Senior Portraits - Bell Studios, November 29th

Dear Parents and Seniors:

We are pleased to announce that it is time to take our annual senior class photo! These pictures will be displayed as a collage and hung in our commons area for all to see. It is a tradition that was started years ago and one that we are proud to continue with the Class of 2024.

Bell Studios will photograph the seniors on Wednesday, November 29, beginning at 8:30 a.m. and ending at 11:30 a.m. Running Start students may arrive at 8:15 a.m. Each student will be asked to dress according to the guidelines listed below. We will have a few clothing options available for students who forget or need clothes last minute to meet the required guidelines. Students will need to bring $15 to the office for the sitting fee. If they do not pay prior to the event, this will be added as a fine to their student account to be paid before graduation. Students will also have the opportunity to buy packages from Bell Studios online at bellimaging.com. The $15 charge helps to cover costs of sitting fees, the large composite photo that will hang in the commons, and all pictures are professionally touched up and ready for the yearbook. If you DO NOT have your picture taken, you will not be charged a $15 fee. We hope you will participate in this memorable group photo. 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION regarding this photo session: These are the photographs that will be used by our local newspapers for their senior sections that run in the spring. If your senior does not have their photo taken on this day, they will not have their photo in the newspapers. This picture will be used for the senior portrait in the school yearbook if you do not submit a professional photo of your own.  

If you have any questions, please contact the high school office at 360-841-2800.
