Do not buy a yearbook unless you need multiple copies - one is included with your graduation dues.

On the yearbook site, you may also buy and design a quarter, half or full page ad to celebrate your graduate! In the past, these ads have included things like family & pet photos, friend group pictures, student artwork etc. in addition to a message from you. Ads print in all students' books. More instructions on this can be found at this link.
