The yearbook price will be set as soon as the page numbers are set (approx $30)
depending on the number of ads sold. We can reduce the cost of the yearbook by selling ads. Please consider asking businesses and organizations to place ads in our yearbook. Each family who fills a full page with ads will receive one free yearbook. A half page of ads earns ½ off the yearbook price.
You may purchase your yearbook online here:
beginning in November.
The more ads you sell, the cheaper the yearbook is for everyone.
Deadline is the last day of SCCCHE.
Probably the best part of our yearbook, these are one page scrapbook pages submitted by the individual families. The fee is $5 (make checks out to SCCCHE).
