Instructions for Creating your Page

Creating your page is just like creating a scrapbook page.

Paper Version
Some people use photographs and arrange them on scrapbook paper.  If this is easier for you, keep the following guidelines in mind:
     -Use pictures that are clear.  If you use pictures that you have printed out on your home printer, they will lose some clarity when they are reprinted in the yearbook.  If you only have digital photos, get prints made at Walmart and use those.
     -You can use either a sheet of scrapbook paper or a sheet of printer paper. Either is fine but it needs to be 8 1/2 x11". 
     -Don't worry about leaving a margin. Nothing will be cut off.
     -Don't put tape on the outside. Either use double-sided tape or use regular scotch-tape and make a little tape circle to attach the pictures to the paper. You can also use a glue stick.
     -You can write on the page with marker or pen.  Pencil won't show up very well when I scan the page.
     -You can add scrapbook stickers, even the dimensional ones.


Digital Version
Most of us have tons of digital pictures. If you feel comfortable creating your page on the computer, that's fine too.
You can create your page on your computer and send it in on a CD or flash drive.

I can take pages that are saved in the following formats: .jpeg (my preference), .pdf, .doc

     -The page should be 8 1/2 x 11. Don't worry about leaving any margins.
     -Make sure you are using the full size pictures and not a thumbnail version.

You can use Microsoft Word or Picasa. I have a page with basic instructions for how to create a collage in Picasa. I recommend Picasa because it is a free program and it is really easy to use. 

If you have some other program that you are familiar with, that's fine as long as it will save your page as a .jpeg or .pdf file.

Business Ads

Advertise your business and let everyone know that you helped support our school at the same time.

Wacona has approximately 700 students, who all have parents and grandparents that view our yearbook.

$25: Have your business card appear in our yearbook. This is a great option because it doesn't cost a lot and it doesn't take up a lot of room in the yearbook, leaving more room for pictures of the KIDS!!!

$35: A quarter of a page

$50: Half a page ad

$100: an entire page

To purchase an ad, send in a check made payable to Wacona. You can send it in with your child, drop it off at the school office, or mail it to:

Wacona Elementary School
Attn: Andrea Miller
3101 State St.
Waycross, GA 31503

Include your business card or whatever information you want included in your ad.  If you already have an ad that you use, you can email the ad to amiller@ware.k12.ga.us and send a check to the school.
