Support the 8th Grade Yearbook!

The Class of 2019's yearbook is going to be the best ever!

To fund the Yearbook, we need to sell advertisements. Traditionally these are congratulatory “ads” - generally wishing your graduate or the class well and including a few photos of your child or family. The deadline for submitting your ad and payment is March 4, 2019


  • A full-page ad is $70 (2 half-pages can be purchased for $70)

  • A half-page ad is $40 (horizontal only)


Step 1: Reserve your ad

Ask your 8th grader for the ad form that he/she was given this week or click here for a downloadable form. 

Fill out the form (designating the number of ads and the size) and submit payment to the school office (please make check payable to The Philadelphia School, with TPS Yearbook written on the memo line). Please put the form and check in an envelope marked Yearbook.  

Please note that there is a maximum of 2 pages per student. (This can be 2 full-page ads, 4 half-page ads, or 1 full-page ad and 2 half-page ads).

Step 2: Create your ad 

We are providing templates for you in Word; if you use these templates, attach the finished ad in an email to [email protected] as a Word document.  (If you are comfortable working in another program, such as Photoshop, that is perfectly fine, but please keep to the template dimensions and send the final version to us as a jpg.) The size of the ads are as follows:

full page - 8 by 10 inches - download template below

half page (only horizontal) - 8 by 5.25 inches - download template below

(There is no need for additional margins, as your ad will be placed within a page that already has margins.)

Additional important information:

  • Your page can be in color or in black and white.

  • Only use sharp, high-resolution photographs. (What you see on the file you send us is what it will look like in the finished product.) 

  • Please carefully proofread your text before submitting your ad. We will not edit your ad.

  • Make sure your font size is not too small (again, what you see is what will appear in the ad.

  • Please do not use a color background if you are using a Word template.

Completed ads should be emailed to [email protected].  If you need assistance preparing an ad, please email [email protected]. Please remember that the absolute deadline is March 4.

Stay tuned for information about our "Baby Picture Page, which is being assembled by Robin Parke." 

Thank you so much!

The Class of 2019

P.S. Please note that the Class of 2019 will be the Photo Book for our grade. It will be available at no cost to all 8th grade families - as long as we raise enough funds from the sale of congratulatory ads.
