NEW: 2020 Yearbook Distribution Info  

The 2020 Fairmont yearbooks have FINALLY arrived, and we are so excited to get them into your hands!

Yearbook Distribution will be in East Unit 121 on the following dates/times: 
Monday, Sept. 20 @ 2-4pm

Thursday, Sept. 23 @ 1:30-3:30 pm

Thursday, Sept. 30 @ 5-7 pm

* Students/graduates should bring a photo ID when they come to get their yearbook.

* Friends or relatives may pick up yearbooks and should bring their OWN photo ID to sign for the yearbook.

* If you still want to purchase a 2020 yearbook, extras are available for $60 cash or check payable to Kettering City Schools. 

If you or a representative cannot pick up your 2020 yearbook at one of the above times, you may contact Mrs. Stickel at to arrange an alternative pickup time. Alternative pickup times will be after Monday, Oct. 4.   


The 2020-21 yearbooks are still in production due to the delays and challenges with the 2020 yearbooks. Look for a progress update -- and hopefully an estimated delivery date -- after Halloween. 



Don’t miss out on getting your picture in the 2022 Firebird Yearbook!

All seniors MUST be photographed by Prestige Portraits (Lifetouch), who will send the images to the Firebird Yearbook Office automatically. Prestige supplies these yearbook headshots regardless of whether or not you purchase portraits from them. The phone number for the Prestige Portraits Senior Picture Office is 299-3723.  Prestige offers affordable headshot rates for Fairmont students. Being photographed at the studio gives students an opportunity to do a simple head-and-shoulders yearbook portrait photo shoot or a more involved package on their own time schedule (when they don’t have to get “fancy” on a school day). Call now to schedule your appointment!

For students who aren’t photographed at the studio, Prestige Portraits will come to Fairmont to photograph all seniors who have not already been photographed by Prestige. Prestige will send photos to the Firebird Yearbook Office automatically.  This on-campus photography is FREE to all Fairmont seniors. Remember, the ONLY way to have your portrait in the 2021yearbook is if you are photographed by Prestige Portraits. You may have older siblings or friends who say otherwise, but this requirement was new for the Class of 2019. Please plan to “dress for success” for your yearbook headshot whether you go to the studio or choose to be photographed at school.

A photographer from Prestige Portraits will be at FHS on Friday, October 8 to photograph any seniors who are not photographed at the studio. Please listen to announcements during advisory for more information!

Remember, all students must be photographed by Prestige by October 30 to be included in the 2022 Firebird yearbook.

Senior Picture Requirements:

  • Our exclusive school photographer is Prestige Portraits. Their senior picture photographers know our requirements. Please tell them that you’re being photographed for the Fairmont High School yearbook!

    • Photos will be vertical and in color.

    • Photos must be taken inside on a basic backdrop.

    • Photos must be formal head-and-shoulders-only. (No “glamour shots” or photos in which you are leaning against a tree, wall, motorcycle, etc.)

    • Hands may not be visible.

    • Students should “dress to impress” in professional, school-appropriate clothes. Shirts, sweaters, or dresses with modest necklines or collared shirts are suggested.

    • Be cautious of strapless tops as the photo may be cropped closer to the neckline than the top.

    • Be cautious of all white or all black backgrounds, especially if your clothes are similar in color to the background.

    • Photos will NOT be accepted from anywhere other than Prestige Portraits. Many seniors choose to be photographed at one of the many other great studios in the area. Families may purchase Senior Spotlight Ads if they wish to include additional photos of their senior taken at other locations and/or by other studios.
