GRADS! GRAD WRITE UPS:
It’s that time of year—Yearbook will be
collecting grad write-ups. Grad write-ups are placed in the grad section of the
yearbook along with your Artona grad photos. Please note that if you do not
submit a write up, your Artona photo will appear at the end of the grad
section, not alphabetically with the rest of the grade.
When composing your write-up, please keep in
mind the following:
· - School yearbooks
provide students with a very special memento of their school year. They create
a sense of honour in the school as they document the accomplishments of staff
· - They are historic
documents and are an important part of the school’s and the school district’s
archival collection. Yearbooks belong to the entire school community, including
past students, staff, and administrators who are proud to have been associated
with the school.
· - School yearbooks
are public documents. They are a reflection of the values and ideals of the
school that they represent.
Here are some specific requirements:
· - Grad write-ups
should be written in standard English prose in first person, following the
standard rules of capitalization, punctuation, and grammar.
· - Initials, abbreviations,
slang, offensive language, and codes are not appropriate for the school’s
· - The writing style
of the yearbook is not the style you might use in e-mail or text messages.
· - Remember to
properly source any quotations.
· - Your grad write ups
must be FEWER than 575 characters, not WORDS.
Please note that school administrators will be
reading over write-ups and will edit as required.
Think RESPECT: Responsibility, Equality,
Safety, Pride, Excellence, Courtesy, and Tolerance.
After completing your write up and reviewing
the requirements, email your write up to firstname.lastname@example.org with your
full name. We will be accepting write ups until Tuesday, November 20th, 2018.
No write ups will be accepted after this date. Yearbook (8)
