A reminder that tomorrow is photo retake day.  If your child was absent for the first photo day they will automatically be sent to have their picture taken.  As well, I have compiled a list of students whose parents have informed me that they would like a retake done and will communicate that to the photographers and your child's teacher to ensure their picture is taken. 

Photo retakes will take place first thing in the morning so it is important that your child is on time for school so they don't miss this opportunity.

If you have not already notified me that you wish your child to have a retake please call the office before 9:00 am tomorrow or let your child's classroom teacher know.  Please do not email me as I am unfortunately away sick and will not see the emails in time.
