valley-elem-5thThe yearbook is coming!  While the yearbook photographers are already providing many good photos, they can’t capture everything that happens in the school. Please help out by emailing your favorite snapshots to SGWSyearbook2015@gmail.com.

 

Early bird ordering for the yearbook  has passed, but regular orders are still being taken.  Order forms are posted on the bulletin board in the School Store or you can click here to download a copy.  Return your yearbook order form to the Caley mailbox. They cost $20. Extra yearbooks (if any are available) will cost $25 in the School Store.

 

Also “Happy Ads” are still available for $10 each. This is the perfect way to recognize your favorite graduate or teacher! Just fill out the Happy Ads portion of the yearbook order form and include the extra $10 with your payment.

 

In order for graduation photos to be included, the yearbooks will be available for pick-up over the summer in the school office. We will notify you when your yearbook has arrived.
