If you have not yet ordered your 2018-19 yearbook, reserve a copy today at the early bird rate of $70 and guarantee yourself a copy. Prices will increase after December 31 to $80. Senior yearbook ads are also available for purchase. A senior ad is a dedicated section of the yearbook specifically for you. Your parents may purchase an ad online, and we strongly recommend that the ads be ordered sooner rather than later so we can start them ASAP. Once your ad has been purchased, we will email your parents a form to gather ad information regarding their son or daughter. Ads will be available for purchase until January 31. See the announcements page on the website to click on the link to reserve a copy of the yearbook or senior add.  Your 2018-19 Yearbook Team thanks you for your support.

You can put in paper money or coins – it doesn’t matter – the teacher who has the most money in their container will be singing on the morning announcements.  The trio will include one elementary teacher, one middle school teacher, and one high school teacher. Make sure you fill those containers to make your teachers sing!
