SENIOR YEARBOOK AD
The 2017-2018 yearbook is coming together and looking great. For any parents who have already reserved a senior advertisement and have not submitted any materials, we need them immediately; otherwise, we will not be able to guarantee your ad will be published. Please submit your photos, parent letter, preferences, etc. to Mr. Atkins, or email them to email@example.com.
In addition, if you are unable to remit the total of your advertisement until the payment deadline of Monday, February 12, 2018, please submit a down payment of $25 along with the ad materials, in order to confirm your space. There is still room for additional pages for anyone interested. However, space is limited. Please email Mr. Atkins with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
