Yearbook News!

Each 5th grade student will have their kindergarten picture next to their 5th grade individual picture on the class pages of the yearbook. Please send a copy of their kindergarten portrait to school. If you absolutely cannot find their "official" kindergarten picture, we will accept any picture of your child at age 5. Please send the picture in a ziploc bag or envelope clearly labeled with your child's first and last names and teacher name. These pictures are due by Friday, October 16. All photos will be returned.
