Seniors taking College Visits

 

Students taking school leave for college visits must obtain a school leave form from Guidance, have it signed by each teacher PRIOR to going on the visit and turn the form in to Mrs. Craig in Attendance. Then, obtain a signed letter on college letterhead identifying the date and time of the visit. Turn this in to Mrs. Craig in Attendance after the visit. If the absence is not approved before the visit and/or the letter from the college is not turned in, the absence will not be excused.

 

 

 

Updated Yearbook Information as of 12-16-2019

 

Senior Recognition Ads

The FWBHS Yearbook staff mailed postcards home just before the Thanksgiving Break with a link to a Jostens (our yearbook company) on which you can pay for and create your own recognition ad. A team at Jostens will edit and place the ad in our book electronically.

If you would like some in-person guidance designing your child’s recognition ad for the yearbook, we will host two parent nights on Monday, January 13th and Thursday, January 16th in our computer lab (Room 304) from 6pm to 8pm. Our Yearbook designers will be there to assist you. Bring the following:

  • a credit card (or the access to your online account if you have already purchased a yearbook)
  • any photos you want to use in the ad saved on a flash drive
  • your child’s single sign-on information for our campus computers

If you do not want to design your child’s senior recognition ad, your third option is to have the yearbook staff students create it. Just send the message and photos to the yearbook staff at fwbhsyearbook@gmail.com.

Senior Recognition Ad deadline is February 1st. The postcards had a December date on them, but February 1st is the official deadline; however, there is a limited number of pages set aside for senior and business ads, and once all of the pages are taken, we will be out of space. As of the week before Christmas, we have sold about 50% of the ad pages. Please don’t wait until the end.

Yearbooks

Yearbooks will be $85 until after the holidays. You can purchase in person with cash or check at school or online at Jostensyearbooks.com or MySchoolBucks.com.

Senior Cap and Gown Pictures

Once the GPA for the Class of 2020 is determined based on grades from first semester, students will have cap and gown photos taken in their correct colors for graduation on January 27 and 28 during English class (or a study hall or a no class). Caps and gowns for the photos will be provided by the photographer. Only honors graduates will be featured in the yearbook, but everyone will have the photograph taken for parents to purchase.

Club and Organization Group Photos

Attention all students and club sponsors, group photos for all campus clubs and organizations will be taken on January 29 and January 30. Please be prepared with your club shirt, officers, and membership by those dates. Sponsors will receive an email with a schedule for those two days.
