Choosing Senior Portraits: This year seniors will be choosing their portraits for the yearbook digitally. Recently you should have received several emails asking you to choose the senior portrait for the yearbook online. The deadline to make your selection is Friday, October 23rd. Choosing your portrait online works best on a desktop computer, not a mobile device. If you received the email, follow the link and instructions provided there. You can also select the portrait for the yearbook by following the instructions in your physical proof book and logging onto the proof site. Once online there will be a red button on the bottom left side. Click the red “Yearbook Selection” button and follow the prompts. One final email will be sent out tomorrow (10/22) with the directions. Please note that only traditional formal portraits with the blue gray background will be allowed to appear in the senior section of the yearbook. This instruction is also in the email. Call 334-347-6063 and leave a message or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Calls will be returned at the end of the day.

Bring a photo of you as a baby or toddler in a self addressed and stamped envelope to Mrs. Mock's room (257) by October 30th. Make sure your name is on the back of the photo. Please DO NOT EMAIL photos. Photos will be mailed back to you in the envelope provided by mid November. If you do not provide a self addressed and stamped envelope the photo will be returned at graduation.
Senior Quotes: Senior quotes are another fun and free part of senior year. A Google Form will be sent to your school email address on Friday, Oct 23rd to be completed by Friday, October 30th.

Quotes deemed inappropriate will not be printed.
