Class of 2022 Important Information

logo
ORDER DEADLINE: NOV. 19TH
 

Class of 2022, 
This has been an unprecedented time in our history. The pandemic has changed the way we 
communicate, interact, learn, and live our daily lives.  It has forced countless cancellations of 
events, experiences, and opportunities. Through all of this, our society has learned to adjust and 
adapt to keep our time honored traditions alive and well. If the resilience of our schools, students, and families have taught us anything over the past two years, it’s that TRADITION cannot be cancelled.
That is why you are receiving this letter today. It is time to order and prepare for your seniors 
graduation. As a Senior it is now time to order your Cap & Gown, Graduation Announcements and 
Senior Apparel.

Cap & Gown: In order to participate in graduation you MUST wear a Cap & Gown Unit. W/Stole.
Due to the custom nature of your school's gown, design it is critically important to order on time. 
Any gown Unit orders received after deadline cannot be guaranteed for delivery in the spring. Late 
orders placed after Dec 1st and all last minute/late orders will not be accepted or filled.
These gowns are not stock and must be made to order and there will be no extras available for 
purchase. Group Rate on all items expires Nov. 19th.

Graduation Announcements & Senior Apparel:  It is customary to mail out your graduation 
announcements decorated with school name, crest and colors. Graduation is one of life’s greatest 
milestones. As a graduate, you deserve to be formally recognized for how far you’ve come along 
with the opportunity to share how much this achievement means to you, with family and friends. Your 
official announcement is all about capturing this pride and celebrating it, with all the beauty and 
tradition of this once-in-a-lifetime moment.  Be sure to add your name cards and photo cards to your 
cart to personalize your announcement.  While ordering you can also take time to celebrate your 
status as a senior and add the most popular senior items of an extra Tassel and our Senior Hoodies 
and T-shirts. On the 22nd of each month seniors should wear their ‘22 apparel as a display of class pride
and senior status.

Senior Jewelry: As a Senior you have earned the right of passage to take part in the Dallastown 
Class Ring tradition. We are honored and excited to share with you the newest class ring styles and 
options, and we are committed to making this a first class experience so you can proudly design and 
wear your class ring.

Inside the envelope given to each senior you will find your official class ring sizer. The plastic rings are labeled 
with the size on each tab, and can be easily removed to try on your finger. As you size your 
finger, be sure you leave some extra room over the knuckle for a proper fit.  In addition, please 
see the enclosed flyer highlighting our FREE Cap & Gown with purchase for class jewelry orders that 
are placed by the order deadline below. We are excited to offer this brand new promotion as they 
make this once in a lifetime purchase. Below you will also find answers to our most frequently asked questions to help you along the way. If you have any questions, or need any assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact us using the email address and phone number below.
 
We look forward to helping you celebrate this important milestone in your life.

Sincerely,

TOP 5 PARENT QUESTIONS…

WHY ARE CLASS RINGS BEING ORDERED NOW?
It has been a longstanding tradition for class rings to be ordered together as a class. When a 
student designs and receives their class jewelry it symbolizes their commitment to graduate and 
creates a connection with their classmates that will be shared for a lifetime. Every ring tells a story, and this class jewelry will forever represent this unprecedented time in our history and the adversity that your student 
has overcome.

IS THE ORDER DEADLINE IMPORTANT?
While you can certainly order your class ring at any time throughout the year, this is the ideal 
time to order and get the best pricing and promotions that we offer. This order deadline is the 
ONLY time that will qualify for the FREE GIFT WITH PURCHASE when ordering by the advertised 
deadline. Also, part of the class ring tradition is to order and receive your ring together with 
your classmates.

WHAT IF MY STUDENT CHANGES THEIR MIND, OR THEY OUTGROW THEIR RING?
We have you covered in all instances. All class jewelry from Jostens is covered under our LIFETIME 
WARRANTY. Should your student need to change the size of their ring, repair damaged stones, or want 
it cleaned and polished, we will take care of it FREE of charge for the life of the ring. We will 
also change their design-a-side pictures on their class ring one time for free should your student 
change activities or change their mind. Also included in the purchase of your class jewelry is 4 
years of loss/theft protection which can be upgraded to 10 years for an additional cost of $19.99. 
So rest assured, as your student’s story changes during school, so can their class ring.

HOW DOES THE FREE CAP & GOWN WITH PURCHASE WORK?
The FREE GIFT WITH PURCHASE is available for ALL class jewelry orders that are placed by the order 
deadline except the Basic Options & Tradewinds collections. You will receive a redemption code on your jewelry email receipt.

HOW MUCH DO CLASS RINGS COST & DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?
Class ring pricing starts at $135.00 for our Basic Options collection (not shown online). We have 
several affordable class ring collections and metal options to choose from. The Tradewinds 
collection is our most affordable collection that can be customized by your student. We have 
several great payment plan options to choose from.
1)   Jostens J-Pay™ - This option divides the total cost of your class ring purchase into 3 or 4 
equal monthly payments which are auto charged to your credit card. The first payment is charged at 
the time of order, and the remaining payments are charged in the following months. This is an 
interest free payment program offered by Jostens.
2)   Payment in full - Pay in full online.

  • The first informational meeting for those interested in assisting with this party will be held on Monday, September 27, 2021 from 7:00-8:00 p.m. in the high school cafeteria.

The party requires the time, planning and effort of parents of the senior class. Starting in September, planning begins for this big event. Parents-- please start thinking about this now and consider volunteering as a chair or committee member for any of the following positions:

Overall Party Chairperson(s)—Works with the chairs to coordinate all committee efforts and is the sole liaison to the senior class advisors for any information.

All meetings will be held in the high school cafeteria at 7:00 p.m. and will need to end promptly at 8:00 p.m. Each committee will need to reserve additional meeting times outside of these dates at locations and times of their choosing. These meetings serve as a time for all parents to get together to be updated on each committee’s progress.

We look forward to a great year with your senior!
