Senior Photos and Grad Ads

Grad Ads

Grad Ads are due February 4th 2022. These are purchased by family members and often include things like baby photos and well wishes. Please see the form HERE ( Grad Ads Online 21-22.pdf) for prices and instructions.


If you have any questions or run into any issues, please reach out to Ms Schneider at or call at (425)844-4821.



What is the difference between a senior picture versus a Grad ad?

  • A senior picture is the photo that is used in the yearbook to identify the student, a Grad Ad is a part of the yearbook in which parents/friends/family can write well wishes for after high school and post photos (baby pictures, senior photos, etc).

Do senior photos cost money?

  • Senior photos do not cost money. They are free of charge. Senior Grad ads do cost money please visit the  Grad Ads Online 21-22.pdf for prices and instructions on how to do create an ad.


What happens if I miss the senior photo deadline on December 10th?

  • Yearbook will use the photo taken by Photography by Joy. If one from this year is not available, we may pull from previous years which means that it could be a photo from Junior year or earlier.


What happens if I miss the deadline for Grad ads on February 4th?

  • You wont have your ad in this year’s yearbook

What happens if my senior quote isn’t acceptable for yearbook?

  • If your quote is not appropriate it will not be put in the yearbook. Please review the guidelines thoroughly. We notify you if your quote will not be run, but you will not be given another opportunity to submit another.
