Digital Yearbook Signing Saves the Day

Hey WHMS Students and Families,

Although school is closed and social distancing is in place, students can sign each other's yearbooks digitally by following the steps below. Even students who did not order a yearbook can still create a digital page to get their friends' signatures. After signatures and messages have been collected, a student can print out the pages and add them to their actual yearbook! 

Students are encouraged to work with a parent/guardian to set up digital yearbook signing using these easy steps.

  1. Go to the site:

  2. Set up an account with name, school, end date, e-mail, and password.

  3. Choose a color scheme for the title page.

  4. Jostens will send a personal link that a student then sends to friends so that they can digitally sign their yearbook. 

  5. Signers find some space, pick fonts, colors, and stickers, write their message, and then post.

  6. Students can print out the pages to keep with their actual yearbook. They can also delete any post if desired.

A very small supply of extra yearbooks were printed. If a student didn't pre-order one, you can e-mail Mrs. Seaton at to see if there are any still available.

Those who pre-ordered may be wondering when they will get their actual yearbooks. Well, that's still in the "figuring out" stage. Stay tuned for communication in the near future about yearbook distribution. 

Finally, thank you to WHMS media paraprofessional and yearbook coordinator, Mrs. Seaton, for all of her hard work putting together the yearbook and sharing this information about digital yearbook signing!
