image is labeled with your child’s name in the file name. Please name your photo like this before submitting: lastname_firstname_teacherlastname. For example, a photo of Mary Smith, a student in Ms. Clark’s class, would be named: Smith_Mary_Clark

  3. Images must be at least 375KB and no more than 3MB. Minimum Size: 1.1 inches wide x 1.4 inches tall, portrait oriented at 300 DPI.

  • Classroom Collage Page Leads: We need one parent from each classroom to take or collect classroom photos, upload them into the yearbook and lay them out in our templates.

  • Fifth Grade Tributes: This one’s for you, fifth grade parents! We need one parent dedicated to each of the following activities: collecting and cataloging baby photos, working with teachers to have students provide quotes, communicating with all fifth grade parents about purchasing a tribute ad for their child, tracking these sales, and designing or placing these ads in the book.
