Middle school yearbooks will arrive sometime mid-June.  A distribution plan will be made at that time and families will be informed (through an all call and blast email).  Families can pay off their balance owed on the yearbook (if they owe anything) at http://jostensyearbooks.com/?REF=A03504700 .  We will be reaching out to families in the next 2-3 weeks to remind them if they owe any money for their yearbook.
