We have extended our deadlines for senior salute advertisements. There are two options for creating your senior ad. The first would be to send all of your information and photos to the yearbook staff and have them create it for you — a  proof of the ad before publishing.This option has a deadline of Monday, November 2, 2020. Here is the link for the senior salute contract.

    The second option is to create and pay for your ad directly through Jostens. This option has a deadline of Monday, November 16, 2020. Please keep in mind that we have LIMITED advertising space; it may be that we sell out of space before the deadline. Please turn in your contract EARLY. Payments for senior ads can be made by bringing the money to the school — Attention Ginger Ashford — or by paying online through Jostens. 

    Here is the link for Jostens, as well as step-by-step instructions to help along the way:  

    1. Click the link above.
    2. Scroll down and click Yearbook Recognition Ads
    3. Sign in or make an account.
    4. Type the name of your student.
    5. Then you have the option of picking from our different size ads. Click on the size you want and choose from the templates we have set up.
    6. Then you can upload images, drag the images in the blue boxes and type your message. (in the top right you can adjust the zoom of the page with the “+” and “-“ icons)
    7. Once you have finished designing your ad, click the “Preview and Buy” in the top right corner.

    Third, we are expanding the options for the senior portrait section this year, by adding “Senior Last Words.” In addition to the traditional senior quote, seniors can instead opt to create a more personalized “last word” by choosing one of our six “sentence stems” to answer. You can choose ONE of the yearbook sentence stems to answer OR you can choose a traditional senior quote. Please understand that ALL “Last words” must be school appropriate, and if you choose the traditional quote option, you MUST also provide a credible website link so we can verify the quote accuracy and the author. Failure to do either one of these things will result in the space under your portrait picture to be blank. Here is the link for submitting the “Senior Last Words”-- the deadline is November 2, 2020.

    We know it has been a rocky start to your senior year, but the staff at Bob Jones is focused on producing the best yearbook possible. If you have any questions please email Ginger Ashford at ggashford@madisoncity.k12.al.us 


    What do I need to know about the 2020-2021 Yearbook? 

    For the 2020-2021 school year, Bob Jones WILL have a yearbook. As always, we will be highlighting the school year. Unlike usual, the stories of this year might look a little different. We will focusing on our “new normal” and highlight the stories of individual students and teachers. 

    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 BobJonesYearbook2021@gmail.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. 

    What about my school picture? When will that occur?  

    Bob Jones High School will conduct school pictures for both in-person and virtual, 9th through 11th grade, students in November. In-person students will have their photo taken November 4 during the 3rd Block lunch period. Classes will be scheduled to provide the most social distancing possible, and masks will only be taken off for a few seconds for the photograph. Virtual students will have their photo taken November 6 from 9 a.m. to nooon at CrossPointe Church, 78 Hughes Road. If your student cannot attend either of these sessions, there will be a make-up date for both virtual and in-person students on December 8 at Bob Jones High School. The make-up date time will be from 11:43 a.m. until 1:43 p.m. and will be held in the large gym of the high school. For more information, please contact Greg Machen Photography at 256-461-0827.

    How do I order a yearbook? 

    Finally, if you still need to order a yearbook, please know that we are 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. Also, Josten’s has a payment plan available on their website for those who need extra time to pay for the yearbook.
