Yearbooks - A Lifetime Memory


TreeRing Banner 


What is a Yearbook?

A yearbook is a school year in pictures. In addition to the official school photo of your child and their class, we collect photos throughout the school year from families, teachers/staff and our Alcott PTSA yearbook team. Our volunteer Yearbook Lead uses all these photos to create a memory book of the school year. Yearbooks are sent to print toward the end of April and are distributed to students who have purchased a yearbook in June.  


Additionally, the yearbook supplier we use provides families the option of creating two free personalized pages, so you can be sure to have your child and their friends featured in their yearbook. This option is only available until April.
