Senior Portraits
Seniors - Did you not get your free yearbook portrait taken during the summer or September dates when HR Imaging was at the school? Well, your last opportunity to have your senior portrait in the yearbook is approaching quickly. Root Studios will be here on Friday, Jan. 5 to take any remaining senior portraits during lunches that day. That is your absolute last chance to have your portrait featured in the yearbook! The yearbook portrait requires a different attire and backdrop from your regular school picture. This is not the same picture taken during the schedule pick-up days. You will not be pictured if you do not sit for this photo. The required dress is: a collared dress shirt for boys and girls should wear dress clothes with sleeves at least elbow length and avoid any low necklines. If you have questions, see Mrs. Phillips in room 2222.
