Yearbook Information for 2021 Grads

Please read this carefully!

Pre-order your 2020-2021 Yearbook prior to January 31, 2021 by purchasing it through your 'Cash-On-Line' account HERE. 

The information here is non-negotiable and all deadlines must be met - no exceptions.  Late submissions for anything will not be concluded.

  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.  Get your Grad Photo taken between December 14 - 17, 2020 at Artona Studios.  Students must book appointments online with Artona by clicking HERE.
  3. If you do not get a proper Grad Photo with a gown, your School ID Card Picture will be used with no Grad Write-Up.
  4. Grad Write-Ups and Baby Pictures for the Yearbook are due Friday, January 29th, 2021. 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. PLEASE get your Grad Photo taken between December 14 - 17, 2020 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 February 5, 2021 and you will pay an additional sitting fee.
  10. SHARE THIS INFO WITH ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS!!!  Too many late submissions did not get included last year.
  11. 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.
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. Please contact Ms. Scott-Desfosses for clarification.
A.  If you have had a proper Grad Photo in a gown, you will be included alphabetically like this:
