Breath a sigh of relief. Take a minute to relax. Feel proud of yourself. Your book is done.

Congratulations to you and your staff for finishing your yearbook. Be proud of all the work you have done this year, and don’t focus on the mistakes or what you could have done better.

Use this time to have some fun with your staff. Do fun activities. Have a good time.

After taking a few weeks to decompress, leave this year’s book in the past and starting planning next year’s book. To start planning for next year, think of the following:

  1. What worked and what didn’t? How can you make it better next year?
  2. What changes do you need to make to your staff handbook?
  3. What changes do you need to make for your staff organization?
  4. Start planning theme ideas for next year.

If you need Matt or I to work with your staff in any way, please let us know. We are here for you!
