This year’s yearbook will be a true community effort, and it’s already underway. Parents and teachers are invited to contribute and assist as much or as little as you like.

Ways to Contribute

Upload & Share Photos! Here’s how.
Anyone can contribute photos to be used in the yearbook, and all are welcome. You can upload your photos from your computer, Facebook, Flickr, Instagram, Google Drive, and Dropbox. Be sure to choose “Yes – I want to share” during the process if you would like editors to have access to your photos for use in the yearbook. Thanks!

Tag Photos Here’s how.
Tagging photos with student names helps us to make sure everyone is represented in the book, and helps editors find individuals within the hundreds of available photos, making editing easier. If you have time to tag our community’s shared photos, you’re welcome to help. Thanks!

Custom Pages Here’s how.

New this year for DVWS: Each yearbook comes with two, free customizable pages. Creating custom pages is fun, easy, and completely optional. Your child will love having extra photos of their favorite memories printed in their yearbook. All you have to do is log into your account from a desktop computer at any time between now and April 15th and upload some of your favorite photos and memories. There’s no checkout process for these pages, no extra fees, and no catch. They’re yours for free! These personalized pages are completely optional, so don’t worry—if you take no action, you will receive the standard yearbook.

Why TreeRing.com?

There are many reasons we use TreeRing.com for our Yearbook and have done so since 2015. One reason stands out—the company values line up well with our values. TreeRing’s environmental roots go deeper than their name. They have a strong commitment to the environment and to protecting the planet that our children will inherit. In addition to printing all books on recycled paper and eliminating unnecessary waste, they plant a tree for every yearbook purchased. TreeRing.com has planted 217 trees on behalf of Da Vinci Waldorf School since 2015. TreeRing.com has planted 2,471,879 trees so far, and counting.

Many Thanks to Our Team of Yearbook Volunteers:

Elisa Kraus, Stephanie Santos Gray, Andy Ecklund, Melanie Boehmer

Thank you! We hope you enjoy this year’s walk down memory lane!
