Only about ten days to go until we get to the first big holiday of the school year, Halloween. Thanksgiving and all the other winter holidays will follow soon after. Plan now how you will cover them.
For instance, if your school (like many we know) bans all holiday celebrations, consider covering Halloween in other ways. It is still a big day that many of your students will want to remember. Get pictures of students working at their after school jobs in costume or someone taking their little brother or sister trick or treating.
But if your school still celebrates, then make sure you take lots of pictures of costume contests and any other Halloween festivities that occur and leave room for them in your Student Life section or use them as a feature in your People section.
