Pictures needed for our School Yearbook!
This is a plea for your help!!!!! I am working on the 2018-19 yearbook and I am in desperate need of pictures from you. Any photos of classroom parties, any school events, and/or sporting events are needed to fill the pages of our upcoming yearbook. I would greatly appreciate any contributions. Photos can be submitted via email if you have a few that you want to share. If you have a larger number of photos to share, then you could also send them to school copied to a flash drive or CD and mark them to the attention Mrs. Oskorep. I will be prompt in copying the images and returning the materials to you. (If you wish to send actual photos, then I can scan them and return the photos to you.)
PLEASE submit your images as soon as possible.
