Order the JDES 2014-2015 Yearbook Today!

Time is running out to place your yearbook order. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to have a life-long reminder of your student’s elementary experience. All the students love seeing themselves and their friends in the book and reminiscing on the year gone by.

The yearbook only costs $22! And, you can get your student’s name printed on the cover for an additional $5.

Two Easy Ways to Order:

  1. Go to Balfour.com and type “Jackson Davis” in the Search, and then select Jackson Davis Elementary, Richmond, VA from the list. Click the Yearbook icon and then select from the available options. You can pay by credit or debit card.
  2. Send in cash or a check for $22.00, payable to “JDES PTA”. With the payment, include a note stating: Your Student’s Name, Grade, and Teacher’s Name.

If you want your student’s name printed on the cover, send an additional $5 and be sure to print your student’s name clearly on the note you send in. There is a 25-character maximum for name printing.
