Another school year has begun, and it is time to order your 2015-2016 Nichols yearbook. Yearbooks are a fun way to remember all those special memories that happen throughout the school year. The yearbook will be a hardcover book with lots of fun pictures of students, staff, and special events. The price for the yearbook will be $25.00.

Below you will find the link to order a yearbook for your child, and there is no need to input a customer number. You will simply select the state, city and the school name to begin ordering. After purchasing you will receive an email notification confirming your purchase. Please save this for your records. Yearbooks will not be distributed until the end of the school year. Thank you for ordering a Nichols yearbook!
