Senior Year! Yearbook Deadlines!
2020 Seniors! Yearbook Info!
We’ve highlighted the best parts for you! It’s a boatload of information!
Senior Pictures: Due Friday, November 15, 2019
- We recommend using Prestige Portraits for your senior portrait. Prestige has our requirements, ensures our deadline and supports Seaholm by returning a portion of their revenue back to Seaholm. They will also schedule a yearbook-only session for a very minimal cost. You will probably receive separate informational mailings from them as well. Even better, get it done in the summer! See attached flyer from Prestige for locations!
- Deadline to be photographed by Prestige is October 19, 2019
- Senior Pictures can be taken through your choice of photographer, as long as they meet the yearbook requirements attached in the mailing.
