The wall of socks in the Claremont yearbook room

The yearbook staff at Claremont High School in Claremont, Calif., has been using the fun idea of staff socks up on the wall to spread cheer around the yearbook room.

As a team-building exercise, staff members slip encouraging and lighthearted notes and thoughts into other staffer’s sock.

And as you can see from the picture of the Claremont sock wall, the sock can also be a way for each member of the staff to show off their personality.

Many thanks to Claremont co-editor Kathryn Lewis and Walsworth yearbook rep Therese Lyons for sharing the idea!
