Welcome to the Yearbook Staff!
Congratulations on being selected to be part of a great team! This is a privilege unlike any other activity at South, and there is nothing more rewarding than seeing your work published and receiving compliments from all of your friends, classmates and teachers. I am excited about this year and eager to work with all of you on this very large group project. We are going to have a successful year and hopefully have some fun in the process.
Yearbook is unlike any other class you are taking! It is
a class, an extracurricular activity, and a business. We have the awesome
privilege and responsibility of preserving the memories of this year for
every student at
Yearbook is a privilege and you are representing
Another part of yearbook is selling ads. This is sometimes the most difficult part of yearbook, but essential. Each person will be responsible for selling $250, or a page worth of ads for the yearbook. The business manager has spent a lot of time over the summer and the first few days of school training staff and organizing a system for doing this. Staff is expected to go to all the places they have signed up for and bring back the evaluation form to the business manager. Students are expected to sell $250 in ads, or bring back five signed evaluation forms. The business manager will follow up and try to get the business to sponsor a page, if they did not buy an ad. This will be a large part of the first nine weeks grade. Ad sales can be in the form of business ads or buddy ads. All ad sales are due by Wednesday, Sept. 26th.
Grading for ad sales: Total 250 points
Full credit: $250 or at least 5 business evaluations, or some ad sales and a combination of adding up to 5 businesses
200 points: $200-$250 or at least 4 business evaluations
150 points: $150-$200 or at least 3 business evaluations
100 points: $100-$150 or at least 2 business evaluations
50 points: $50-$100 or at least 1 business evaluation
No credit will be awarded for those who do not attempt to sell ads. This will result in an F for the first nine weeks. Students all agreed to sell ads as part of their application to be on staff, so they will be held to that expectation.
Students are expected to create their own pages and meet the deadlines. There will be time set aside on Saturdays for students to come in and finish their work, if they are not finished.
I have read and agree to the items listed in this syllabus.
