Yearbook Information

Senior Portrait Submission Guidelines and Procedures

Portraits submitted to the WHS yearbook to use in place of the Lifetouch portrait must be in one of the following formats:

  • Computer disc
  • USB drive
  • Printed portrait

We will not accept e-mailed photos.

The WHS yearbook will not be accepting “selfies” as senior portraits. This includes photos taken by the student of themselves with cellular phones, cameras, or any other device.

If a student was not present for the August or October (future date) Lifetouch portrait days and does not have an acceptable alternative portrait to submit, the student may speak with Ms. Phelps, the yearbook advisor, about having a WHS yearbook staff member take their portrait to place in the yearbook.

Providing Portraits to Yearbook

Please complete the contact slip before delivering portraits to yearbook. Students may drop off portraits with Mrs. Phelps in room H105 during advisory/power hour before school or after school. Students must have a pass from their advisory/power hour teacher when they drop off their portraits in addition to a completed contact slip. If you have any questions, you may contact Karen Phelps.

The senior portrait submission deadline is Friday, November 18, 2016. Please see Mrs. Phelps in H105 for more information. We will not accept senior portraits after this date.

Grad Night

Attention, parents of seniors! The grad night committee is holding their second meeting on Wednesday, October 26 at 6:30 p.m. in the Wickenburg High School cafeteria.

Grad night is the party the parents of seniors put on following the graduating ceremony. We know that for many of you the first meeting took place on short notice, but hopefully this next meeting will give everyone adequate time to schedule us in. We had about 19 parents show up to our last meeting with many great ideas. Come join us to give your ideas, see what we have planned, help out where you can, and involve yourself in doing something great and memorable for your senior. 

If you have any questions or want to receive a text message reminder of upcoming grad night meetings, please contact Sarah Mattox at (928) 671-0396.
