Buffalo Ridge Yearbook
A Note from Mr. Ryckman
I want to personally thank all of those 4th and 5th graders who went out on a limb and applied to be a part of the BRE Yearbook Crew.
It breaks my heart that we couldn't take everyone who applied.
That means that there were a LOT of people that really wanted to be in your shoes so I hope that you take advantage of this amazing opportunity.
I want you to know that there were a lot of factors that we looked at when picking people for the club.
Here were the deciding factors:
1. Did you fill out the application completely (including $20 T-Shirt Fee).
2.The quality of the caption sample the students wrote on their application.
3. The reasons given on the application for why they wanted to be a part of the yearbook club.
4. We wanted to take some 4th graders (to have some returning leaders next year) but more 5th (because it is their last year to participate).
5. We wanted a balance of both boys and girls (because a yearbook should tell the story of everyone in the school).
6. We spoke with students' classroom teachers to find out if they turned work in on time, if they were creative, good writers and if they were responsible and trustworthy in the classroom.
Please check the calendar for meeting dates and listen carefully to announcements for any changes that may pop up.
