Seniors, Are You Ready?

Order Your Cap and Gown

October 9:  The Jostens Representative was at NPHS to meet with the seniors to meet begin the process of ordering graduation caps, gowns, and announcements for their 2020 graduation. Each senior received a  packet of information on the process of ordering these products. There are extra packets in the office for any seniors that missed the meeting.

There is no charge for the cap, gown, and tassel if that is all you wish to order.  If you wish to place an order for additional graduation items, you can place the order online with Jostens.  Cap, gown, and tassel will be ordered by the school. 

Submit Your Senior Picture

Senior portraits are due December 20

Meeting this deadline is crucial if you want to be included in our senior section, as we have deadlines we need to meet to get our yearbook to the printer and in your hands by the end of your senior year.  So please do your best to book your photo shoot by the end of October or early November.

 Senior Portrait Specifications

  • All images should be portrait orientation(no landscape or horizontal images will be used).
  • All images must be submitted digitally and should be at least 300 dpi (digital)
  • Portrait size - width 1.153" x height 1.722"    
  • File format type JPEG or TIFF (Please NOTE: You CANNOT save as Power Point, Word, Works)
  • Taking prints of the portrait and then scanning is not encouraged. The quality is usually poor. Ask your photographer to submit the electronic image directly.

 Portraits can be emailed directly to nphsyb@gmail.com.  You can also submit them on CD to Ms. Tenille Nelson in the Counseling Office.

We would love to see your memories of senior year!

  • The other 2 sections of the "home" bleachers and any other seating in the stadium will NOT require a ticket. There is plenty of space for all who wish to attend.  Only the preferred seating space is ticketed.
  • We are hoping that this preferred seating will give parents a great spot to view the graduation of their son/daughter.

  • Graduation is held in the main gym.
  • Each graduate received 5 red tickets (can only be used for indoor ceremony).  You must have a red ticket to enter the gym.
