SCHOOL PICTURE RETAKES 

Pictures were handed out in homeroom on Wednesday for those students who had their picture taken on August 13th.

On Wednesday, October 17 from 8 AM-1:00 PM Lifetouch will be at AHS to take pictures of students who DID NOT have their pictures taken on August 13, and also for those students who had their pictures taken but are not happy with their picture package. If you are wanting a retake, students need to bring their entire picture package back to the photographer when they have their picture retaken. We encourage all 9th through 11th graders to have their picture taken regardless of whether a package is purchased. These pictures are used for next year’s IDs as well as yearbook pictures.
