Senior Information

From Sharon Cook, Yearbook Advisor

509-483-8511 ext. 410 email: scook@gprep.com


Senior pictures are due to the school by September 15th.  This means that you should have your pictures taken by July 15th and ordered by August 15th.  Ask the studio you are working with to send your picture on a CD to the school or emailed to scook@gprep.com.  It should be a color, head and shoulder pose, with an 8 x 10 crop.  Record it at 300 dpi and save as a .jpg file as:  Last name,First name.jpg.  Due to the resolution of cell phone and iPad photos, we are not able to use them for your senior picture. The picture you submit will be used as the yearbook and composite picture for the hallway.


Senior Yearbook Ads
Parents have an opportunity to give their senior a lasting memory by placing a parent message to them in their yearbook. The cost of the parent message goes toward funding yearbook computers, our cover, and additional pages. Some possibilities for what could be included are a congratulations statement, part of a poem or a song, and/or pictures. Your student’s first and last name should be included in the message. We reserve the right to edit due to lack of space or content.

The four ad sizes and prices are listed below:
Size Measurements (approx) Price What can fit into the space
1/8 page 3 inches x 4 inches $50 1 picture up to 25 words 
¼ page 4 ¼ inches x 5 ½ inches $75 Up to 4 pictures, up to 25 words
½ page 5 ½ inches x 8 ½ inches $125 Up to 6 pictures, up to 50 words
1 page 8 ½ inches x 11 inches $200 Up to 10 pictures, up to 75 words

By October 1, you should email the size you want to Mrs. Cook at scook@gprep.com or call her at 483-8511, Ext. 421. A link on the Gonzaga Prep website will be made available in September. It contains a link to download the program, Pictavo, where all ads are to be created. You will be able to create, customize, purchase, and submit your ad electronically. If you have a professional make your ad for you, they will also be able to submit it through this program. If you want the yearbook class to put your ad together for you, just submit pictures and type along with the payment to Mrs. Cook and the class will put it together. All ads should be submitted by November 1.
