Class of 2015 Information

> All Senior Portraits must be taken by October 1, 2014 to be included in the yearbook. The only dates Lifetouch Photography will be at Sherwood this fall are August 13-15 and September 16-17. You should receive an appointment time in the mail that can be adjusted if you contact them right away. You may also go to their studios in Baltimore by appointment only. Males must sit for tuxedo poses and females must sit for drape poses. By contract, the Sherwood yearbook can not accept official portrait photos from any other sources. There is a basic Lifetouch sitting fee charge of $25 (six tuxedo or drape shots). There are additional packages for poses with different outfits which cost extra. If you do not receive an appointment time in the mail, if you need to change the time, or you need any additional info, call them at 1-800-445-1189 or visit their website at

A few weeks after being photographed, you will receive proofs in the mail. If you wish to choose your yearbook pose, you will have to do so by October 24 or it will be chosen for you by the yearbook staff. If you photograph after October 1, you will be unable to choose the pose because of the time it takes to get proofs back. Any other issues dealing with senior photos, call Lifetouch at 1-800-445-1189.

> The Senior Class Panorama Photo will be taken as a part of the Senior Breakfast which is preliminarily set for Wednesday, October 15. Order forms will be distributed in a class or homeroom prior to that date. The picture must be paid for and ordered at the time the picture is taken.

> Friends and Family Senior Salutation Ads are currently being taken. This year, ads may only be ordered and created ONLINE. We will fill up our limited space on a first paid basis so try to meet the Friday, October 24 deadline. Groups of friends or other organized groups such as sports teams and clubs are encouraged to combine funds and purchase larger ads. After October 24, ads will still be accepted but the prices go up and then the final deadline will be Friday, December 5, but space may fill before then.

SUBMIT ONLINE: visit to choose a design template and submit photos, text, and payment for your Friends and Family Senior Salutation ad. Please contact us in late January to make sure your ad was received and processed.

Business Ads can be placed in the Yearbook
