SVHS El Padre Yearbook

  • We are excited to announce a new senior portrait photographer, Prestige Portraits. Prestige is the exclusive photographer for the formal photos that appear in the yearbook and the Index-Tribune. (If you are interested in a more extensive senior portrait photo session, we highly recommend Moon Valley Studio. However, note that we will only accept formal senior portraits from Prestige for the yearbook.)

    We've answered some questions you may have about senior portraits on our Senior Portrait page.

  • The deadline for Senior Ads/Senior Pages was Sat. 16 February. If you missed it, you have one final chance to get a senior ad in for your student.

    The yearbook staff can accept ads through Feb. 20. We charge a $100 late fee, in addition to the price of the ad. This is non-negotiable.

    To take advantage of this, you must do the following two things before 3 pm on Wed., 20 February:

    1. Email a JPG of your completed ad to nsnider AT
    2. Drop off a check for your ad size plus $100 for the late fee at the front office and make sure it is sent to Mrs. Snider in room H16.

    If we receive both pieces by 3 pm on Wed. 20 February, we can run the ad. If they arrive any later than 3 pm that day or later that week, then, unfortunately, we will not be able to run the ad in this year's yearbook.
