Senior Class

Senior Portraits

We sent out 215 passes last month to talk to seniors who showed up as “Not Photographed” in our system. Luckily, most of those seniors had already taken their portraits, but the photos just weren’t uploaded in the system yet. We wanted to make sure we talked face-to-face with seniors to walk them through their options because while we’ve been announcing the dates via text, email, auto-dialer, WPTV, and the school and Yearbook websites over the past few months, sometimes it takes talking in-person to get the message across. 

We have two messages for two different groups of seniors:

Message #1 (for seniors who already took their senior portrait):

The deadline to select your pose is Sunday, December 12, 2021.

You can select your pose from the link that Prestige Portrait Studios/Lifetouch sends you, or you might have been sent physical proofs in the mail.

If you don’t select your pose by that date, we’ll go with what’s listed as the “Default Choice,” which is the pose that the photographer thought was best.

Message #2 (for the few dozen seniors who haven’t taken their portraits, but who are interested in doing so before the deadline):

Make your appointment today

The absolute deadline for taking your portrait that we cannot push back (not even by one day) is Sunday, November 28th. If you don’t take your portrait through Prestige by that day, you will not be in the yearbook.

At this point, the Elk Grove studio is all booked up. When you go to make an appointment, you can check at the EG location of Prestige Portrait Studio just to see if there’s been a cancellation or some spots have opened up, but in the event that there are no options at Elk Grove, the next closest option is likely the Citrus Heights studio. 

There are very few slots available even in Citrus Heights, so if you want to be featured in the yearbook alongside your classmates, make your appointment now.

Cost: Remember that there is a free option for senior portraits! You won’t be able to see that option when you make an appointment online, so for now, when making an appointment, choose the basic/least expensive option, and then when you arrive at the studio, you can let them know that you want the free, yearbook-only portrait.

See Ms. Labi in HL-5 if you have any questions.

Senior Quotes

If you’d like to submit a senior quote, you can do so by filling out this Google Form by Sunday, November 28th.

Senior ads

If you would like to purchase a senior “ad” or tribute that appears in the back of the yearbook, you can learn how to do so here. The deadline to purchase an ad is Monday, January 3rd.

Senior superlatives

Senior superlatives are the part of the yearbook where seniors vote on the members of their class who are “most likely to ____.” If you’d like to weigh in with your votes, you can do so here by Sunday, November 14th.

Announcement in regards to Special Senior Events

It is unknown what events we will be able to hold this year due to the constantly changing conditions. These events include Senior Ball, Winter Theme Park trip, Spring Theme Park trip, and, of course, Graduation. As we move forward, we will keep you updated when we know more information if we can hold these events. We are still hoping to have them, but are unable to move forward until we get direction from state and local officials as to what is safe to do.


For more current information on upcoming events and senior updates, check your Synergy Mail to join the Senior Class "Band" community group.


Senior Paint Day
There will be a school wide paint day on August 21st, from 8:00am-Noon, with students from each class attending in groups of 40 (or less) at specific time intervals throughout the day.
