If you haven’t already reserved your 2015-2016 McCombs yearbook, you still have time. The books consist of 48 colorful pages in a hardbound book. They cost $20 and are available while supplies last. Order forms can be obtained from Mrs. Hyslope or in the school office. Yearbooks are distributed during the last week of school.
