  • Mrs. Kim needs Senior pictures for the Band Banquet video ASAP!  Please email those to her if at all possible!  If you can't email them, send a hard copy to the school and have your student take them to her in the main office in a sealed envelope.  These will be returned to you after the banquet in May.  If you don't send pictures your senior will not be included on the senior DVD at the banquet!  The deadline to turn in these pictures to Mrs. Kim is TOMORROW!
