Yearbook and Senior Portraits

Email or about yearbooks, senior portraits, or senior ads. Mrs. Nelson and Mrs. Prewitt DO NOT have additional yearbook information.  

Yearbook Information:
Did you know? The yearbook is printed 16-32 pages at a time throughout the course of the school year. The pages are stored in a warehouse until the entire book is complete, and then they are sewn into the cover and shipped to NGHS. 

Pages with senior portraits, grades 9-11 portraits, and senior ads are printed in the fall. This is because activities that appear on the other pages (sports, clubs, visual and performing arts, etc.) have not really gotten going for the year yet.  Makes sense, right? This is why you MUST meet the senior photo session and senior ad deadlines listed below. Why can't you order a senior ad in December or during second semester? It's because that section has already been printed!

Senior Portraits:
All seniors must take formal senior pictures at Cady Studios to be included in the NGHS yearbook; pictures from other studios cannot be used in the yearbook.  You can make appointments online at  You can direct any customer service questions to 800.547.6237. 

2018 Seniors received magazines about Cady Studios, taking their pictures, and placing their pictures in the yearbook, and ordering additional optional pictures during a meeting the week of May 1, 2017. If students missed that meeting for some reason, they can pick up the magazine at the front desk between now and the end of the year. 

Ordering Yearbooks:
1. The best time to order yearbooks is at the beginning of the school year since prices go up a little at a time throughout the year. 
2. Deadline for ordering a yearbook is Jan. 30.
3. There is a date early second semester when the yearbook sponsors must tell the publishing company how many yearbooks to print. You CANNOT order yearbooks after this time, so do pay attention to this deadline.
*Over the years, we have had many parents forget to order yearbooks. Since we don't order many extras, there is sometimes a shortage at the end of the year. Parents have even tried to call the publishing company and have them print a book for their student. We have worked with several publishing companies over the years and have NEVER found one that will actually print that extra yearbook. Don't miss the deadline!
**For some reason, the yearbook ordering tab has disappeared from the school's website. Until it is fixed, you can order your yearbooks directly at 

Senior Ads:
Please see the attached flyer for information concerning the cost and process for submitting senior yearbook ads. You can create and purchase the ad and buy your yearbook using the following link to the Yearbook Order Center.
Please note that the deadline for senior ads is October 15, 2017.
