Class of 2016 Information

> All Senior Portraits must be taken by September 30, 2015  to be included in the yearbook. The only dates Lifetouch Photography will be at Sherwood this fall are August 12-14 and September 16-18. Appointment times will be mailed and can be adjusted, if you contact them right away. Appointments can also be made for their studios in Baltimore by appointment only but those appointments need to be reserved very early so you don’t miss deadlines.

For the yearbook pose, all seniors must be photographed in Lifetouch’s provided drape or tuxedo jacket and shirt. By contract, the Sherwood yearbook cannot accept official portrait photos from any other sources. The basic Lifetouch sitting fee is $25 (six tuxedo or drape shots). Additional packages for poses with different outfits 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 23 or it will be chosen for you by the yearbook staff. If you photograph after September 30, 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 on Wednesday, October 14.  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.

> Honor a Senior: Friends and Family Tribute Ads can be created ONLINE  Friday, October 23 is the early-bird deadline. Please see the second page of the flyer for more information.
