SCMS YEARBOOK SIGNING 

If you have ordered your SCMS yearbook we have some good news! Yearbook signing IS NOT cancelled! Jostens is excited to announce that the SCMS yearbook signing tradition is alive and it’s fully digital to suit our socially distanced students. Jostens has just launched a new platform, Yearbook Digital Signing Pages, that gives every student in our school the chance to create virtual signing pages, invite their friends to leave messages, and print out the final pages to keep with the yearbook as a permanent keepsake. This is free for every student whether they purchased a yearbook or not.
