Any senior who was absent on cap and gown picture day needs to call Lifetouch and schedule a make-up picture. You should have received a letter from Mr. Newell with complete information. The cap/gown pictures will be printed in the yearbook, so if you do not get a make-up picture, you will not have a picture in the yearbook. See Mr. Newell for more information.
Any student who wants to be on the yearbook staff for next year needs to bring their schedule card with them and see Mr. Newell to get their schedule card signed. Students who sign-up, but do not have a teacher signature, will not be scheduled into the class.
Students who are interested in taking choir next year should see Mr. Newell to discuss which class they should sign-up for, and to get a signature on their schedule card. Please remember that membership in Vocal Ensemble requires an audition and Mr. Newell's approval.
The Jostens Rep will be here on Thursday,
April 2 at lunch to deliver the Senior Announcements and keepsakes to the
