Yearbooks For Sale and Picture Day

Our online sales center is up and running and we are ready to sell! Yearbooks are now for sale and you can get one at a discounted price of only $60. It’s a limited-time deal, so place your order before the price goes back up later in the year. You can click here to order or use the Buy link at the top of the page.

And in other good news, Picture Days are coming in December! Days? Yes, because of the whole cohort schedule, Lifetouch will be here December 7 and 14 to make sure they get both groups. We’ll have more details for you as we get closer, including sales info and (hopefully) an option for those opting to go full virtual for the year.

Senior Portrait Update

Appointment cards are on the way, and with any luck they arrived already. Make sure you confirm (or reschedule) your appointment by visiting Lost your appointment card? You can still confirm at the website by searching for the school and entering your name.

And since we lost all the appointments scheduled during the schoolyear, we added July 10 as an extra date to help accommodate everyone. If you miss July, remember that there are still more portrait sessions on August 10–12 and one last chance on September 10.

For more details check out our Senior Portrait Info page and let me know if you have any questions.

Distribution Day and Senior Portraits

It’s June 9 and the end of a crazy day. We finally received a confirmed shipping notification and the books will be here Thursday, so distribution will happen Friday, June 12 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Student Parking Lot. We’ll hold another day next week depending on how many people can’t come get their book. If it’s only a few, we’ll leave them in the main office for them to pick up when they can.

We also found out that we received a number of extra books. So, if you’d still like to purchase one, just shoot Mr. Kurzius an email and let him know. Books are $70 and payment is due before you can receive your yearbook. Make your checks out to ‘MHS Yearbook’.

Finally, we have some news about Senior Portraits for the class of 2021. They were supposed to be this week, but for obvious reasons they’re not happening. The new dates are July 8–9 and August 10–12. Juniors, keep an eye out for appointment cards and make sure to confirm your appointment when you receive it. There is a make-up session in September, but with your luck you’ll be sick, so don’t miss your summer appointment. More information here.

Site Redesign

Welcome to the new site! There’s a lot that goes into producing the yearbook and we want to make sure sure you are informed about upcoming events. So, check here for information about things like senior portraits, picture day, sales and senior ads. We’ll also occasionally post copy that doesn’t make the book, mostly spring events that happen after our publish date.

And don’t forget to buy this year’s book. Only $70 while supplies last. And if you missed last year’s book, you can pick one up for only $10.
