SPRING PICTURE DAY
Spring Pictures are coming! Flyers should be coming home today. All students will be photographed. Uniforms are not required. No orders are needed unless you want to have a specific background (#1 is default) or have special notes for the photographer (ie. please show teeth in smile). Pictures will come home later for you to decide which you would like to keep and pay for, or return those that you don't want to buy.
Kindergarten and 6th grade graduation pictures will be taken at the same time. It is helpful to have hairstyles that will allow the students to wear the graduation cap.
Sibling or group photos can be done at 8 am, followed by students beginning at 8:35 am. We will not be having retakes at the school. 4-5 volunteers are needed to help with picture day. Please contact Jennifer Bundy, 907-884-5008 to sign up.
