Attention: Class of 2018 (current juniors)

The first date incoming seniors will want to take advantage of for senior portraits this summer is June 8th , and the second date is July 26thIf you wait until September to take your picture you will not have an opportunity to make any changes!  That’s because September is the retake date, and all senior pictures are scheduled over the summer to allow for more time with the photographer and let them choose their yearbook picture.  If you don’t take your senior picture over the summer, you will only have the one taken on the retake date in September to use!
