Kiss/Hug the Seniors Goodbye - Wish you could send a goodbye wish to a Fowlerville High School Senior? The Freshman at FHS are once again sponsoring the Kiss/Hug the Seniors Goodbye Fundraiser. The Kiss/Hug notes can be picked up in any of the high school offices. Theses notes are an opportunity to give a senior well wishes for the future, words of advice, favorite quotes, or just a special note from you! You can purchase a kiss or hug note (includes a Hershey’s kiss). Each note costs $1 and includes a Hershey Kiss. You can add extra Kisses for 25 cents each. All notes are due back to the high school main office by Friday, May 24th. These notes will be delivered to the seniors on Friday, May 31st during graduation rehearsal. The proceeds of the fundraiser will go towards the class of 2022 senior lock-in. We are encouraging parents, siblings, local business owners, teachers, coaches, and friends to get involved, and send a note to a senior. Help support the class of 2022 and help send our seniors off right! Businesses can send a message to all graduates at a discounted price. Contact Mrs. Tomassi at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Senior Picture Information for Yearbook
2019 Senior Picture Information for Yearbook
Hopefully you and your child have made the arrangements for senior portraits to be taken. In order to make that happen as smoothly as possible, we have provided all necessary information regarding senior pictures.
You can have your senior pictures photography done at any studio. However, with the influx of digital photography and amateur photographers, we are getting some disproportionate and discolored senior photos that do not reproduce well in the yearbook. Just because someone owns a digital camera does not mean they take quality senior photos. Please make sure you have your picture done by a reputable professional. Local photographers who support the yearbook by purchasing advertising are:
Carrie Montrose Photography, Studio M Portraits, Ignited Photography, Kayla’s Shots by Design, Patterson Photography, Frazzinni Photography, Brian Blostica Photography, Melinda Hope Photography, and SBS Photography.
Please look in the advertising section of this year’s yearbook for contact information. There are other professional photographers in the area as well, and pricing can be obtained from them.
Here are the specifications photographers need:
Color: Color or Black and White
Props/Hands: Acceptable in photos
Digital File Format: minimum of 300dpi, JPEG or TIFF
Head Size: 1-1 ½ inch from top of hair to chin
Overall Photo Size: 4 x 4 Or 4x5 inches
Photographers should submit digital photos on CD or through email (preferred) at: FHSyearbook@fowlervilleschools.org If the picture is emailed, a return email confirmation will come back within 48 hours once school resumes If you do not receive an email, the picture did not go through.
ALL SENIOR portraits are due by JANUARY 15, 2019.
For the class composite, if your child DOES NOT send in a head and shoulder shot for the yearbook, please send in one labeled COMPOSITE to be used. (The class composite is the pictures you see in the hallways of the graduating seniors from year to year). These are traditional head and shoulder portraits.
If you plan on having your child use their school picture for the yearbook photo, please fill out the following info below and return it to the office by January 16, 2018, or email the yearbook staff.
Senior Yearbook Ads
Senior Yearbook ADS
Dear Parents of Seniors,
The yearbook staff would like to give you the opportunity to purchase a section in the back of our 2018-2019 yearbook in order to send a special message to your son/daughter. In your message, you can congratulate your child on his/her graduation, send encouraging words for the future, or just express how proud you are of him/her. You may also choose to include a picture or two (senior, baby, childhood, etc.). You can make your child’s senior year even more memorable with a personalized message in his/her yearbook. The deadline to submit your order is December 3rd, 2018. The yearbook staff did have to turn parents away last year because we had too many ads and not enough space. The sooner you send in your information and payment, the better. Please return the bottom of this sheet with a check payable to Fowlerville Community Schools or cash. Also, make sure that your child’s first and last name is on the back of the picture if you wish for it to be returned to you. Digital photos in JPEG format are preferred, recommended, and can be emailed at the address below. Wallet sizes of senior photos are acceptable.
1/8 AD with 1 picture: $45.00
