picture make-up day

School pictures were distributed yesterday.  School picture Make-up day will be Tuesday, January 20.


If you were absent on Picture Day, want your picture retaken, or just want to order another portrait package, you will have a second chance.  

 If you want your picture retaken, you MUST bring a letter signed by your parent requesting a retake and return the original picture set before the retake is done (on January 20th).


If you were absent for the first picture day and want to buy a set of pictures or you want to order additional pictures, YOU MUST PAY FOR THEM BEFORE THE PHOTOGRAPHER TAKES THE PICTURE on January 20th.  There is no charge for retakes.


If you have any questions about the pictures or the procedure, please see Mr. Comparetto or Ms. McCaffrey.  Click here for the letter which was sent with pictures.

8th grade families  

high school applications - from ms. jalayer
This past Friday, 12/12/14, some 8th grade students may have received a yellow letter with suggestions attached to a copy of their high school application with a new blank application.

Parents/Guardians are asked to consider these suggestions and make changes and/or can choose to keep the application the same. These are only suggestions that we feel may help optimize the chance of a student receiving a match. It is ultimately a parent/guardians decision what they choose to put on the high school application. 

The return due date for all yellow letters and applications was Wednesday, 12/17/14. All students who received a yellow letter must return it, even if they want to keep the application the same. If you need more time, please make sure Ms. Jalayer receives any changes to the application by the end of the week, in order for changes to be made and entered into the HS system.
