Yearbook Photos

Both Senior and Underclass photos for the yearbook will be Aug. 16 & 17 during English classes. Students in Even hour English classes will take their photos on Thursday and students with Odd hour English classes will take their photos on Friday.

English teachers have sent all underclassmen home with a photo order flyer on Aug. 14.  A copy of this flyer can be found here.

Underclass photos only: If you wish to purchase a picture packet, Rolland offers payment at the time of the photo or online payment.  

To pre-pay underclass photos online follow these directions.

Pay online at

  1. Click on “K-11” then “Pre-Purchase Photos”.  Enter the password: SMN18

  2. Follow the online instructions. Once you place your order online it will send you a receipt.

To pay with a check, cash or money order, follow the directions on the flyer sent home and return on photo day. A copy of the flyer is attached to this email

Underclass picture order forms are available in the office or on the SM North homepage.

Seniors do not pre-pay and will receive selection and order information around Sept. 15.

Seniors, we highly recommend that young men wear a tie and a collared shirt and a nice pair of pants; young ladies might be interested in wearing dresses or a nice shirt and pants. English teachers will allow them time to put a tie on and fix hair prior to the photo.  Students please remember you represent not only your parents, but SM North and the class of 2019. Please be sure to be a positive representative of the SM North Class of 2019. And as a reminder, no hats can be worn in photos.

If you do not have an English class scheduled at North, please email or see Mrs. Tate or the office for a pass to have your photo taken during a time of your choice.

Picture prices increase after picture day.

Students who paid for picture packets should receive them back in about two weeks.

Students absent during their English classes can sign up for retakes Oct. 19. (Or if you are gone on Thursday, ask your teacher to send you down on Friday.)

If you have any questions, please contact yearbook adviser Becky Tate at or by calling 913-993-7012.

Senior Tributes in Yearbook

Seniors love to see a Senior Tribute in the yearbook at the end of the year;

don't miss out on this tradition, purchase one now!   

Don't miss out on celebrating your senior's graduation with an ad in the back of the 2019 Indian. All ads in the Indian are in COLOR, and student designers work to make them the best pages ever. This is not only a great present for your senior, but also a wonderful way to support SM North's award-winning Indian yearbook.

This year we are having  a 1-on-1 Ad Design night, scheduled the Tuesday prior to the first two deadlines (Sept. 11 &  Oct. 15) for any parents that want assistance with their ad.

There are three due dates for ads, with prices increasing after each deadline. The first due date is Tuesday, September 18.
