Yearbooks are not only treasured keepsakes. They’re also a powerful way to document the history of a school. And while every class’s yearbook is a special piece of the school’s narrative, this year’s edition will be unique. Students, teachers, and staff are all living together through a historical moment in time that’s directly impacting schools. Everyone in your school community has had their lives turned upside down. The yearbook, however, is an impactful way to bring back a sense of normalcy—by reflecting on friends, teachers, and milestones.
How do we document the school year in the era of COVID-19? There’s no doubt we must broaden the scope of yearbooks beyond classes, sports, and extracurricular events. These tips and ideas can help you create a yearbook that celebrates your school community and captures the story of this global pandemic for future generations.
