GROUP AND INDIVIDUAL PHOTOS
Brian Derenski Photography will be here Friday morning to take our band photos again this year. This is an early morning event and everyone will be in full uniform. Treat this as an early morning practice and plan to arrive at 7:00AM to get into uniform and be ready for photos. Every student will be photographed even if no photos are purchased, so please download the order form and fill in the student info and just write "No Order" in the payment area. Order forms will also be sent home this week.
Here is the information link from Brian Derenski Photography. Please take a moment to read the info and share with your student, so everyone is in the same page.
