Senior Advertisements- Less than 15 spots remain!
Dear Parents of Seniors,

Congratulations on your child beginning his or her senior year at Chesapeake Math and IT Academy North High School! Before you know it, they will have graduated from here and will be on their way to college. What better way to congratulate them on this major accomplishment than by purchasing a Senior Advertisement?

Each senior ad is in full color and is designed to be a one-of-a-kind memory. We will combine cherished, and possibly embarrassing photographs with your message of congratulations, love, and support to create a completely personalized ad design. Some parents choose to keep their ad a surprise until yearbooks are handed out. Just indicate that the ad is secret and only those on the yearbook staff will know!

This year, time is of the essence and we will only be able to accept ad reservations until Wednesday, December 6, 2017 or until spaces run out. The sizes and prices are as follows:

$70 for a ½ page ad. For this size, we highly recommend a maximum of 5 photographs and up to 75 words. If you submit less photos, you can include a longer message, up to 125 words.

$40 for a ¼ page ad. For this size, we highly recommend a maximum of 2 photographs and up to 50 words. If you submit less photos, you can include a longer message, up to 75 words.

In order to reserve a spot, please complete this form:
https://goo.gl/forms/jfhSGJGoHOMdFJQ02


We would like to thank you in advance for buying an ad for your child, and supporting the yearbook. Please let us know if you have any questions by emailing us at yearbook@cmitacademy.org.

Kind regards,
