2017-18 Yearbook Deadline for 2 Free Custom Pages Extended to April 20th

Parents, We sent home flyers recently about our KES 2017-18 yearbook’s 2 Free Custom Pages with a deadline of, April 18th.  We were able to extend that deadline to Friday, April 20th, so if you haven’t taken advantage of the 2 Free Custom Pages, you can still purchase your yearbook and have those pages included in the $16 price of the yearbook by clicking on the TreeRing link below.  Our school’s passcode is posted in the front office or you can find it on one of the flyers sent home with students. You can then personalize your free pages by adding photos and memories from throughout the year.   You will still be able to order the yearbook after the April 20th deadline.  It’s only the 2 Free Custom Pages that will no longer be available after that date.
