2020-2021 Yearbook Pictures

Hello FC Families! Mrs. Torres and Mrs. Troutman need your help with taking pictures for the 2020-2021 French Creek Yearbook. Please take ONE picture of your child/children during any upcoming FC event/activity (First Friday Fun Days, Spirit Days, Virtual Run 101 club, etc) and EMAIL it to fcpictures@ojrsd.net. Please have the subject of the email state the event/activity. If you have a picture from the first day of school, we would love to include it as well!

Also, don't forget to send pictures of your child to the homeroom photo collector. The pictures are for the homeroom candid page in this year's French Creek Yearbook. Be sure to check out the letter from the homeroom photo collector (emailed to you from your homeroom teacher) to know what kinds of pictures to send. If you don't know who your child's homeroom photo collector is, please contact Mrs. Troutman or Mrs. Torres, our FC Yearbook Advisors.

Yearbook Club will be entirely virtual this year and is for students in 5th and 6th grade. We will meet on Wednesday afternoons from 3:00-3:45. Members will design event pages, choose photos to be included in the yearbook, and plan the yearbook's layout and content. Click here to sign up and get more information. Students must sign-up by February 8. Any questions contact Mrs. Troutman (kristatroutman@ojrsd.net) or Mrs. Torres (ttorres@ojrsd.net).
