Picture Day Reminder

Picture day will be on Friday, August 21st. Packets were sent home with students today, August 19th (the first day of school). If you choose to purchase a picture package your student should return the packet and money on Aug 21st and give it directly to the photographers.  All students will have their picture taken whether or not you decide to purchase a picture package, so that it can be used for their student ID card and for the year book.
