SENIOR PORTRAITS

Senior Portraits will be available on campus again this year for seniors who only wish to have a yearbook headshot taken. Should students wish for a full senior photo package with additional poses they can still book through giganteproductions.com Headshots for the yearbook will be offered from the second week of school through November 15th for just a $5 sitting fee. Prints will be available for purchase through Gigante (instructions will be provided).

The on campus option is meant to maximize convenience for students. If a senior takes a headshot for the yearbook on campus they may also still book a full personality package at Gigante after December if they wish.

IMPORTANT POINTS TO REMEMBER:

  • COMPLETE THIS SHORT FORM BEFORE YOU ATTEND
  • Cost is just $5 (exact change or check)
  • Boys – shirt, tie and tux jacket are provided, a basic WHITE t-shirt to wear under that will make things easier
  • Girls – black drape is provided – it is MUCH more convenient if you wear a tank top
  • BE ON TIME
  • BOOK EARLY – we cannot fit everyone in the final days…

Appointments are to be made in person with Mr. Carlson in 1-115, and run from 7:15-2:25 each day. Students should NOT book times that take them out of classes.
