If you ordered a yearbook in May or June, they are now at school in the office available for pick-up. Please stop by Mondays through Thursdays between 8:00 and 4:00 pm to get yours (closed for lunch from 12-1). About 20 extras are on hand for purchase if you did not order one; please bring exact cash ($15) or check to CRES, since we don't have change. You can also pick yours up at the August Open House.
