Join the Yearbook Crew!

 

Calling all photographers, graphic designers, artists, editors, proofreaders, sales and distribution folks, class collage page representatives, and anyone else who wants to contribute! We need YOU!

Roosevelt Elementary’s yearbook is the most anticipated swag of the year. These books are 200 pages of FUN — chock full of portraits, classroom activities, school events, field trips, music, art, sports, clubs, and other special moments. But it takes a village to put this incredible keepsake together. 

Please join our 2019-20 yearbook staff! We welcome any kind of help you have to offer, especially in the key areas below. If you are interested, please email rooseveltsmyb@gmail.com or sign up here.

  • Photographers: Take photos of school events, classroom activities, field trips, art, music, sports and clubs, and upload selected images into our online software.  Sign up here.
  • Graphic Designers: Help create the look and feel of the book, from using templates to creating special layouts and adding artistic elements. Working knowledge of Photoshop and Illustrator required.
  • Section Editors: Help curate and collect yearbook content, create and manage section pages, and write and edit copy using our online yearbook software.
  • Proofreaders: Edit text for grammatical and factual errors, check for duplicate photos, ensure the accuracy of class rosters, etc. This role begins in the middle of the school year. 
  • 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.
  • Marketing & Community Outreach: Get the word out about our yearbook and help recruit yearbook crew to build and sustain a team legacy. This includes setting up and manning yearbook tables at school events and other outreach opportunities.
  • Sales & Distribution: Send email communications, put up posters, distribute forms in weekly folders, pre-sell yearbooks at events and Popcorn Fridays, and sell the remaining books on campus.
  • 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.
