There are two important things to remember when it comes to the Excalibur Yearbook in January -- the deadline to purchase senior ads is coming up and the deadline to order personalized yearbooks in school is coming up. Both deadlines are the same: Friday, January 29th.
To purchase a SENIOR AD, click on the link below that will take you to the order form. We need an order form for every senior ad, whether you pay for it here in school or on line. The printed order form is how we keep track of sales.
Remember, new this year is the option to pay for the ad online with a credit card. We still need the order form, but you now have payment options. Here in school we can accept personal checks or cash. And now you can order on line with a credit or debit card. To pay on line, click on the link below that will take you to the Balfour website. Look for the yearbook ads link on the lefthand side
Lots of people like order PERSONALIZED YEARBOOKS with the student's names, perhaps a quote, or saying and some icons to represent the activities they're involved in. Here at school, we will stop taking personalized orders at the end of January. That gives us time to process all the orders. Online, using the link above, you can continue to order personalized books on the Balfour website until Friday, February 26th.
