Announcements

  • Please make sure that students have their portraits taken at Get Connected Day, even if you do not plan to order portraits. Why? THESE PHOTOS ARE OUR STUDENT PHOTO sources, including DEFAULT SENIOR PORTRAITS for those seniors who do not submit portraits from other sources. We want to include all students, especially seniors, in the yearbook.

    Yearbook Orders - Last year we sold out, so don't delay.

    You have three options for ordering:

    1. Visit the Whigrean table at Get Connected Day (Aug. 29th or 30th) and submit a check for $85 (made out to EHS Whigrean) along with the order form we will provide.
    2. Print out the order form here and submit it with your check (see option 1) by mail or in person to Ellen Guerin, Whigrean Adviser, c/o the EHS Office, 6754 Valley View Road, Edina 55439.  Prices go up after Sept. 30th.
    3. Order online at Jostens Online.

    Please keep a record of your order date to avoid duplicate orders (!) and make sure that you pay in full for your yearbook as soon as possible in order to avoid price increases. Last year some families forgot to pay the balance due before yearbooks were distributed. Students are not able to pick up yearbooks unless the balance is paid, which can result in some sad student faces on yearbook distribution day.

    If we do not receive a Senior Portrait from a student, we will include their Get Connected Day school photo (even if they did not order photos). Please make sure that your senior has a school photo taken at Get Connected Day as a backup. 

    Yearbook Recognition Ads -

    There are two ad categories: in the yearbook, the ads are grouped by type. IF YOU WANT TO SUBMIT A BABY PHOTO AD, THE DEADLINE IS Dec. 1, about 3 weeks after senior portraits are due.

    Buddy Ads -

    These ads are different from Baby Photo Ads.

These ads should include a heading, group photos, and a message that includes student names. These ads do NOT normally include solo baby photos.
