Pre-order the CES 2015-2016 yearbook today! The cost is only $30. There are 225 yearbooks available this year, so be sure and order yours if you want to guarantee your child's copy!

This year, we are offering yearbook personalization. You can have your child's name embossed on the front cover for $5, but only until January 16. After that, you can still pre-order a yearbook, but personalization will no longer be an option.

Just click the following link to get started:
