Please email me:I am very quick to answer emails, but phone messages sometimes go astray in our phone system. Sometimes they even show up weeks later, much to my confusion. Please email instead of calling. I won't be able to return phone calls until my planning period (see box on the left).If you absolutely must call, my number is 704-260-6660, ext. 43309.
Senior pictures for the Class of 2020:Senior pictures are DONE. At least, summer senior pictures, summer make-up senior pictures, and in-school senior picture make-ups are DONE. If you're a senior who missed pictures, you may contact the photographer yourself -- his contact info is below -- and make an appointment that suits both you and him on a Saturday. Or maybe-maybe-maybe is he at another Cabarrus high school for a make-up day? That's between you and him. His studio is in Indian Trail. Last possible day to do this: Friday, October 18. If you do this, empahsize that you need the burgundy-brown background (not the more typical blue background); it's called Divinci.The vast majority of you have taken your senior pictures; you should watch your mailbox for a mailer from the photographer. The mailer will contain the pictures he took and an access code that'll allow you to place an order over the internet. Once you've seen the pictures, you should go online and choose the one you want to appear in the yearbook -- yes, it's your choice! Your deadline to choose your senior pose: Friday, October 18.Pictures for 9th, 10th and 11th grade students:Underclass students will have school pictures made on Tuesday, September 24, 2019. Schedules are posted throughout the school hallways now. Photo purchasing packets were distributed to all underclass students in homeroom on the first day of school. If you don't order pictures, you'll receive a single page showing the picture and explaining how to order it over the internet.Make-up pictures for 9th, 10th and 11th grade students is Tuesday, October 29.If you need to contact the photographer, here's his information:LifeTouch StudiosEmail: CRushing@lifetouch.comWebsite: LifeTouch.comPhone (preferred): 704-502-2769Cap & Gown pictures:On Friday, November 15 seniors will take Cap & Gown pictures as a part of Career Cruisin' Day. Cap & Gowns will be provided for you, but guys should wear white collared shirts and ties, and ladies should wear something that won't show at the neck of the graduation gown. Since the pictures are waist-up, pants and shoes won't matter. Cap & Gown pictures will be distributed to students in January. Students who don't place an order with the photographer on November 15 will receive a single sheet showing the Cap & Gown picture and information about how to place an order over the internet.Yearbook sales:Yearbook sales began Monday, August 25, 2019 at www.YearbookSonSale.com -- order soon! The price will go up for the first time on Friday, September 20. Between August and January, students can opt to have yearbook covers personalized (with names, monograms and/or icons), and they can choose to pay for yearbooks in several installments. Once February rolls around, personalized covers are no longer possible. Most importantly, the price of the book goes up, so it's best to get this chore out of the way and order a yearbook early.Senior ad sales:Senior ad sales for the 2020 yearbook began Augus 25, 2019. The earlier you order your ad, the cheaper it'll be. Ads can be purchased August through January, and they are as low as $60. Information was sent out through senior homerooms on the first day of school and order forms can be printed from this website.Ads can be ordered in two ways: You can send me and the yearbook staff an envelope of pictures and your sweet messages, and we'll turn them into a one-of-a-kind ad unique to your senior; you can specify the colors you'd like to see and more. Or you can log onto Jostens.com and create the ad yourself through your own computer. Either way, it's a lovely way to commemorate your senior's graduation in his or her yearbook.
Things you will not find on my website
Help with purchasing school pictures. I arrange the schedule for the photographer to take pictures on our campus, and I hand out the pictures he gives me. I do not know who purchased pictures, I do not order the pictures, and I never have any contact with the picture money -- in short, I cannot help with any "picture business". You can order additional pictures from the photographer later -- even after the school year has ended. If you need help with purchasing school pictures, go to www.lifetouch.com or call them at 704-502-2769.Help with sports photographs. Sport photographs were all made by Blair Phillips Photography this year. His email is email@example.com and his phone is (704) 855-3656.Help with Cap & Gown orders. Early in the school year Jostens will mail information about cap and gown sales to all seniors at their home addresses; it's a big white envelope with the name JOSTENS printed in big, black letters. The three-piece cap and gown set is $16.95 IF you order it with the group. If you wait, the price will go up significantly. If you've missed the group order, you can order a cap and gown through NCGrads.com . This isn't something to put off!Help with a senior class video. This isn't a yearbook publication; rather, it is created and sold by Mrs. Platek's broadcasting students. You can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org . Baby pictures /other pictures for the senior video should be sent to her attention.
Help with a video of graduation. We don't do this here at the high school -- someone at the county office tapes graduation, and it's viewable online, but I have nothing to do with that. In fact, I have nothing to do with any videos.
