Senior Group Photos

Group photos are taken for the end pages in the yearbook.  Traditionally, the first photo is taken early in the year and the second is taken on Halloween when all the seniors are wearing their costumes.  We assemble in the gym, with the photographer arranging everyone around the Redhawk logo on the gym floor.  We ask that everyone be on time, ready to organize themselves and get the photo taken so that the process can be efficient.  
  • First Photo: Monday, September 22 (Blue 1 Day), 7:30am prompt
  • Second Photo: Friday, October 31 (Blue 2 Day), Time TBD
