Last Call for Senior Photos!

The attached list is our final check point. Please have your senior check the list and see Mrs. Mertl immediately if they believe they turned in a photo, but their name is NOT on this list.

The names on the main part of the list show students who either 1) turned in a digital or hard copy photo, or 2) had their photo taken by Brian Hull. At the end of the list is a 2nd list of students who didn't turn in a photo, but we have a 2018-2019 Martin Photography photo that we'll use.
