Information for Parents of Seniors

The purpose of this information page is to help you prepare and plan ahead as much as possible for the extra activities and costs that are inherent with senior year (not including college related activities and costs). 

COMMUNICATION
Talk and pray with and for your senior and your family. The senior year has many deadlines and can be one of frenzied activity and it helps to ease the high intensity emotions if deadlines are anticipated in advance.

WEBSITE
Check your e-mail, Titan Times, and the school website weekly for extra information being sent out from school.

SENIOR PICTURES FOR THE YEARBOOK

YEARBOOK INFORMATION

  1. Each senior should turn in 4-5 additional pictures to be used in the yearbook. These photos should include at least one baby photo, child photo, and junior high or high school photo. If the parents can email the pictures (preferred), they should send them to yearbook@trinitylex.org. Hard copies of pictures should be sent in an enveloped labeled with the student’s name and the number of enclosed pictures. Although we are very careful with the photos, it is recommended that parents make copies of any photos before sending them in. The pictures will be returned to the parent through the senior.

  2. The parents should compose a short letter to their child to be used in the yearbook. These letters should be roughly 5-8 sentences long. The space for the letter is limited, and parents may be asked to shorten their letter if it does not fit into the allotted space. Many parents have chosen to include a verse or reference in their letter. See previous yearbooks for examples.

  3. All of these items should be emailed to yearbook@trinitylex.org by January 6, 2020.
