Holiday breaks are around the corner for schools, which means a time for us all to take some time to relax around with friends and family.

However, student life continues over the breaks, providing opportunities for your yearbook staff to capture a slice of this year to look back on years down the road. Let’s take a look at a few spreads that caught our eye from the 2020-21 school year. The first example comes from Shawnee Mission West High School in Overland Park, Kansas.

The yearbook staff chose to include a Thanksgiving spread using a mod to share the favorite dishes of various students along with their favorite board games. (see above)

The next example is from Timber Creek High School in Fort Worth, Texas for their “Sno-Vid” spread. They chose to highlight how their community rallied together around power outages and frozen pipes. The yearbook staff paired photos of students for each day of the week to show the timeline of how the city was working to overcome its challenges during this time and the record low temperatures.


Our final spread is from Harding Academy in Searcy, Arkansas. Their yearbook staff shared a story of students experiencing the record levels of snowfall during winter break. Each photo showed students enjoying different activities like building a snowman or sledding with their friends. In addition, they also chose to run a second story on how teachers were able to seamlessly transition on snow days as their virtual lessons were already prepped due to COVID.

Will your staff be providing any holiday break coverage this year?
