    • Yearbook distribution will happen after school in the Spangenberg quad area (in front of P-115). This will be for pre-ordered yearbooks only. Remaining yearbooks will be for sale — while supplies last — in person only at the Student Activities Center once distribution starts (only seniors will be able to purchase the first day of distribution). 
    • You can check to see if you pre-ordered a yearbook using this link.
    • Distribution will happen after school in the Spangenberg quad area.
      • Bring a photo ID so that we can make sure yearbooks get to the right students
      • You can only pick up your own yearbook, not anyone else’s yearbook (this includes siblings)
      • Once we are done with the May 23 distribution day, students with pre-ordered yearbooks can pick up their yearbook at the Student Activities Center
      • Questions? Please contact The Olympian adviser Kristy Blackburn at kblackburn@pausd.org.
