A yearbook, also known as an annual, is a type of a book published annually including to record, highlight, and commemorate the past year of a school.  High school yearbooks generally cover a wide variety of topics from academics, student life, sports, clubs and other major school events. Generally, each student is pictured with their class, while seniors might get a page-width picture or a slightly larger photo than the underclassmen to reflect their status in the school. Each school organization, such as a sports team or academic/social club, is usually pictured.  Your Helena High School Yearbook staff is always looking for great pictures to use in the yearbook.

If you have some cool pictures of you and your friends having fun‚ÄĒplease send them to mwalsh@helenaschools.org.¬† Please include your name and identify anyone else in the picture with you. It also helps if you include a brief summary of where the picture was taken, what date and what you were doing.

Senior Portrait Guidelines:

  1. Photos must be emailed in a digital format (jpg or jpeg file) to mwalsh@helenaschools.org. Title the image LastnameFirstname. For example, Anna Smith would be SmithAnna.
  2. Upload the image as an email attachment (do not copy paste into the email).
  3. The digital image must be a portrait frame (preferred size is 5×7 at 300 dpi). If you send a landscape frame, we will crop the image.
  4. All photos must bein color. No black and white or sepia photos will be accepted.
  5. No props may be visible, i.e. pets, flags, instruments, etc. We would rather highlight you on the other pages in this manner.
  6. Dress should be appropriate attire; standard school dress is suggested.
  7. Scanned images from photographs may not be accepted due to loss of quality in the scanning process.

The student’s school photo will be substituted if the requirements are not met or if we do not receive a photo by the deadline. If we do not receive a senior photo and the student did not have a school picture taken (or it is deemed inappropriate), they will not be included in the portrait section of the yearbook.
