Lakecrest 2016/2017 Yearbook Orders

The 2017 Lakecrest school yearbook can now be ordered online starting next week.

The deadline for ordering is May 5th. Because the publisher is not local we cannot guarantee that books can be ordered after that date.

Thanks to Ms. Broussard and the students of the Yearbook Committee who have been working diligently since September.

The yearbooks are full color, hard cover, and can be personalized for a small additional fee (available upon checkout). A supplement, containing information about events from the last few months of school such as grade 9 graduation exercises, and sports day, will be available later in the spring.

To order a yearbook:

Log on to and type in “lakecrest” under “find your school.”

Select this year’s 2017 yearbook. From the opening page, you will be able to purchase a yearbook.
