8th Grade Pictures- February 20th
Retakes- March 26th
All students will take formal photos. Please make sure students are dressed appropriately. A letter from the picture company with more detailed information is forthcoming.
Graduation Cap and Gowns
The full graduation pack will be $55.00, which includes cap, gown, tassel, and autograph book. Payment is due before February 16th and can be paid in cash to the Main Office or via the online link. If payment is not received on time, the cap and gown will NOT be ordered.
Other Graduation Costs
We will be hosting a fundraiser to help to offset the additional costs for graduation. In years past, costs have been around $75 per person so we are going to try to lower that amount as much as possible.
Baby Pictures Needed
For this years’ yearbook, we need a baby picture of each student. A digital file is preferable. You can take a picture of the picture with your phone. Please send via email to Dr. Albani or add directly to the Dropbox Link below. If you need to send a hard copy, please make sure it is labeled so that the picture can be returned. This is due February 15th.
