Summer info 2013
ALL Parents, you are getting ready to start your student’s new year in high school! Yearbooks are currently available for $45 (or $50 with a name plate) and the price will go up again after the start of school in the fall. These are available during iPad+ (registration) in August as well. Our yearbook is a fall delivery book so that we may include spring activities. You are ordering a book for this NEW year. Last year’s book will be available in Sept.
To order a yearbook, you have many options this year: You can fill out the form at the bottom of the page (combo form) and mail it to the school Attn: Erika Sponsler, you can bring it to registration OR you can purchase a yearbook on-line (link in the right hand column). If you purchase on-line, you can pay with a credit card and there are tons of options available from the company, which we don’t offer for in-school sales. Students can order icons to add to their name plate—like a soccer ball or year of graduation, they can order autograph inserts, plastic protective covers and much more!
Just go to www.yearbooksforever.com (link to the right) and search for Western High School in Parma and you’ll have the opportunity to select a package or customize your book for the 2011-12 year. You can also order ads online! If you or someone you know would like to support the student-funded yearbook, you can order them in the same place or fill out the additional for on the back.
Senior Parents: It’s your student’s LAST year at Western and we know you’re excited and nervous—so much to do!! Yearbook would also like you to be thinking about senior picture requirements. You should be scheduling/completing appointments with photographers NOW. Your senior’s pictures will be due to the yearbook by the first of December. You can have your photographer email us a digital copy or they can provide you with a hard copy and/or a disk. (email below) A digital copy of the picture is easiest for us and results in the best quality picture in our book. We do not have many “requirements” for senior pictures but ask that pictures meet dress code and suggest a vertical pose for best results in fitting the image to the frame on our pages. Baby pictures to be used in the senior section are due at the same time—again, a digital copy is easiest but we can scan your original if necessary. There is a late fee assessed for those who submit pictures late--turn them in ASAP.
You also have the opportunity to put a ‘senior’ ad in the yearbook! Many parents want to put in a little “congrats” or a collection of baby and senior pictures to commemorate their senior’s graduation. You can create the ad yourself on your computer and send it in as a JPG or we can create it for you. A staff created ad will need you to send us your images and text. We always STRONGLY recommend that you don’t send the original (IE your ONLY copy!) of your pictures. Scanning them and/or submitting digital pictures is best. We can receive images via email at the address listed below OR you can save them on a disk or thumb drive and bring them in. If you are interested in purchasing an ad, these need to be turned into Ms. Sponsler ASAP.
There is an ad agreement included on the combo form below. We are asking that you pay for your ad when purchasing. If you do not, you will be billed and your ad will not be printed until payment is received. Ad prices, unlike book prices, do not change across the year--order any time.
You may also call and leave a message at the school I will get back with you as soon as possible, call Ms. Erika Sponsler’s room at 841-8201 but during the summer, email is the easiest way to contact the yearbook at firstname.lastname@example.orgThank you from the staff of The Pride.
