Grad Photos set for January 21st


Wednesday, January 21st, is Graduation Photo Day at Springman.  At their indicated times, students will go to our Wildcat Commons where their height will be measured for their graduation gowns (thank you to our parent volunteers!) and Color Portraits will take their photos.  Two types of photos per student will be taken: one in dress clothes, one in graduation gown (no hat).  Students do not need to bring any money for payment of pictures on the day the photos are taken.  Rather, students will pay for photos after seeing their proofs and selecting a photo package.

Please note the following regarding attire:
For Gown Photos - Boys should wear a button-down shirt and tie.  Girls should avoid high neck tops or dresses.
For Dress Clothes Photos - All attire should be appropriate for school and follow our school dress code.

We do not yet have the date for retakes but will share it with you as soon as it is available.  Instructions on retake procedures will be shared once the date is identified. Thank you for helping your children be ready for graduation photo day - we know you'll cherish these portraits!
