The Log (yearbook)
Log Advisor Sue Michalski oversees the publication of the school yearbook.
Parents of seniors may now create a Yearbook Ad online (see the document at the bottom of this page). All photographs and text for the ads are submitted through the yearbook company's online portal.
Formal Senior Portraits:
Option 1. Use an outside photographer: Photos should submit photos to Alizah Barker by October 1. Students should be in dress code, and photographs should be taken by a professional yearbook photographer.
Requirements for formal portraits:
• standard yearbook head shot (no do-it-yourself, passport photos, etc.)
• solid backgroud
• black and white OR color
• no “blurred” lens
• no props or accessories in the photo (soccer balls, trees, etc.)
• no profile shots
• no hands/arms (head propped on folded hands etc.)
Option 2. On-campus photo: Each fall, a photographer is invited to campus so that students who have not made other arrangements may schedule a time to have a portrait taken. Students choosing this option will schedule a session in the fall. Students must sign up in person during lunch. This year, local photographer Janine Norton P’13 will be on campus on the following dates:
• Saturdays and Sundays, September 22, 23, 29 and 30
• A nominal $35 sitting fee will be charged; photos will be available to purchase through Ms. Norton's website.
• Each senior will receive a complimentary yearbook engraved with his or her name.
