Pre-order your Yearbook now!
Captured any special moments from this year?! We need your help!
We need your help! We are looking for great photos that you may have taken this year. We are currently putting together our yearbook for Pike Road Schools. If you have any great shots that includes three or more PRS students, we are asking you to upload these pictures to our yearbook photos website. If you click on the link below, you will be taken to a folder that the lead learners can access as they design their pages. From that page you can click add images and select photos from there, or you can simply drag and drop photos into that web based folder. We appreciate your help in this endeavor! We are excited about the yearbook, and we are so thankful for your help.
Please note that yearbooks will be on sale when we return from Spring Break. The cost of a yearbook is $55, but if you purchase before April 11, the cost is only $45. You will be able to pay online or send in cash or check with the student.
You can find the link to upload photos here: C2 Link: http://lpx.me/KR8V-YRU6-98GC/
