Senior Information

Senior Ads: Due January 15th, 2024 — Jump Code RYY2 — Celebrate in the yearbook!

What is a Senior Ad?

Traditionally it is a custom section in the yearbook that includes a senior’s baby photo, a current photo and a personal message from the person(s) who purchased the ad. It can also be a way to celebrate a team or group of friends.

Want Examples? Go to: https://lnenortheastern.com/4264/yearbook-updates/senior-ads/ 

The person who purchases the ad gets to select the photos and the message. (All messages do need to meet our publishing guidelines.) If you have questions about the message, please contact Ms. Doland (pdoland@lps.org).

How do I create a senior ad?

Use jump code RYY2 and select “Purchase a Senior Ad.” There will be three options – “Have the School Design My Ad,” “Design My Own Ad Online,” and “Upload My Finished Ad.”

  • “Have the School Design My Ad” – Submit your photos, captions, and a message, and the yearbook staff will put it together for you.
  • “Design My Own Ad Online” – You get to choose the layout, fonts, & colors. You’ll upload your photos and be guided through the process.
  • “Upload My Finished Ad” – If you or someone in your family is skilled with design, you can submit a .jpeg of a finished ad.

You’ll then be guided to the payment page, where you can confirm and purchase your ad. Any ads must be purchased by January 15, 2024.

How Much Is It?

Prices for ad space start at $40. Please purchase and submit by January 15 using jump code RYY2 at lps.org.

Graduation

For your planning purposes, the LNE Class of 2024 will graduate at Pinnacle Bank Arena, at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 26th, 2024. We look forward to celebrating your student’s final year at Lincoln Northeast!

Senior Fines/Fees

Please take the time to check your fines and fees and ensure that you have all overdue books or materials returned before the end of the school year. If you need to make a payment plan with your administrator, visit the Main Office to get that process started.

Cap & Gown Information

For any student qualifying for the Free-Reduced Meals program, see Ms. Ourada in the Main Office for information on completing a Fee Waiver to order your cap/gown/tassel at no charge.

How to Place Your Order

Go to https://signaturegraduation.com/pages/choose-your-school

You will be able to order your cap, gown and tassel as well as other items to commemorate your Senior year. Your order will ship to the address of your choosing. We will not come to the school to take orders this year so you will need to order on our website.

Order Apparel?

If you order apparel (t-shirts and hoodies), typically it will ship to you 7-10 days after you place your order.

When Can I Order?

You can order now until May 17th. I would recommend placing your order before February 1st because there will be a price increase on that date. After May 17th, all online orders placed must be picked up from our office.  

PICK UP orders can be placed from May 18th through May 24th at NOON.

No orders will be accepted online after May 24th at NOON.

When Will I Receive My Order?

We will ship your order to you as soon as all items are packaged. Depending on items purchased it could be the spring before your package is received. You will receive an email with tracking information to the email you provide on your order. Please watch your email for that information so you know when your package is coming.

Appropriate Dress for Graduation

Participating seniors must wear the traditional graduation gowns, caps and tassels. We would like all students to dress appropriately for a dignified ceremony.

  • Tassels will be worn over the right eye. Mortarboards are to be worn with the flat surface horizontal.
  • Please leave purses or bags at home, or your clear bag with your family.
  • Nuisance items (e.g. sunglasses) will not be allowed in the arena.
  • Keep your mortarboards and gowns neat. No writing or taping will be allowed.
  • Please remember this is a formal ceremony, students will not be allowed to carry any items with them across the stage to receive their diploma.
