For those of you who were unable to get photos taken last week, we have added an additional date. In order to appear in the yearbook, seniors are required to sit for a formal portrait with Photo Texas Photography. No student ID photos will be used in the yearbook. We encourage seniors to go to the studio for their sittings; however, the photographers will be back on campus Nov. 6. Seniors may get their portraits made at that time by appointment, which can be made in Room 285. The photographers will set up outside of Room 285 and will have the necessary apparel for students. They will be back on Dec. 11-13 for retakes. In order to appear in the yearbook, you must have your portrait taken no later than Dec. 14.

Parents may honor their Senior children with a loving Senior Tribute in the 2018 yearbook. Please click on online order system.

Please note that the process has changed for placing senior tribute orders this year. We are moving to an online system in order to streamline the process. This system has layout options to choose from, or you can elect to upload a camera ready jpeg file into the system. Senior tribute space is sold on a first come, first served basis. Following are the deadlines:
