Senior Parents - Time to order Graduation Announcements

Grades > 9-12
The time has come to order Darlington School's custom graduation announcements if you wish to do so.  These announcements are available through The Balfour Company at http://www.gabalfour.com from this website choose: Darlington School, Rome Georgia from the drop-down menu, then click the “Graduation” icon.  In the column on the left side of the page  choose "Graduation Products" - you will want to order the "custom announcement" and name cards.  Balfour offers other graduation items which you may purchase but the custom announcement is the only "Darlington" item offered.  A copy of a previous year's Darlington custom graduation announcement is attached to this announcement so you can see what it looks like.

If you have questions about the ordering process, call Balfour directly at 770-594-8155 or toll free at 1-866-694-8155.

Please know that if you are interested in placing an order, you must act with some urgency.  Any order placed after February 22nd  will be considered a late order by Balfour, which means your order will likely be subject to a late fee and there is no guarantee you will receive your student’s custom announcements in time.  The Class of 2019 will graduate May 18, 2019 at 9:30 am.
Again, these custom graduation announcements are a nice memento but you are not required to purchase them.  Also, these are not sold at Darlington School - you must purchase them through the Balfour website.
