    Yearbook Staff Looking for Support!

    Work on our treasured yearbook has already begun but we are in need of a photographer for the upper grades.

    Currently the yearbook staff represents early childhood, early grades and high school but there is no one representing grades 4 - 8. Please contact Gina Illes in the

    Office if you can help with this very rewarding project.

    We also need a 27" monitor so we can work more efficiently with the pictures.  If you have one to donate to the school please bring it in to the front office.
