Parent FYI: Photo Collections

Below is a posting from Mr. Lyons' Elementary Principal Blog regarding collecting and sharing of photos. You may want to keep these 'photo ideas' in mind while your child attends Pine Glen. That way, when your child is in fifth grade and it's yearbook time (it comes up faster than you can blink!), you will have a collection that you can share with the Yearbook Parent Volunteer super fast and super easy. If you are thinking about opening a Dropbox for storing your photos, please consider using my referral account in the sidebar of this blog. I need all the storage I can get! As always, thank you for being a partner in your child's education.  ~ Miss Varrell

Saving Photos 

The PTO sponsors the creation of a Fifth Grade Yearbook that is typically presented to students after the Moving Up Ceremony in June. Parents on the Yearbook Committee find acquiring pictures of students from prior years to be time consuming because parents or guardians have to look through a lot of photos.  The Yearbook Committee has asked me to please ask parents to save pictures over the years in a file so they are easy to find when students are in fifth grade.  Examples of pictures to save would be from concerts, field day, field trips, and grade specific events such as fourth grade’s Rocket Day.  A Photo Parent would be an individual who saved these photos over the years to share when his or her child was in fifth grade for the yearbook.  Any parent of a student at any grade can be a Photo Parent.  

A terrific tool to organize these photos is Dropbox.   Dropbox can be found in an app version. It helps organize photos by date and the user can create multiple files within it.  In addition, the photos and albums in it are accessible from any device.  Another great organizational tool is Google Drive.  A recent article from CNET OneDrive, Dropbox, Google Drive and Box: Which cloud storage service is right for you? discusses some of the some of these tools.
