photos must be taken during the summer of junior year, by August 23, in order
to ensure entry into the senior photos section of the yearbook. Senior photos

e-mailed by the professional photographer, in high quality JPG format only, to the
yearbook advisor, PaulaMadore@BPSma.org, by September 23. The following sections
apply to all seniors.
Photographs Submitted for Other Sections of the Yearbook
September during morning announcements, the yearbook staff will invite seniors
to bring in one baby photo of 2 years or under and may request other
candid photos. Photos will be scanned and returned to the student at the time
they are brought in to be scanned. Students are responsible to show their
official BHS ID to the yearbook staff member for correct spelling of his or her
name. Students should listen carefully to announcements during the fall for
other invitations to contribute to the 2017 yearbook. Like us today on Facebook: Brockton High School Yearbook. Get more announcements on Twitter:
remember that candid photos must meet special requirements: Photos must
be clear, not cut and appropriate. Do not write on the back of photographs.
hear students say that a wider variety of students should be included in the
yearbook, and the yearbook staff agrees with that. The problem occurs when few
students submit candid photos leaving the yearbook staff with only a few photos
from which to choose. When announcements are made, seniors, and you have
pictures that you think would be good in the yearbook, please bring them the
next day and within the announced deadline. The yearbook staff has publisher
deadlines to meet and has no control over extending those deadlines.
ad and Business ad space is available.
Contact someone on the yearbook staff for the proper forms.
Yearbook office is located in the hallway between the Azure and Green building,
just outside the doors to the Azure cafeteria. If you need additional
information, please e-mail us at TheYearbookBHS@gmail.com or come to room B333
during your lunch or at 2 p.m.
FOR ORDERING YOUR YEARBOOK AND EXTENDED EDITION
Yearbooks may be ordered online by the beginning of September at www.JostensYearbooks.com. Students are encouraged to order the yearbook and Extended Edition
at the presale price by February 28 so we know how many to order. The price
will be announced the beginning of September. Yearbook announcements about
ordering the yearbook are stated via the PA system but always check
with your homeroom teacher for handouts, especially if you have first period
senior privileges. No money will be collected in homeroom. Yearbooks are
distributed at BHS approximately the last week of senior year; the
supplement is mailed the following fall to all graduates who purchase a
yearbook. If you move after the first day of your senior year, you are
responsible to contact us of your change of address or you may not receive your
supplement. Students may pay by cash-in-advance for the yearbook by
bringing cash in the full amount to B333 during lunch beginning September 2,
2016. You will receive a receipt. Buying the yearbook in advance guarantees you
will have a yearbook. BHS does not order a yearbook for every
senior because unsold books are nonrefundable to the school, so please take
advantage of pre-ordering on time.
The yearbook staff is not allowed to submit yearbook pages to the publisher
after February 28. Because there are several activities between March and
graduation, the supplement is included in the yearbook price. The supplement
contains photos from graduation day, senior prom, spring play, Harbor One Art
Show, senior week, boys’ and girls’ tennis, baseball, softball, and boys’
volleyball. Seniors are strongly encouraged to purchase a yearbook so they
receive a yearbook supplement mailed to them in the fall.
the last week of senior year, seniors may still be able to purchase a book at
the yearbook office until the supply runs out, but at a higher price than the
presale price. There is a limited supply of yearbooks sold through the BHS
yearbook office in May and they are sold on a first come, first served basis.
Yearbooks make perfect birthday and holiday gifts for your children. Please
consider purchasing the Brockton High School yearbook for your child as a
lifetime of memories your child will remember for many years.
