2019-20: Alternate Yearbook Distribution &
School Property Returns
September 10 & 11
**Your parent, guardian, younger sibling, or neighbor can pick up your yearbook up for you. They will need to sign for it and Mrs. Alder would appreciate an email letting her know this is what you intend on doing. If you can’t make September 10 or 11 please email Mrs. Alder at email@example.com and she will help figure out a plan.
**Fines from 2019-20 must be paid or cleared to pick up the yearbook.
**There are still 2019-20 yearbooks available for purchase for $55.00. You can pay for them online through TouchBase. If you opt to make a purchase, please bring a copy of your receipt. A cashier will also be available, if needed, but for everyone's safety paying online is highly encouraged.
Graduates and current students coming to pick up a yearbook should arrive by car at the WHS Bus Zone entrance off NE 195th Street. For safety purposes, individuals are not allowed to walk onto the campus.
Cars will follow a designated path and stop at stations, as needed. Please review the map to get a visual understanding of where the yearbook station is located at the Main Office Loop.
All individuals are reminded to bring and wear their masks, as masks and 6’ social distancing are required at all times. There will be no gathering of people, as staff will also be observing social distancing. We’ve been working hard to coordinate days where graduates can get yearbooks and current students can get the materials they need for the 2020-21 school year, while making everyone’s health our top consideration.
Further information about Falcon and Distribution Days are available on the WHS website.

This year, the "Reflections" Yearbook, appropriately, includes a mirror on the cover. To see the mirror, students must peel the cut out ("kisscut") of the Falcon off of the cover. It is highly recommended that students view this instructional video for directions on how to peel the cut out from the cover. Written instructions are also outlined below.
2020 Yearbook Cover Instructions:
PLEASE READ THROUGH ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE STARTING.
**PLEASE Know that if for some reason you mess up your cover removing the kisscut from the mirror Wingspan/WHS Yearbook cannot be held responsible for replacing it. We are sorry, but it is impossible to replace, we don’t have extras.
IF for any reason you are nervous about peeling the Falcon off, just leave it and bring the book to Mrs. Alder room 238 when we all come back to school. She is happy to help you.
If you would rather, a quick video explaining this process is also available through the ASB Instagram and this google drive link (you must be signed in to your NSD Gmail to access):
Step 1: Grab an X-Acto knife, a kitchen knife, pair of tweezers or something with a thin sharp edge.
Step 2: At the point of the Falcon’s tail, slowly and carefully pick at the edge, allowing you to pinch it. You should see a little sliver of the mirror peeking out underneath.
Step 3: Pull up on the edge towards the head of the falcon.
The shape of the bird will rip as you pull up; this is fine, grab the ripped edge and slowly peel towards the tip of the wing. You will see the mirror begin to appear underneath.
Step 4: As you approach the tip of the wing pull the paper taught and gently pull into the center of the bird. The paper should come right out, leaving the points in the wing now as a mirror.
When you pull the points of the wing out, they may come up a bit, do not fret, you can simply press them back down onto the surface with your finger.
Step 5: Repeat peeling the wing on the other side of the falcon, and any parts you may have missed.
Step 6: Celebrate and go through your well-earned and much awaited REFLECTIONS yearbook!

2019-20 Additional Yearbook Sales Windows
September 10-11, 2020
2019-20 yearbooks are sold on a pre-sale basis ONLY for $55 each online (August 20-22) or in person during Falcon Days (August 21-22), September 4-20, and, finally, December 2-20. Pursuant to resale tax rules, yearbooks will not be sold at any other time during the school year.
Please plan accordingly as many students who believe they do not want a yearbook during the sale windows at the start of the year feel differently as the school year comes to a close and they are unable to purchase one!
Please be reminded that if during the course of the year more than one yearbook is purchased – there will be no refunds. If you purchase two yearbooks, you will be given two books, not one book and a refund for the other.
