Yearbook Sales & Info

Yearbook Sales and Distribution Update

Yearbook sales are now closed! The final yearbook distribution list is now posted here and in the window of room 14. This list includes the final day of sales on Monday, May 19th. Please check this before distribution day on Friday the 23rd, and contact Mr. Forrest immediately with any concerns. This is your chance to make any corrections to the list. In particular, if your name is not on the list and you believe we have made a mistake.

Yearbooks will ONLY be distributed to students whose names are on the list. Distribution will be on Friday, May 23, immediately following 6th period, from the South Gym. Students are requested to have ID with them to speed up the distribution process. You may not pick up a book for someone else without their written permission. No books will be released early. If you know you will not be able to pick up your book during Distribution, you can arrange to have someone pick up your book for you, or you can pick it up the following week at lunch and after school from the business office.

We will not be selling books on Friday the 23rd. We will sell books beginning at lunch and after school during finals week on a first come, first served basis, for $100 cash only.

Our goal is for this to go as smoothly as possible. You can help by checking for your name ahead of time, contacting Mr. Forrest if there are any problems, and having your ID with you at distribution. If there are any issues, we will need to research them, and this takes time. If you get to distribution expecting a book and your name isn't on the list, we will take your name and info and check our records, but because distribution is so busy, we may not be able to resolve it until the following week. Ultimately, if your name is not on the list, and you do not have proof of purchase in the form of a receipt, a bank record or a cancelled check (or a photocopy of one), we cannot release a book to you. Please, check for your name ahead of time. Thank you.

Welcome Back, Vikings!

The Valhal yearbook hopes that by providing clear information as early as possible, more people will be featured in the yearbook, more people will be able to purchase the yearbook, and our own production will go more smoothly as well. Please save this information, and check periodically for updates.

Senior Parent Ads – Due Friday, September 20th, 2013

More information and an order form for senior parent ads are in this Messenger and online at . Order forms are available in the Business Office and Main Office as well. We encourage you to sustain this wonderful tradition, and take advantage of the enduring forum the yearbook presents to tell your senior how you feel about him or her.

Senior Portraits - Due Friday, October 18th, 2013

You may use any photographer you choose. We encourage you to schedule your session as soon as possible, to ensure that your photo will be completed in time for inclusion in the yearbook. You should clearly determine with your photographer who is responsible for submitting the photo to the yearbook. We do accept non-traditional or amateur portraits, but we reserve the right to request an alternate photo if we deem a submission inappropriate or of insufficient photographic quality.

Senior portraits are due in to the yearbook by Friday, October 18th, 2013 . Please spell your name exactly how you want it to appear in the yearbook when you submit your portrait. Write your name on the back of any hard copies submitted, and on any CDs submitted. If emailed, be sure to name the photo “last name, first name.” We do accept non-traditional portraits, but we reserve the right to request an alternate photo if we deem a submission inappropriate or of unacceptable quality. All school guidelines regarding unacceptable drug, alcohol, sexual, or gang-related content should be followed. Please remember that these are portraits , and will be oriented vertically. Photos that involve props, full body shots, or horizontal orientation may be cropped by Yearbook, especially those that feature more than the student's head and shoulders.

You may submit portraits 3 ways: 1) Online, as an attached JPEG , to . 2) As a JPEG on a clearly labeled CD or DVD. 3) As a traditional hard copy photo printed from a film negative, not from a digital file. Do not submit photos embedded in Word documents or email. If submitted online or on a CD, JPEGS should be 300 dpi for a wallet size (approximately 2.5 x 3.5 inches) photo. (A rough rule of thumb is that photo files should be at least 100KB or bigger.) All photos should be oriented vertically. Formal portraits should follow these guidelines:

•  Wallet size (larger is okay, but not necessary)

•  Head size approximately 1 ¼ inch

•  Color

Courtesy of Valhalla Photography, we will provide free yearbook-only professional photos for those students who do not purchase a senior portrait. Scheduling information for this will be posted in the fall. Between professional portraits, our free portrait sessions, and the school ID photos, we want every senior in the senior section!

We will post the names of all senior portraits received. Please double check to make sure your photo has been properly tracked. Check online, or in the window of room 14 in the fall after you have submitted your portrait.

Business Ads – Due Friday, November 1st, 2013

If you are interested in placing an ad for your business, these too are due in October. Please call the yearbook in the fall for more information on rates, etc.

As always, the Valhal staff thanks you for your support, and hopes you have a great year.

Mr. Steve Forrest, Adviser
