- GPA's are not rounded, so an 89.9 will not qualify for honor graduate status.
- If you are close to 90.0, and bring your GPA up to or above 90.0 by the end of second semester, you will receive honor graduate status.

Balfour Days at Lanier HSDear Students and Parents,Scholastic Images/Balfour partners with Lanier to provide your class rings, letter jackets, caps & gowns, diplomas & diploma covers, championship rings, and other memorable moments in high school! In years past, we had a class meeting at the beginning of the year where every student filled out a short contact card in order to stay connected with on campus order days along with products offered during that season through graduation!This year, due to COVID-19, we are asking that every student fill out this digital contact card since we do not know when we will be able to have an in person class meeting. To ensure your student does not miss out on any opportunity leading up to graduation, it is very important to complete this card accurately. Please make sure to complete this quick contact card before Friday, August 28th!We know this year started different, but the memories you’ve created are worth remembering! We cannot wait to connect you to your most memorable moments in high school! Thank you and have a wonderful year!Make it a great day,Todd Sims, Meagan Castillo, John Upchurch, Andy Mashburn& the entire Scholastic Images TeamScholastic Images Inc./Balfour2955 Horizon Park Drive Suite DSuwanee, GA 30024770-614-9353
