Senior Portraits

Next week Senior Portraits begin. You should have received a postcard from Lifetouch Prestige Portraits with your unique student ID number to schedule your appointment on their website If you didn't get a postcard you can contact them to get an ID number at 1-800-445-1189 or email them at

You can purchase your senior pictures through Lifetouch or just get a picture taken for the Yearbook/ student ID card at no cost. Please make your online appointment ASAP though. You previously received an email from Mrs.Arney about how to submit your own portrait for the yearbook. There are strict requirements for your submission, please follow her instructions. Contact Mrs. Arney if you have any questions.

 Senior Dues

There is a $40 cost for senior dues this year. This cost is associated with graduation. It will cover the cost of your cap, gown, tassel, diploma, diploma cover, and costs for graduation. You can pay online through the parent online payment portal on the SHS website. If you have a financial hardship you may contact the school to seek a fee waiver.

 Cap, Gown, and Announcements for Graduation!!!!

All ordering of cap, gown and announcements will be done online. You can go to Jostens website and begin ordering your items now. Any package deal that Jostens offers comes with a cap and gown BUT the price does not charge for a cap and gown since your senior dues pays that cost. The package price is without the price of a cap and gown. You can order any items you wish from Jostens. If you prefer you can just order a cap and gown and buy no additional products from Jostens. Please order soon as prices for some Jostens products do go up as the year goes on.      

 Yearbooks and Senior Ads

Our Herff Jones online yearbook order center is now open. Visit to order your 2020-2021 yearbook. Our school code is 4516.  Senior ads will be available for design and purchase from October 1st-November 1st (or until space runs out). Ads will be designed and paid for online this year through our Herff Jones order center. 

 Senior T-shirt

We will have our Senior T-shirt and the pink Spirit shirt this year. I need students to submit original artwork for the Senior t-shirt. PLEASE, we need artwork submitted. Email me your color image (blue, yellow, and black may be used) ASAP. In order for us to have shirts next month we need the designs now. Once t-shirts have been made they will be mailed to your home.

 Senior Remind

Less than half of you have signed up for the Senior Remind texts. Please sign up so I am able to include you in information. I know you may not always check your school email after school hours, but I can still get information to you.

 As this week is interim for the 1st rating period please make sure that you are putting effort into your courses, especially those necessary for you to graduate. I hope you all stay safe and healthy and if you have questions about activities or graduation please reach out to me. Take care and have a great day.
