They always sell out, so be sure to order early. Yearbooks are not sold at school ...only through Balfour.
2020 SENIOR ADS
You should have received information about placing a senior ad in the 2020 yearbook by mail in May. An ad contract and other ad information are linked on this page and/or available from a yearbook staff member. Ads for the 2020 book are due on September 5 by 3:30. Please do not ask for an extension on this date...we have very little time to get the ads completed and sent to the publisher, so it is important we have all the ads turned in by Sept.5. Payment alone does not hold ad space. We must have everything turned in on Sept. 5. For the first time, you can now PAY FOR YOUR SENIOR AD ONLINE at www.balfour.com when you order your yearbook. If you choose to pay for your senior ad online, please make a note of your online order confirmation number on your senior ad contract, which will still need to be turned in by Sept. 5.
If you are sending a pre-designed ad or a senior photo from a professional designer/photographer, PLEASE NOTE THIS on your ad contract. Photos or ads from professional photographers can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please make sure you come PROOF YOUR AD on the assigned day (as shown on the ad contract). Last names starting with A-M may come proof ads on October 23 between 9:00 and 4:00 in R206. Last names N-Z may come proof ads on October 24. Ads that are not proofed are printed as is and no refunds/adjustments can be made to ads not proofed by a parent. Obviously, we do our best to ensure that no mistakes are made, but it is very important that parents come check their ads to ensure accuracy before the ads are sent to the publisher.
2020 SENIOR PORTRAITS
In order for 2020 seniors to appear in the senior section of the yearbook, they need to have their portrait taken at ChildChamp Photo over the summer or in early September.
