It is quite common for people to be excited about college / high school yearbooks but that is normally not the case for elementary school yearbooks.

Most elementary schools don’t even create their yearbooks, because of lack of interest in it. But this is wrong mindset as we will share why the elementary school yearbook can be a treasure trove for alumni contacts, fund raising events, career opportunities or just plain seeking to renew old friendships.
