  • Yearbook Orders

    It is time to order your 2015-2016 Mountain Oaks Yearbook.  This year's book is a 128 page   hardbound book.  The price is $41.95 or $46.00 if you want to have you name printed on the cover.  Families may order their yearbook at any of the Mountain Oaks sites or online at by clicking the red "Buy Yearbook" button to the left under Quick Links. Please call Samantha at 754-0532, ext. 2258, if you have any questions.

    Yearbook Photos Needed

    We have several students working hard on this year's yearbook already.  Due to the fact we only had a Fall Photo Day this year, we are in great need of families submitting their student's photos for the yearbook.  We try very hard every year to get a photo of each student in the yearbook.  These don't need to be professional photos, but your favorite current photo of your child would be appreciated.  You can either bring in a photo that will be scanned or send the photo to with your student's name and grade.  

    In addition to student photos, we would love to have photos from all of the school events.  You can either bring in your camera cards to the front office and ask them to copy the photos for the yearbook staff or upload them to by clicking the red "Submit Yearbook Photos" button to the left under Quick Links.  

    It would help the yearbook committee if we could get the  photos submitted as soon as possible, but our deadline is May 22nd.  We will not be able to guarantee that photos will be added after May 22nd.
