Hello parents of the Class of 2019!
Baby ads for the yearbook are here! Please follow the directions below on how to purchase and design your ad.
YOU HAVE UNTIL DECEMBER 15 TO PURCHASE YOUR OPTIONAL BABY AD. Ads are $65 for a 1/4 page. You will design the ad yourself using a provided template on the following website. There are a few templates to choose from, so if you would like, you can include a senior portrait on the ad alongside a baby picture. Senior portraits are NOT used for the senior class photos. The baby ad is the ONLY place in the yearbook where your student's senior portrait will be included.
1) CLICK HERE and type "Central Catholic" into the search bar. Choose Central Catholic in Portland, OR.
2) Click on "Buy Personal Ad" and follow the directions on the page.
3) Please proof read your ad. We can not fix any typos, as the site will send us exactly what you have created. If you do not choose a background color for your ad, it will have a white background in the yearbook.
TIPS: Complete this process on a laptop or desktop computer, not a phone or tablet. Chrome and firefox seem to work best. Please contact me if you need help or if you have any questions.

Participation in end-of-the-year graduation activities is contingent on several important factors:
A) Successful completion of all required classes for graduation and Christian service requirement.
B) Continuing respect for and cooperation with school regulations that apply to all students through graduation.
C) Payment of all tuition and fees owed to the school.
There are no exceptions to these requirements.
The following dress code will be strictly enforced for all three graduation events: Senior Awards Assembly, Baccalaureate Mass, and Commencement.
Ladies: Slacks, dress or skirt, dress shoes.
Gentlemen: Slacks, dress shirt, tie, and dress shoes.
NO SHORTS, FLIP-FLOPS OR TENNIS SHOES PLEASE! IF YOU ARE DRESSED INAPPROPRIATELY, YOU WILL NOT PARTICIPATE.
Student behavior is expected to be respectful and attentive at all times during these events. Students should give honor to classmates by respecting the dignity and seriousness of these ceremonies in both action and appearance. The following are unacceptable: chewing gum, beach balls, confetti, silly string, bubbles, horns, messages on the top of mortarboards (caps), and sunglasses. Students who violate these restrictions will not receive their diploma until such time as the Administration deems appropriate.
Tickets will not be required for the Commencement Ceremony.
Students will be entering the Chiles Center separately from their parents and families (at the entrance located near the intersection of Portsmouth and Warren streets). We ask that students park as near to this intersection as possible. Please do not park in the main Chiles Center lot. We would like to reserve that lot for families and special guests attending the Commencement.
