Senior Class of 2024 and Parents/Guardians

Each year, the yearbook staff reserves space for Baby Ads in the yearbook. This space is used as a way for parents and guardians to send off their seniors with a note of encouragement and wisdom as they enter life post high school. The cost for an ad is $40, and they are fully optional.

The deadline for Baby Ads is January 15th, 2024, and you will find instructions to submit the senior ad in the attached google slideshow. Everything is done electronically at yearbookforever.com. If it seems like something is missing or not working, please check if anything has been blocked. If you have questions, please send an email to Elle Barts at ebarts@lps.org.
