Dear Parents:

It is hard to believe, but it is time to start thinking about the 2014/2015 Buccaneer! We will be ordering yearbooks online; all yearbooks will be shipped to the school and be distributed from here.  Further, all yearbooks will include your child’s name on the book.  The personalization is included in the price.

This year, the elementary/middle school yearbook will be $30.  This is a $2 increase over last year’s price to cover the increased cost of production.  The high school yearbook will be $50.

The deadline for ordering both books is March 2, 2015.

The steps to ordering the yearbook are as follows: 

  • Go to the link: and click on Buy My Yearbook.
  • Click on the drop down menu to find University School and choose either elementary/middle school or high school.
  • Click on add to cart icon.
  • The system will prompt you to personalize your book with your child’s name. Please add your child’s name here.  Do not click ignore.  There is no extra charge for this service .
  •  The system will then ask for your child’s name and teacher’s name.  For elementary students, use your child’s teacher’s name; for middle school students, use your child’s first period teacher’s name; and for high school, use my name, Evelyn Hammonds, as the teacher.
  • The system will then ask for your name and credit card information.
  • Then, submit your order.

If you do not have access to a computer, you may call 1-800-436-6030 to order by phone using a credit or debit card or I will take your order.

We also welcome any pictures you would like to share with us for the yearbook.  You can email me the pictures or send me the pictures and I’ll return them.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me by email at .
