Are you one of those people who didn’t purchase a yearbook in time? You are in luck. Out of the kindness of her heart, Ms. Moon purchased 50 extra books!! It’s first come first serve. You can still go online to purchase at www.yearbookforever.com or see Ms. Moon in 364 with $80 cash or check, but only until we get to the magic number 50!! After that, there are no more yearbooks to be bought.  Period!!
