Faculty and staff, if you took your picture but did not receive your complimentary packet, please email Ms. Gray ASAP.
Retakes will be next Monday, November 18 from noon to 2 p.m. Students, if you plan to come during your 7th hour, you need to sign up with Ms. Gray for a time. Faculty and staff, if you haven’t taken your picture yet, please consider coming to the auditorium during lunch that day.
