Past Photo Submissions

 

NEW CATEGORIES FOR MARCH! The yearbook is taking photo submission until Wednesday March 31st for the last time this school year! Photos will be accepted under the following specific categories. Please read each description carefully. 

Category Descriptions

Portrait Pictures – if you did not take pictures during Medina’s Picture Day, you may upload your child’s portrait in this album. Please include only a headshot (use the cover photo as a reference) and use a neutral background (i.e.; grey, beige, white). Please ensure there are no patterns, objects, or people in the background.

 

KG, 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 4th grade– each grade will have a mixed section of candid photos. Please post only ONE photo of your child in their grade album.  Please include the child’s name, grade and teacher in the tag or comments.

  

CLUBS (Chess, Destination Imagination, Math, Reading, Running, Snow Sports) – if your child has participated in any of these Medina clubs, you may include ONE photo per club.

 

5th Grade Graduates  – since this is our graduating class, parents are invited to post any special memories from the 2020-2021 year of their 5th grader! You may post up to THREE photos per child.

Guidelines

  1. Only post relevant photos in specific albums. Photos that do not comply with album themes will not be used. The above descriptions provide all the details.
  2. Please do not create your own albums.
  3. Choose the best photo to post in each album, as multiple photos of the same student in the same category cannot be used. For example, if student X has 3 photos in Runner’s Club and 5 in Snow Sports only 1 photo will be used from each category.

Class photographers

Typically, class photographers are responsible for taking digital photos of your class at classroom events throughout the year to be included in the yearbook.

 

With remote learning, we are still determining how we can create the best yearbook possible! If you are interested in helping make sure your child's classroom has great photos in the yearbook, please contact us at yearbook@medinapta.org
