Yearbook Photos

 

We would love for you to help us capture great school year memories by sharing the photos you take in your kids' classrooms. You can share your photos with the yearbook team via this link: https://images.jostens.com/408933626
 
As you take photos, make sure there are few kids in photos looking forward, and no single portraits please. Great locations for photos are outdoor recess, the media center, trained parent volunteer time, class parties, and field trips. Please keep class interruptions to a minimum and coordinate ideal picture taking times with the teacher. 
 
Take lots of pictures and take them early as our yearbook printing deadlines start in November!
