Please work on your SUPPLEMENT and NEXT YEAR'S THEME ASSIGNMENTTo make sure that we are all able to complete the important “NEXT YEAR’S THEME PROJECT,” our next milestone for this project will be next THURSDAY, when you will need to have completed the layout for THE SENIOR PHOTO BLOCK: Please read the rules VERY CAREFULLY!

Every year, the SENIOR PHOTO SECTION is one of the highlights of our book. It is certainly the section of the book that gets the most criticism and scrutiny from seniors and parents alike. Traditionally, our Senior Photo Blocks have all, or at least most, of the following elements:

  1. Senior Photo of the Senior.
  2. Full name of the Senior, usually in a fancy font.
  3. A Senior Quote, along with the author of that quote.
  4. A "Personality Picture"- This can be a masked photo, a set of photos, a background photo selected by the senior, etc. that shows their "personality."
  5. Signatures: We have done some "Senior Signatures" in the past, even though they require a lot of work to process. Include if you wish.
  6. A Color element: Seniors usually get to select a color that will be used in their photo block. We have not done single color photo blocks in the past, but I suppose we could.

If you need reference for this page, you can check out our SENIOR PHOTO PAGES in this year's book, starting at page 106.

WHERE WILL YOU MAKE THIS PHOTO BLOCK?: Please create a PRACTICE PAGE, called LASTNAME_SENIOR_PAGE. Please create this project on that page.

For this project, you will be designing the LAYOUT of a Senior Photo Block that would FIT THE THEME IDEA YOU HAVE FOR NEXT YEAR'S YEARBOOK.
