Picture Day on Sep 26!

posted Sep 20, 2010, 8:00 PM by Balkee Balakrishnan   [ updated Sep 21, 2010, 4:00 AM ]

We will be taking class pictures this Sunday.  It would be nice if children wore colorful Indian outfits!

Please note that it will be a regular class day!

The pictures will be taken by Vijay Khatri.  He will be taking pictures of all 18 classes on one day.  So there's just about 3 minutes for each class.  Each class will be led by volunteers and the teacher to where Vijay is taking the pictures and taken back to class.

Please do not ask Vijay to take additional pictures, etc. of individual children or groups of children with or without parents.  Also, if YOU want to take their pictures, by all means do so before or after class!

If parents are interested, they can join a Parents' picture.

Thank you for your help!
