picture re-takes

Ripcho Studio will be at SMS on Wednesday, November 28th for picture re-takes, starting at 7:30 on the stage. They will also be taking the 8th grade long shot that day. 

Re-take order forms are available in the main office- you only need to fill out an order form if you are ordering for the first time. If you already had your picture taken, and want to get it retaken, just bring your old photos and give it to the photographer.  Long shot order forms will be sent home (8th grade only).
