      • Create a yearbook picture wall of great photos used in the yearbook.
      • Share a photo of your yearbook cover.

      • Sandwich boards promoting how to purchase the yearbook.
      • Put “time is running out” signs around all the clocks in the school (or main student congregation clocks) at school. This will get their attention!
      • Do countdowns each day both verbally and visually to say how many days are left: 8-7-6-5-4-3-2- THE FINAL DAY!!!! Do this with announcements and fliers around the school.
      • Play “The Final Countdown” by the band Europe during your yearbook announcements!
