Seniors, it's time to order your graduation items now! These items include graduation announcements, class jewelry, senior keepsakes, and most importantly your cap and gown. Due to current government restrictions and rising Covid cases in the area, we will not be able to host our annual campus order options so Jostens is opening up the option to order online at Jostens.com or through their office in Poway. If you have any questions, please call our local Jostens office at 858-486-2020, or email our Jostens rep at mark.boyer@jostens.com. Place your orders now!
