While there are obvious things that NEED to go into the yearbook (i.e. sports, clubs, student body, awards) in between these things there may be a page or two that just needs “filling”. A page that needs something placed on it so the next section can start on the right side of the spread…a “filler” page. What do you fill these “filler” pages with? Funny you should ask…because we just happen to have some examples right here to show you!
Of course, a fun spread to create is the one about the Yearbook Staff! You’ve worked hard on this yearbook, your crew deserves some credit! Be creative with group/individual photos! Have fun!
Spirit and dress up days are GREAT photo ops! Chances are, your staff will have quite a few great shots from these activities! Reviewing the best-dressed from these days is a fun way to fill in a few pages!
What about what happens outside of school? So few students know much about the personal lives’ of their peers unless they are close friends. Why not spotlight how students spend their time outside of the school by doing a feature on who works where?
If your pages that need filling are at the end of a certain grade, you can use superlatives or just a ‘student life’ feature for that specific grade like the ones below!
No matter how you decide to fill your pages, it’s your responsibility as the yearbook staff to use content that your readers want to see. Making sure your student body is interested, intrigued and entertained will result in a higher number of yearbooks sold!
Be creative! Have fun!
And as always, Happy Yearbooking!
