What is Argus?
A mythological being with many eyes, some of which were always open, known as a zealous watchman:  a vigilant guardian, observant. The 2021 yearbook staff will attempt to be zealous watchmen capturing the events of 2020-2021 and turning them into a book of memories for students, parents and staff.

Notes from the Nest - Senior Messages & Baby Pictures 
Parents of the Class of 2022,

Having a senior at Cumberland Valley means one thing:  anticipation for graduation.  We know you are very proud of your senior and their accomplishments throughout high school.  Let the senior staff put your special message and wishes for their future in the 2022 Argus.  By reserving a space in the yearbook at a cost of $20.00, you can tell your senior how important they are in a message of 30 words or less.  When your student looks back on their senior year, the reminder of your support will always remain in the yearbook. In addition to your special message, you can also submit a baby picture of your senior to be published in the 2022 Argus for an additional $15.00. 

Space is limited and pictures will be published on a first-come, first-serve basis. To make it more suspenseful, please keep the fact that you are sending a message/picture a secret.  Let your child be surprised when their yearbook arrives.  Imagine the joy your senior will feel when he or she opens the yearbook and realizes that you have enclosed a personal message and picture.

Don’t delay!  Your submission must be received no later than Friday, November 19 Sunday, November 21, 2021  Submissions will not be published if payment in full is not received by Wednesday, December 8, 2021. Thank you.

Submission Options and Payment Instructions:
1. Complete our NFTN Message Picture Google Form to submit your personal message of 30 words or less.

2. Upload a digital picture through the form in Step 1.
Mail your photograph along with a completed NFTN Mail-In Picture Submission Form to: Argus, Cumberland Valley High School, 6746 Carlisle Pike, Mechanicsburg, PA 17050. Please include a self-addressed envelope so the senior staff can return your picture to you.

3. Parents will be billed through Skyward (under Fees) for each submission after November 19, 2022. An email reminder will be sent once you have been invoiced. Payments will be processed through RevTrak (like Homecoming tickets). Below is a video (made for student device insurance) showing how to make a payment. Please start the video at 3:17.
