The clock is ticking for yearbook orders
All students wishing to order a yearbook must do so before Mar. 1 in order to receive a discounted rate.
The $60 rate is a special incentive for students to order early. On March 1, it will be raised to $65.
“The yearbook is a very expensive book to make,” yearbook sponsor Mrs. Kristy Roschke said. “This year’s book is going to cost us about $68,000, so we pay off the price of the book by selling the book, and so we start off at $60 every year to give those people who buy the book over the summer or earlier in the year, it’s incentive to buy them earlier because it’s cheaper. Then, once we get toward the end of the year, that incentive goes away.”
All students are encouraged to buy a yearbook.
“Students should buy a yearbook because it’s your memories of your high school years,” senior and yearbook staff member Hannah Mure said. “Even if, say, you’re only in your class photo, well, you still have friends and you still want your end-of-the year message. It’s just good to have.”
Personalization is another option offered by the yearbook staff.
“We’re still offering personalization, your name on the front of the book, and, we’re actually doing a discounted rate; $3, instead of $5, for seniors.” Mure said.
However, students must act fast because the number of yearbooks is limited.
“We have ordered a total of 1,200, so that’s all we get,” Mrs. Roschke said. “There are like 1,700 kids who go to this school, so, automatically, there are 500 kids who don’t get a yearbook, no matter what. We want to sell all 1,200.”
Students should give their orders and cash, or check made out to Sunrise Mountain, to the bookstore to purchase a yearbook.
