What do I need to know about the 2021-2022 Yearbook?
How do I order a yearbook?
We are using Josten’s publisher again this year -- Josten's. We will also be exclusively using Jostens website for ALL SALES. The Bob Jones school site will NOT be used to order a yearbook. The Jostens site provides an excellent level of secure online ordering, as well as the availability to personalize your student’s yearbook with a name and/or extra curricular icons. In addition, you will receive an email verifying your yearbook sale, in order to reduce the number of “double” yearbook sales. Below is the pricing for the yearbooks — please notice that yearbook prices are lowest at the beginning of the year. Also, Josten’s has a payment plan available on their website for those who need extra time to pay for the yearbook.
Just go to jostens.com to order your yearbook.

- Back to School: August 4 – Sept. 17 Price: $65

What if I want to buy a senior salute/advertisement in the yearbook?
Senior salutes/advertisements are now available for sale until December 10, 2021, or until space runs out. Pricing is listed below. We have a LIMITED number of ads available, once we run out of ad space, you will not be able to purchase. For example, we had 34 pages of senior ads last year, and we sold out of that space BEFORE the deadline to submit. Please make sure you are buying an ad as soon as possible. Payments for senior ads can be made by bringing the money to the school — Attention Ginger Ashford — or by paying online through Jostens.

Or you can design your own ad on Jostens.com website. If you use the Jostens online ad creation, you MUST have your ad created and finalized by December 17, 2021.
What if I took some photos of a Bob Jones event or student?
We will be asking for parents, students and coaches to help us with coverage this year by sending in photos. We have a special email set up for those who want to send in pictures of Bob Jones students and activities. That email is email@example.com When you send in photos, please name the photo with the event it is covering (i.e. footballpractice.jpeg.) You must ALSO send in the first and last names of everyone in the photo and who took the photo. We cannot use a photo without both of these items. Any other information — game scores, special circumstances, etc. are greatly appreciated. Please send the photos on the highest resolution possible — at least 300 dpi.
For any other information or questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
