Yearbook News

Good Day! My name is Jennifer Wachs, and I am the EGMS Yearbook coordinator for the 2020-2021 school year. I am looking for pictures of your students from earlier (or currently) this school year, starting in September of 2020. Themes that I would love: Sports/Outdoor activities, Online learning/work area, extra curricular (Choir, Spanish, Band, Art, Etc.), Friends, a single pet picture, or any other picture you think is fun and exciting. The picture must include name of student(s), and grade levels, so I can label that information in the Yearbook. Please send pictures to:
