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

    At the moment, the best way to order your yearbook will be to order online at jostensyearbooks.com.

    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. 

    Submission Deadlines for 2021 yearbook

    Senior Portraits

    Senior portraits must be submitted to the Jostens Photo Submission page linked here. 

    That page also has a link to the yearbook purchase and Senior Baby Ad webpages. 

    Due ASAP and definitely BY Sun., November 1st, 2020.

    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. 

     

    *If Get Connect Day does not happen, we will contact your student for other photo optons.

    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. 14th, six weeks after senior portraits are due. If you miss that deadline, consider a Buddy Ad instead. 

    All ads should be submitted on this Jostens website. After opening the link, select "Yearbook Recognition Ads" to proceed.

     

    Baby Photo Ads -

    Parents or guardians normally submit these ads, which include a heading, a baby or toddler photo, and a message for the graduate. 

     

    Deadline: December 14th, 2020

    Buddy Ads -

    These ads are different from Baby Photo Ads. They celebrate relationships that students have formed during their school years, such as friend groups, extended family, or other outside-of-school group activities. These ads should include a heading, group photos, and a message that includes names of those pictured. These ads do NOT normally include solo baby photos.
     

     

    Submission window is between Jan. 4th, 2021 and February 11th, 2021   

     Last Day to Order a 2021 Yearbook online via Jostens
