Class of 2022 Announcement

YEARBOOK SENIOR ADS

Attention parents of seniors. Now is the time to recognize your senior by placing a baby ad in the upcoming yearbook! The easiest way to do this is by going to www.balfour.com and searching for Biglerville High School and then typing in your student's name and grade. There you can order a yearbook and/or place an ad! If you have any questions, please contact Lisa Harman l.harman@upperadams.org


The theme for the yearbook this year is, "take it back." We would like to share the senior's first years in school by adding a photo of them when they were in kindergarten or at another early age. Parents of seniors, please email this photo of your senior to Lisa Harman or send the photo to school with your child, and Mrs. Harman will scan it and return it. Thank you to the students who have already brought in their photos!
