School Picture Day Help Needed
On Friday September 23rd, Coffee Pond Photography will be at the school taking pictures of the students individually, as well as class pictures. Information about purchasing school photos will be coming home shortly in you child’s home-school folder. Please know that every child, regardless of purchasing individual photos, will receive a copy of their class photo. In order for the day to run smoothly, we need additional volunteers to help. Between fixing hair and making kids smile, your help would be appreciated! The photos run from 8:30am to 11:30am typically. Please sign up on the google doc if you have an hour, or three, to give on the 23rd. Volunteers will be given a free photo package from Coffee Pond Photography.
