WHERE, OH WHERE, ARE MY SPRING PICTURES?

We heard from Dharma Cramer of Life Touch with news about our spring pictures. She informed us the their labs are completely shut down and online orders are shut down as well.

So, presently, no orders are being processed. We will let you know as soon as production starts up again.


In the meantime, if you wish to touch base with Life Touch, please email Dharma at dharma.cramer@lifetouch.com.

TIME TO ORDER YEARBOOKS

YEARBOOK UPDATE:

As we all adapt to change, one thing that remains constant is the yearbook tradition of documenting the history of our students and our school year. We are pleased to announce that our yearbook adviser and staff are working hard to complete the yearbook and make sure it is printed.

Since copies are limited and school schedules continue to change, we ask that you please order your year- book online as soon as possible. Jostens offers a payment plan at checkout for your purchase if you would like to use that option

FAMILY ACTIVITY:

In addition to partnering with us on our yearbook tradition, Jostens has also created an inspirational video we would like to share. To help us connect as a campus, we encourage you to watch the video with your students and follow up with discussion about how each of us can root ourselves in hope during these unprecedented times.

Take a look at the video here: https://bit.ly/Family_Video
