Yearbook Artists Wanted!

We are looking for artists grades K-6 to draw portraits of Eden Lake Teachers to be featured in our school yearbook! Artists will be assigned one or more teachers and will be sent a photo to help design the portrait.

Any materials can be used (pencil, pen, crayons, paint, torn paper art, etc.). The final portrait should be at least 5 by 5 inches in size, so it is large and clear enough to scan and reduce in size for the yearbook.

If interested or would like more information, please contact Mrs. Allen at by Friday, January 18. Please include the child’s full name, grade, and teacher. Final drawings are due February 22, 2019.

Yearbook Photos Wanted!

We need your photos for the Yearbook! If you can help, he is what you need to do:
  1. Use your digital camera or high resolution camera phone the next time you are at school for an activity or on a field trip.
  2. Check with the teacher to make sure you are not taking photos of students that have requested to not be photographed.
  3. Send your high resolution (300 DPI) photos via email to or drop off a flash drive in the office (Attention: Juliana Allen) and include your student’s name and teacher.
We really need photos from CARNIVAL, if you took some that night, please send them to
