Start planning for your 2017-18 yearbook now!
Dear Parents and Pine Street families,
We are using TreeRing as our yearbook provider again this year. TreeRing provides an exceptionally different yearbook experience because:
· It offers 2 free customizable pages in every book ordered;
· There are optional upgrades available at additional costs (eg. Hardcover book, additional custom pages);
· It plants one tree for every yearbook ordered, and;
· It is an online company based in the US. (This means parents will order directly from the TreeRing website and the cost will be charged in USD. A major credit card will be required.)
The cost for the 2017/2018 Pine Street Yearbook is $26USD. We have increased the size of the book to 90 pages this year to add additional candid photos from the classrooms and events at the school. To order you will need to go online to www.treering.com/validate
and use our unique school code (1014762959353462). From here, you will follow the prompts to create an account and link to your student(s), which should already be loaded in the system.
If you created an account last year, you simply log in and select this year. Please note that when entering your child’s name, use only their FIRST and LAST Names (no middle names or initials).
The cut-off date to complete your customized pages and order is July 31, 2018. To ensure your order is submitted prior to this date we encourage you to go online soon to familiarize yourself with the process. We also recommend that you start “saving” the photos you may like to use in your customized pages in a folder or file so they are easy to access when you are ready to create your pages. Should you not wish to take advantage of the customizable pages, a standard copy of the yearbook is also available for purchase, at the same price. Standard copies must still be ordered through the TreeRing website.
TreeRing is offering discounts to encourage people to order early and get started on their yearbooks. They are offering 15% off for books ordered in September, 10% off October orders and 5% off November orders. Feel free to order now, work on your book over the coming months, and then set your custom pages to print ready by the deadline. TreeRing is very user friendly and has a great support system. Should you run in to trouble at any point creating your pages, please access the help feature that is a part of the website.
Should you have any questions or comments please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate yearbook in the subject line. We hope you have fun creating your customized yearbooks and enjoy the TreeRing experience. If you are having issues and cannot get the support from TreeRing, please email us and we will endeavor to help solve the problem.
We have set the cut-off for yearbook orders and customized pages to after the school year ends to ensure all the fun activities at the end of the year (such as Track Day) can be included. As such, yearbooks will be delivered in September and will be sent home with students roughly the second week back to school. If you are moving or transferring schools, but stay within the Elk Island Public School District, books can be couriered to your new school or picked up at Pine Street in September.
