2019 Yearbook Distribution Info  

2019 Yearbook Distribution will take place in the East Unit Lobby on Tuesday, August 6 from 3:30-5:30 pm.


** Please DO NOT ask for your yearbook at another time. You may send a trusted friend or relative to pick up your yearbook during this time – or you can pick it up once all students are back to school on August 15. **

  • Please bring a photo ID to pick up your yearbook.

  • If you’re unable to make it to the pick-up time, you may send a trusted friend or family member to pick up your yearbook. That person will need to bring his/her OWN ID and will sign for your yearbook.


    • The cost is $75 – come during the posted pick-up time with cash or a check/money order made payable to the Kettering Board of Education. WE CANNOT ACCEPT CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS.

If you cannot come during this pick-up time, you may get your yearbook from Room 121 from 2:15-3:30 once all students are back at school on Thursday, August 15. 

Thanks for your cooperation! We hope you love this yearbook as much as we do! 

Please note that yearbooks that have not been picked up by December 15 may be resold or discarded. Please make every effort to pick up your yearbook by that date.



Don’t miss out on getting your picture in the 2020 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 several discounts and free sitting fee dates for Fairmont students over the summer. 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 2019 yearbook 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 11 and Friday, November 8 to photograph any seniors who are not photographed at the studio. Please check the FHS Yearbook web page and listen to announcements during advisory for more information!

Remember, all students must be photographed by Prestige to be included in the 2020 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.
