Senior portraits are due on October 20

Follow this link is to a letter from The Key Yearbook Staff for parents and seniors. The letter contains detailed information about the deadlines and submission specifications for senior portraits and senior tribute ads, instructions for how to purchase yearbooks, and more!

Seniors who haven't scheduled a portrait session yet should do so immediately. Our official school photographer, Mark Lawrence Photographers, has affordable packages and will be happy to work with you get your session scheduled in time for the yearbook deadline.
You are all invited on Thursday evening at 6:30pm to attend a presentation in the BBX theater. Ryan's Story is a presentation that will be shared with our 9th and 10th grade students during the day on Thursday. The parent presentation is not the same as what students will see and provides a much more practical presentation on lessons learned from a horrific experience. John Halligan has spoken to over a million students and their parents since he began his campaign to stop aggressive social behaviors amongst young people. We hope to see you there.
