Otter Wishes – DEADLINE: Friday DEC 1st

Dear Fifth Grade Parents,

Each year we send our 5th graders off to middle school with “Otter Wishes” in our yearbook. The yearbook committee is now collecting these wishes for publication in this year’s yearbook.

The “ad” will be put into a standard format so that all you need to submit is the message and/or picture(s). They will be located in the back of the yearbook and can contain one or two photograph(s) and a message perhaps congratulating the student on graduation, a specific achievement, or just general well wishes.

The cost is $10 and we can allow only one ad per child. table for number of words and pictures. Ads and payment must be received by Friday, December 1st 2017. No exceptions can be made as we have deadline obligations with the yearbook company. All formatting and sizing of pictures and text will be done by the yearbook staff.
