> Attn: Parents of Seniors:

  • 50% of our seniors have not had their portraits done yet! If your child has not had their senior portrait taken, Ms. Jen Seay has graciously offered to do a free portrait session for seniors on December 13th.  Interested seniors should sign up in advance for a spot using the link https://signup.com/go/uEUEvHU. The session is free, but each student will receive information about purchasing prints, if they so choose. Otherwise, they will not receive a copy of their portraits; Jen Seay will only be sharing them with Ms. Ault to include in the yearbook. The portrait session will take place during 4th period on December 13th, in the Media Center. Students should arrive five minutes before their sign-up time and should only be out of class 10-15 minutes. Ladies need to wear a tank top (they will need to bare their shoulders for the drape) & gentlemen need to wear a white t-shirt (Ms. Seay will provide the tux). If a student does not submit a portrait by the deadline, we will be using their current X2 photo so they will at least be included in the yearbook.
  • Senior portraits are due by December 19th. If your senior has already had their portrait taken, they should check with their photographer to make sure the portraits are sent to Mrs. Ault! Seniors can check with Ms. Ault to see if she has received their correct portrait already.
  • Senior ads are still available, but space is limited! You can purchase and create a senior ad online at www.balfour.com.
  • Yearbooks are still on sale. Preorder at www.balfour.com or send in cash/check with your child to give to Ms. Ault. The cost is $70.
