Digital proofs will be emailed to the email address provided on your contract for your approval.

Make an appointment to create your ad together

30 minute appointments will be scheduled through ParentSquare for Nov 26-29, Dec 3-6 (M-Th) from 3:30-5:00pm.

Email text and photos to
Bring any printed photos, text or digital photos on a USB drive with you to your appointment. You should already have an idea of what you want the ad to look like so we can be efficient with our time (look in the back of last year’s yearbook in the office for ideas).

3. Submit by the deadline

Completed advertisement OR pictures and text for us to create your ad must be turned in by December 8.

4. Pick up your original photos or USB drive

Everything turned in to the office (photos or USB drives) will be returned to the office, and you will be notified when they are ready to pick up. Please ensure that your photos and/or USB drives are properly identified so there is no confusion on who they belong to!

Grad Ad Videos

Yearbook videos are included throughout our yearbook through the use of an app called “Aurasma” that play linked videos when scanned. If you choose to purchase the video add-on, your video will be indicated on your child’s ad by the inclusion of the video symbol from the yearbook (the symbol varies each year) and will start to play when viewed with a smart phone or tablet using the “Aurasma” app.

If you would like to see a demonstration of how this works, please refer to last year’s yearbook (available for viewing at the office), or feel free to stop by the yearbook room for a personal demonstration.

At this time, we are unable to create your video for you.

1. Create your Video Message

Videos can be slide shows, video footage, or any combination thereof.
You are encouraged to include sound, including music and/or spoken message.
File size is more important than length: videos cannot exceed 95mb no matter how long they are.

2. Submit your Video Message by the deadline

Video messages cannot exceed 95mb in file size. 90mb or under is better.
The video file should be saved in a common format, such as .MOV, .M4V or .MPG
