Senior Parents & Students
Yearbook is now offering ads for Senior Parents. If you order online the costs range from $80 to $300 and are available through Josten's website. If you don’t want to use the website, you can email Mrs. Turner for more information. firstname.lastname@example.org .
The last day to submit an ad is May 12, 2022.
Senior Slideshow - as many of you may know during Graduation and/or Awards Night there is a Senior Slideshow that has been played. There has been a continuous trend year after year where fewer and fewer parents and students send in photos for this slideshow. Due to this, something that is supposed to highlight an entire group of graduates ends up highlighting a small group of certain students. Christina Turner is ready for you to send in photos for the senior slideshow. She will be collecting them until May 1st. If at this time we do not have seventy percent of the senior class represented in the slideshow we will not be having one this year. We apologize in advance if this happens, however, please use the next few months as an opportunity to encourage students and their parents to submit photos.
Class Shirts - Deadline March 27th
Get ready for Spring Fling Class Color Day with a Class Shirt! Student Council is hosting a class shirt sale. Elected members of each graduation class designed shirts using the class colors and they will be on sale until Sunday, March 27. (Per the website, printing the shirts requires we sell AT LEAST 44 for each class, if we do not sell this minimum money will be refunded and no shirts printed). We hope to be able to distribute shirts prior to April vacation but cannot make a guarantee. They will be given out as soon as possible after delivery or you can pay separate shipping and then send them directly to your home.
We WILL NOT ORDER EXTRA SHIRTS - you must order your own.
