How do I get my pictures in the yearbook?
Email them to yearbook@monteschools.org.    We can't promise that every picture will get in, but we would love to see your pictures.  If we decide to use one of your pictures, we will contact you.  At that time, we would like you to remove it from the web- yes, facebook- until after the yearbook is released.
 
Until when can I order a yearbook?
We order a limited number of books each year, and sell them on a first come, first serve basis.  Yearbooks usually arrive the last week of May, and there are usually some for sale then, but no guarantees.  We suggest ordering as soon as possible in case we run out.

SENIOR PICTURES
Senior pictures MUST BE SUBMITTED BY Tuesday, January 7.
>>>>>>please email all digital photographs to- yearbook@monteschools.org
If you only have printed photos and are unable to scan them, please submit the printed photo to Lori Benedict.
You will receive a confirmation that we have received it and that it meets specifications.  If you do not receive a confirmation email within two business days of emailing your photo, please call Mr. Fornia @ 249.1672.

Specifications

Senior pictures should be no less than 300dpi (high-resolution) and must be at least 3" wide in .jpg format.  If you cannot get a .jpg, send us what you have, we can probably convert it.  We would prefer the original image taken by the camera or the LARGE touched-up version, even if it is very large.  IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A DIGITAL COPY OF THE PICTURE, please submit the printed photograph to Lori Benedict. 

 

>>>If we do not have a picture of your senior by January 9, we will use the LifeTouch picture taken for ASB cards.  If your student missed both picture days, we will photograph them at school on January 9.  If they are absent, they will not be in the yearbook. 

 
 
 
Senior Recognition Ads
 
We are only reserving 24 pages for senior ads, which will sell on a first-come, first-served basis.  Order your senior ad as soon as possible, and submit all required materials by Friday, February 14, 2014.   Ads must be paid for by the end of the year and you may arrange a deposit/payment system with Lori Benedict.  If you need additional time to get your photos/text ready, please contact Mr. Fornia at cfornia@monteschools.org so we can reserve a page for you.  If we have not been contacted by this date, the page in the yearbook will be dedicated to something else.  Late ordering is not possible in this situation because the number of pages in our book is predetermined and we cannot add pages later.
 
All payments must be submitted by graduation.  Payment options may be determined by you and Lori Benedict.
 
To order-
1- Bring in your order form (one was mailed to all senior parents in October) or pick up a new form at the high school from Lori Benedict.  Download a pdf version of the form here-
 
 
2- Submit your pictures to Lori Benedict.  Digital images may be on CD, flash drive, or SD card.  Printed images will be scanned by our yearbook staff and returned to Lori Benedict for your pickup.  We will contact you when they are ready. 
 
3- Email the text for your ad to yearbook@monteschools.org (preferred) -or- include the written/typed text with your images.
 

Senior Recognition Ads-     FULL PAGE (8.5 X11)   $200        HALF PAGE (8.5 X 5.5)  $125    

 

Senior Ads are sold at a significantly reduced cost from Jostens suggested price of $400/page.  We realize this is a great expense for families, but cannot sell the ads for less without losing money.  In the past, families have purchased ads as extended families, and some families have combined to purchase an ad for multiple students who are close friends- these ads still have plenty of pictures and look great.

 
We no longer offer online design for parents.  The system was complicated and did not allow background colors and other simple design options.  The online designer also required a much earlier deadline, which did not work for many families. 
 
We would love to design your student's ad for you, and we will use whatever input you give us.  We are able to use Microsoft Publisher files, PDFs, or other pre-designed ads, if you would like to submit your own design.
 
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE email monteyearbook@gmail.com or call MR. FORNIA at 249.1672
