Yearbook Distribution Day Information

The Cat’s Paw Yearbook staff is excited to announce that distribution day is almost here! Here are some things you need to know:

Yearbook distribution day will be Tuesday, May 15, 2018. We DO NOT give books out early nor can friends pick up your books for you. In order to get your yearbook, you will need to come to the designated table in the cafeteria during your ILT with your ID badge. Students are not to be dismissed from class to pick up their book. They can only come during their ILTs.

Students who are absent May 15-  The Cat’s Paw staff will also be in the cafeteria, the day after distribution day, May 16th , during your ILT. After this day, books will be in the main office.

Parents: Should you need to pick up a book for your child, you may come to the front office with your photo ID on May 15 and we will have a staffer bring the book to you. Should parents come after May 15th, book pickup will only be available Monday-Friday from 2:10-3:00. You may come to the front office, or your student can come by room C106 during this time. We WILL NOT be giving out books before May 15th.

Faculty and Staff:  If you ordered a yearbook for your child, the book will be at the faculty table under your name. Your child may come pick it up from there with their ID badge.

Students are not to be dismissed from class to pick up their book. They can only come during their ILTs.

Almost sold out! With only 30 yearbooks left we are almost sold out! This means there may not be any books left to sell on distribution day, so do not wait! To guarantee you have a yearbook order on jostens.com as soon as possible. If we happen to have any copies on sale distribution day, it will be $90 cash or check made payable to LHS. It will be first come first serve that day (no reserving books).

Check if you have ordered a book: An updated list has been posted outside of room C106. If your name IS on the list you HAVE ordered a book. For further information contact 821-3425 or email lhsyearbook@lexington1.net .

Attention Junior Families:

The LHS Counseling Department is hosting a College Planning Night on Monday, April 23 at 7:00pm in the LOPAC.

We will be discussing the logistics of applying to college. Topic will include- College Application Essays, College Visits, SAT/ACT Information, Summer Experiences, Senior Year course options, Scholarships and Financial Aid, GPA/Class Rank, and college entrance requirements.

This will be an informative session you do not want to miss! If you are unable to attend the meeting, the presentation will be posted on our website for your review.

We hope to see you on the 23rd!!
