September 26, 2018 / National Yearbook Week

National Yearbook Week is a time for celebration!

Written by Aimee Parsons

We love National Yearbook Week and you should too! It is basically a big spirit week for yearbooks and we’ve been busy making party plans. We want you to join in on the fun all next week!

If you are new to yearbook, you might be asking yourself, what in the world is National Yearbook Week? Let’s start with the back story. In 1987, President Ronald Reagan declared the week of Oct. 4 each year as “National Yearbook Week.” That’s right, most holidays are a single day and yearbook gets a whole week! Because Oct. 4 doesn’t always start on Monday, we decided to get the most out of this amazing week and celebrate it the first full week of October every year! This year, it starts Oct. 1!

Celebrate with us on social media and at school with fun treats and yearbook specials. It’s the perfect week to spread awareness about yearbook and what makes it awesome!

Here is what we have in the works:

Enter The Best Thing About Yearbook Is… Drawing!
