Class of 2021 Yearbook Information

 

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s) of the Class of 2021,

The yearbook staff is excited to be a part of your student's senior year! Work on the 2021 yearbook is already underway, and we wanted to provide you with several important pieces of information regarding it. Please carefully review all of this information and contact us with any questions.

Senior Portrait Pose Selection

After you receive the senior portrait proofs in the mail, select one of the images for the yearbook. The selected image must be a vertical one with a blue background. (You are, of course, free to purchase any of the pictures, but these specifications are for yearbook purposes.) The information needed to select a yearbook pose will be included with the proofs. You must make this selection by November 16th or the yearbook advisors will select one for you. If you do not receive your proofs by this date, please reach out to us directly to determine an appropriate solution. 

Senior Superlatives 

Seniors have already nominated their peers for the class of 2021 superlatives. The yearbook advisors - who are the ONLY ones that will handle superlative information - tallied the results of the superlative nominations. A second ballot will take place (due Friday, November 6th) , and students will have the opportunity to select two winners, regardless of gender, for each superlative. 

Senior Quotes  

Seniors have the opportunity to submit a school-appropriate quote to appear alongside their portrait in the yearbook. The quote cannot be longer than 140 characters. It will be submitted via a Google form, which has already been emailed directly to students' school email addresses. The deadline for quote submission is Friday, October 30th at 2PM. This is a hard deadline, and no late submissions will be accepted. Please note that the yearbook advisors and administration have the final say regarding the appropriateness of quotes and whether or not they will be included in the yearbook.
