The mission of the publications department of Stoney Creek High School is to provide quality student-led publications to the student body providing the school community with an open forum of public expression. In the publications classes (newspaper and yearbook), students will make all editorial decisions including, but not limited to: generating story ideas, writing copy, editing copy, laying out copy, taking photographs, and handling all aspects of running the business end of a school publication. Because of this, any comments or concerns should be addressed to the editorial staff of the respective publication.
- It should be understood that neither the newspaper or yearbook are professional publications; therefore, students will make mistakes during the learning process. As staff, we will make every effort to learn from these mistakes and continually improve the publications.
- While our primary goal is to inform and entertain the school community, we also strive to maintain high journalistic standards as recommended by scholastic journalism associations such as Michigan Interscholastic Press Association, National Scholastic Press Association, Journalism Education Association, and Student Press Law Center.
- All opinions expressed in the publications are the students' or the individual sources, and not the staff's as a whole, the advisor, or school officials.
SENIOR PHOTO INFORMATION FOR THE CLASS OF 2022
Dear Parents and Students of the Class of 2022,
All seniors for the class of 2022 need to get their YEARBOOK PHOTO taken by Prestige Portraits. This service is provided free of charge and includes inclusion in the yearbook, as well as on the class composite. Students must have their yearbook photo taken by October 30, 2021 in studio (see address below). Once the photos are processed, students/parents must choose their preferred photo by November 15, 2021. If a pose is not chosen by that date, the studio will choose a pose to be submitted. Prestige will then send the photo directly to Mrs. Millard. There is nothing else that the student (or parent) needs to do in order to appear in the yearbook or on the class composite.
Students and parents will still have the opportunity to go to their preferred choice of photographer, if it is not Prestige Portraits, for their other senior photos. While only the yearbook pose sitting fee is FREE OF CHARGE, Prestige will be offering significant discounts for other senior picture packages as well.
Please remember that this is a more formal section of the yearbook than the underclassmen photo section. Because of this, students need to dress up - shirt/tie, collared shirt, dress, blouse, etc. All clothing needs to meet these specifications and the RCS dress code policy in order to be included in the yearbook and on the class composite. If you (or your child) need help obtaining proper attire, need more information regarding attire, or need help with transportation to the studio, please contact Mrs. Millard at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please call 248-377-2444 or go online at https://bit.ly/PRESTIGE_OAKLANDTWP and make a senior portrait appointment as soon as possible. Although the deadline to be photographed is October 30, 2021, Appointments fill quickly. Students who do not get their yearbook photo taken with Prestige by the deadline will not appear in the senior section of the yearbook.
4906 Adams Road, Oakland Twp., 48306
