Yearbook Picture Re-Takes 9/28

Picture Re-Takes are on Thursday 9/28, starting with 7th graders during connections classes.

Mrs. Pettett has a schedule that PTSA moms and some yearbook staffers will be using to go to each classroom to check for any students new to Mabry, or students that didn't make it to charger day for their pics, or students that had a mistake on their picture(eyes closed, silly face, etc.). If this is the case(a mistake) you must bring your old pic in with the mistake on it, to give back to photographers to get your new picture.

New to Mabry, or students that want to purchase picture packages that missed charger day will have money envelopes available to them through their HomeRoom teachers to fill out and bring on re-take day.

** even if you don't want to buy a picture package, every new to Mabry and students that missed charger day, must take a picture for the yearbook at this re-take time!

**** If you are absent for re-takes or students that come to Mabry after re-take time, you must contact Ms. McCall to have your picture taken by yearbook staff.

Meeting reminder 8/30

Just  a reminder to the yearbook staff of our first meeting this Wednesday from 4:30-6:00pm

Our new classroom is in the 6th grade wing. After entering 6th grade wing go to the right and look for our sign on a very small classroom door.

Be there with ideas for our theme this year "Bright & Bold"....come with some ideas on how to incorporate this theme with articles, stories, and surveys we can use in this year's  book.

We will be setting the ladder first, then I will be assigning layouts to staffers, which you can do individually or in a small group. Be thinking of layouts and spreads you would want to do.

also, camera and computer training if time, if not, you must set up a time where i can teach you some of the computer program that we use.

Remember to have your snacks already and a ride home pre-arranged.

See ya, T-Mac
