The LAST Amelia High School yearbook is officially on sale!  The 2016-2017 Amelia High School yearbooks will be switching from a spring delivery book to a fall delivery book.  This means that students will receive their yearbook in September of 2017.  This change will allow for the spring activities such as spring sports, Prom, the spring musical, and graduation to be included inside the book instead of in the form of a supplement.  Seniors will have the option to either pick up their book at West Clermont High School next fall, or choose the delivery option when purchasing and their book will sent to the address provided (students in all grade levels have the option to use the delivery option as well).  When using this option, please double check the address to be sure it is correct.  If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Calton at Calton_b@westcler.org.   To order your yearbook please go to http://www.yearbookordercenter.com  and use the school code 13603.
