Capture the memories with Digital Yearbook Signing Pages!

One of the best parts about the yearbook experience is the notes and signatures from friends. Now, with Digital Yearbook Signing Pages, all students have the opportunity to take part in that tradition with a fun, free, interactive experience that results in a permanent keepsake.

It’s free to all students and is a great way to bring our school community together and remember this historic school year!

Check out this video to see how it works. Get started today at!

You don’t need a yearbook to join in the fun of digital signing, but if you want you own yearbook you can order one for $30 at

Remind your child to charge their device!
