Yearbook Creation

Through tradition, we have created an annual yearbook to keep the memories of de Portola alive.  The sixth graders especially enjoy it, as they will soon depart to their new world of middle school.  And all of the kids love seeing their own smiling faces and along with friends in the yearbook each year, one that their friends can sign and then collect dust for eons to come.  Please help us collect fun pictures so your child can be included in the shots.

Photographer for your class- we need 2 per class Signed Up: 5 / 32

If you typically go to class events, please consider this. As all pictures are possible good pictures, and we tend to not have enough puctures submitted at the end of the year without people like YOU! Try to take pictures of your classroom activities, as well as school acivities in general. Of course it means yoour child will be well represented in the yearbook, but also try to get every child in the classroom represented as well. After taking the pictures, you will need to upload the pictures to the yearbook site(instructions and help willl be given). The final step for any pictures uploaded is to move the pictures from the general inbox folder to the specific activity folder. The coordinator will be setting it all up for you, and if you need any additional help it will be right there for you.
