Three Steps For Graduation
Keep checking here for important dates as we work through the school year.
November 7 - 11- Senior Week has ended. Did you order your cap & gown? If not the deadline has been extended for $20 off your order until December16th! Click the following link: Be sure to prepare for your Class of 2023 Graduation Ceremony
- December 12 - Submit senior portrait and quotes to Yearbook.
- February 3 - Senior Dedications for Yearbook purchase deadline.
Due by December 12. *Seniors you must submit your senior portrait and quotes together please!**
Seniors may choose to use a different portrait in the yearbook, instead of their ASB photo.
The yearbook staff tries to ensure that all seniors are included, so you MUST submit a portrait no later than Monday, December 12, 2022!! If a student misses the deadline, their ASB photo will be used instead. No exceptions!
Here are a few guidelines to follow when trying to choose which portrait to submit:
- - Headshots must be VERTICAL
- - Any background is fine, indoor or outdoor
- - Photos with inappropriate props, added social media filters, and black and white photos will NOT be accepted.
- - We require that your digital file is 8x10, 300 dpi and in jpeg format
- - Photos that do not follow the Edmonds School District Dress code policy/procedure will not be accepted.
Senior pictures should include the head, shoulders, and chest. Any background is fine. Photos should be in color not black and white. We prefer photos that are not full body because we won't be able to see your face easily.
Leave your fellow Warriors a few words of wisdom at the end of the year with a Senior Quote. Each senior is encouraged to submit a quote to be printed next to their portrait. Please be aware that inappropriate quotes WILL NOT be featured in the book. Quotes must be fewer than 100 characters - that’s letters, spaces, and punctuation.
**Seniors you must submit your senior portrait and quotes together please!**
Email your quote and senior photo to: firstname.lastname@example.org
*Quotes are subject to approval.
PLEASE send all materials (pictures and messages) in at once, but it does not have to be at the time of purchase. We can NOT accept anything past the deadline of February 3rd!
NO EXCEPTIONS! The yearbook staff has very strict deadlines to meet, thank you for understanding!
