Yearbook signing parties can make delivering yearbooks easier for you and can be helpful for students too because they aren’t always in the same classes at their friends! We noticed that for our promoting class, it was important for them to get all of their friends and former teachers to sign their last yearbook of elementary school, and they just didn’t have time to find friends or teachers in other classes and have them sign their yearbooks during lunch. We made a decision to change that!
There are a couple of ways to host a signing party. It can be done by grade level – having each grade out in the quad or the lunch area or even the multipurpose room. We live in sunny Southern California so we are able to have all upper graders and then all lower graders outside for a larger party. We pass out the yearbooks and the kids run around and get as many people to sign it as possible. If you have a smaller school, you could have everyone at one time!
