Unlock Your Future:  The Key to Scholarships Seminar

Date: Monday, October 28th, 2019

Time: 6:30pm

Place:  Handsworth

Admission: By optional donation

Join Brittany Palmer of Unlock your Future as she leads students and parents through a step-by-step program for navigating the scholarship process. Students in all grades and parents are welcome and encouraged to attend: it is never too early to get started. This comprehensive presentation covers topics ranging from building your scholarship foundation to crafting a strong personal statement. Contrary to popular belief, students do not need 95% averages or international achievements to win scholarships. Through this seminar, Brittany debunks common scholarship myths and breaks down the complex process into a manageable form. Using this program, Brittany and her younger brother Bo collectively won 35 scholarships totaling over $125,000. Since 2005, she has shared her story and strategies with tens of thousands of students, parents and educators. The Unlock your Future Scholarship Workbook ($25) and Scholarship Kit ($30), which are accompaniments to the program, will be available for purchase. Through this dynamic and informative presentation, Brittany demonstrates that scholarships are indeed possible.

YEARBOOK INFORMATION FOR 2020 GRADS


YEARBOOK INFORMATION FOR 2020 GRADS

PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY!

The information here is non-negotiable and all deadlines must be met – no exceptions.

Late submissions for anything will not be included.

Email all submissions to: hssyearbook2020@gmail.com

Be sure to submit to the correct email address – several students last year sent their content to the wrong email address with a typo and were not included. 

  1. Grad Write-Ups and Baby Pictures are optional.
  2. You only get a Grad Write-Up in the Yearbook if you have had a proper Grad Photo in a gown taken at Artona.
  3. If you do not get a proper Grad Photo with a gown, your Go-Card Picture will be used.
  4. Grad Write-Ups and Baby Pictures for the Yearbook are due January 15th, 2020. No late submissions will be included.
  5. Grad Write-Ups can be a maximum of 400 characters including spaces, punctuation, letters, and numbers (NOTE – that is 400 characters, NOT 400 words).  Your Write-Up CANNOT have any abbreviations, initials, slang, social media handles/websites, bullying, innuendos, or anything that is inappropriate for a school publication.  If you try to include anything that is not appropriate for a school publication, you do not get to have a Grad Write-Up – it will simply not be included and you will not have a chance to resubmit. 
  6. You have one submission – you cannot submit a Grad Write-Up and then change or resubmit it – this causes too much chaos and unnecessary work for the Yearbook team.
  7. Edit your Grad Write-Up and have several people proof-read it!  It will be in print forever!
  8. Baby Pictures must be submitted as a high-resolution jpeg.  If you are scanning a picture, make sure that you crop it and submit it in the proper orientation.
  9. Submit your Grad Write-Up and Baby Picture TOGETHER IN THE SAME EMAIL. In the subject line, include your full name.
  10. Grad group shot will be taken at lunch on Tuesday, March 3rd at 12:50 pm in the Gallery. There will only be one group shot taken this year – if you are not there, you will not be included.
  11. PLEASE get your Grad Photo taken between December 18 to 22, 2019 during the times set aside for Handsworth Graduates. These dates are published in the school calendar. If you need retakes, this must be done by Friday, January 31, 2020 and you will pay an additional sitting fee.  
  12. SHARE THIS INFO WITH ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS!! Too many late submissions did not get included last year.
  13. There are 2 sections to the Grad section of the Yearbook – make sure you read this carefully so that you know where you will be placed in the book.  See over.

There will be no exceptions made for students in terms of where they are placed in the Yearbook. You will be placed based on what you submit. Come see Ms. Desfosses in Room 106 for clarification.

A)  If you have had a proper Grad Photo in a gown, you will be included alphabetically like this:

If no Write-Up is received, yearbook staff will provide a message that will appear instead.

B)  If you have NOT had a proper Grad Photo in a gown, you will be included alphabetically like this with your Go-Card Picture (after those in the previous section)
