We appreciate and commend our Warhawks for exhibiting the characteristics of our NEST! Parents, please continue to encourage our Warhawks to show up each day ready to be Noble, Excellent, Supportive and Thoughtful.


Students "caught" in the act of one or more of the characteristics have an opportunity to be recognized by a staff member with a "nest egg." Students turn in their nest eggs for a bracelet and an opportunity raffle. Great prizes are awarded in regular drawings.

CLASS OF 2022 - SENIORS!

Senior Portraits - Class of 2022

Prestige Portraits took senior photographs for Madison High School students during the summer here on campus but some students did not get photographed. In order to appear in the yearbook, you must have a senior portrait taken. Purchasing a photo package is optional but if you just want a yearbook photo, your session is FREE.

Option 1 – I want to book a session that has more than one background or outfit.

This must be done at the studio (in-studio appointment). There are different fees for this.

Please use the QR code on this flier or go to prestigeportraits.com to schedule an appointment immediately.

Option 2 – I want to book a session just for my yearbook photo. You can make an in-studio appointment for just a yearbook pose (they provide the shirt and coat or sash) or you can wait until Prestige comes on campus again in November 15-19. Appointments will be available soon.

Need assistance? Mrs. Fuller, room 210, lreeves@sandi.net
