End of Year Review
As school year winds down and the familiar feeling of summer is in the air. It’s a good time to reflect how the year went. Look at your yearbook and take notes on how you would like to change it for next year.
- Which events did you cover?
- Which ones should you add next year?
- Are there any areas you missed or need more coverage?
- Are there any changes you would like to make?
- How many pages did you need for portraits?
- Did you have significant changes to your enrollment?
- Do you need to adjust the number of pages needed for the portraits?
- Are you satisfied with the book’s design?
- Did it capture your theme?
- Did you like the book?
- Did the students like the book?
When you have your list of changes you would like to make, put a plan together on how you are going to achieve these new ideas. Put reminders in your calendar and notes in your schedule so you will be reminded in the heat of the season.
