LAST DAY FOR RETAKES!!!
STUDENT PHOTOS & ID PICTURES RETAKES:
TODAY will be the last retake day! It is important that ALL students in grades 9, 10, 11, and 12 have their pictures taken, even if they are not purchasing photos. These photos are needed to update student ID cards, used in Power School, and also used for underclass photos in the Yearbook. Also, photo ID cards are now required for entrance to the SAT test. THERE IS NO COST for this. Students pay only if they choose to purchase a package. Please encourage everyone to have their photos updated as their appearances often change dramatically over the summer! FORMS ARE AVAILABLE AT THE MAIN OFFICE. Please also note the forms must be handed to the photographer at the time photo is taken. For the seniors, these ID pictures are not to be confused with their formal senior portraits. They should still get an updated ID photo taken for school purposes.
Please remind students that appropriate dressed is required—no hats, tank tops, low cut blouses, etc.

SKI CLUB:
Please see Mr. Lazzaro for forms to ski and snowboard at Catamount this winter. The deadline for returning the forms is November 1st.
