Hello Parents/Guardians and Staff,
This letter is being sent to inform you of a new deadline for photos to be uploaded to the Memory Book website. The original date was February 28, 2014, but we have had to move the deadline to February 7, 2014.
Currently, we are referring to the book as the Meghan Desrosiers & Sydney Walbridge Memory Book: with special guest appearances by Eddie Desarro, Hannah Adler and a few other well-known 5th graders. However, while these students are quite photogenic, we would really like to see all the 5th graders in the book! And it has come to this – I am imploring you to please, please, please go through all your pictures from kindergarten on up until today and upload them to the website as soon as possible.
Why the deadline change? It is because the final book needs to be to the publisher no later than March 28, 2014, and we are a little panicked that everyone will wait until the last day to upload their photos. That will leave us with only 4 short weeks to sift through hundreds of photos, get them categorized, rearrange pages, and other not-so-fun surprises. There may just not be enough hours in a day or even days in a week if everyone waits until the last day/minute.
If you have dates on your photos, but aren’t sure what grade it could be from, here is a little help:
K 2008-2009 / 1st 2009-2010 / 2nd 2010-2011 / 3rd 2011-2012 / 4th 2012-2013 / 5th 2013-2014
And if you aren’t sure of the event, we will figure it out or place it under “Candids”. The publisher is allowing us 1,000 photos and only 285 (mostly of Meg and Syd) have been uploaded – hence our begging for photos with a side of urgency.
We know you are all very busy and we thank you for staying true to your New Year’s Resolution to upload your 5th grader’s pictures way before the deadline so Christine and Karen don’t go run screaming into the night.
