Senior Dedications

The yearbook staff at Parkland High School is once again offering dedication ads for parents and guardians to congratulate their graduating seniors. These personal messages will appear in color in the 2018 yearbook, creating another opportunity to make this yearbook memorable for the Class of 2018. Return this form either via email or mail with payment and any pictures for the dedication by December 8, 2017. If emailed, please send the payment by mail to Parkland High School. Please do not attach pictures in word documents, all pictures must be in jpeg format.

  • Make sure to include your child’s name on the back of all photographs. Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope with your payment so we can return photos.
  • You may crop pictures before submitting them to include only the people that you would like in the photo. If you decide to crop your photos, please make sure the photo remains a rectangle. (Do not cut out the individual in the photo)
  • The yearbook staff will design your ad using your photo(s) and text. A variety of fonts and sizes will be used depending on the amount of text.
We encourage using fewer words so we can create your message in a larger point size. We reserve the right to refuse any copy or photos we feel are inappropriate.
