 Attention Senior Parents 

You should have received the e-mail detailing all you need to know for graduating senior recognition ads for the BLHS Veritas Yearbook. The deadline for senior ad submission is Friday, December 1, 2017 by 4 p.m. in room 133. If you mail in your submission, please allow time for the US Mail to deliver and still meet the deadline. Also, if you deliver via your graduating senior, please make sure they did remember to drop it off in room 133. Sometimes that form of delivery can have fulfillment challenges! A few things to note:

1. Ads MUST be received in complete form – the e- receipt, the signed contract, the hi-resolution images on a thumb drive. We cannot accept piecemeal submissions as it lends itself to error. Please refer to the checklist included on the contract.

2. Images must be at least 300 dpi. You CANNOT make a digital original photo that is a lower resolution into a higher resolution.

3. The Veritas Yearbook Staff will create the ads! All you have to do is send us the images and the working. We will do the rest!

Thank you for your support of the BLHS Veritas yearbook program!

 SAGE Standard 

Scratch cooking, using fresh, wholesome, local, and campus-grown ingredients where possible. 


· When we cook from scratch, we know exactly what’s in our food. We know the protein and produce are fresh; we can avoid the use of preservatives; and we can make substitutions for common allergens. 

· We purchase from more than 800 local and regional suppliers; and the list is growing! 

· Local purchasing reduces the amount of gasoline used in transporting food, and the amount of preservatives necessary to keep food fresh in transit. It also supports the local economy by keeping schools’ money within their students’ communities. 

· Over 150 of our venues have on-site gardens or farms; in many locations, SAGE helps with planting, upkeep, and harvesting in addition to incorporating the produce into seasonal meals. 

· On-campus gardening and farming offer academic and physical enrichment for students by serving as a focus for science classes, volunteer and extracurricular work, independent research and experimentation, and community enrichment. 

The SAGE Standards are our promise to you. They’re what you can expect every time you eat in the dining hall. These standards support the health of your community, your environment, and your local economy. Full article:
