The 2011-2012 St. Gregory yearbook will be on sale January 17th through February 3rd. The cost of the book is $50.
Don’t miss the opportunity to purchase this important keepsake of the school year. The 2011-2012 St. Gregory School yearbook is in FULL COLOR and is packed full of the memories you never want to forget. We have increased the book to 200 pages this year, including a special insert that will feature the events that take place in April and May such as First Communion, Confirmation, Academic Awards, Elocution, and May Crowning.
Save $15 by ordering NOW! Our publishing company requires that we submit our book order by February 3rd. Having a pre-sale allows us to order enough books in advance, and guarantees that your copy will be reserved for you. Yes, we will order some extra copies for those last minute purchases, but there is no guarantee that a yearbook will be available unless you order by February 3rd. Once the pre-sale is over, a limited number of “extra” books will be available to purchase on a first come first serve basis, but the price will increase to $65 per copy and your check will be returned if we run out of books… no exceptions!
An order form and payment envelope will be coming home with your child this week. Please detach the envelope and return it to school, with your payment of $50 cash or check (payable to St. Gregory School) by February 3rd. This is the only way to guarantee that a copy is reserved for you. Please note: If sending your payment after February 3rd, payment must be increased to $65 per book. Your check will be returned if we run out of yearbooks.
Yearbooks will be delivered to the students at the end of the school year.
