Understand you will have to make-up any missed work if you choose to come down for the presentations.

Attention Students in Dual Credit Courses: Deadlines for Dual Credit Enrollment are fast approaching. Each college has different deadlines. Please talk with your teachers and check the Counseling Website for clarification. If you are interested in a Dual Credit scholarship, pick up an application from Mrs. Raney in the Counseling Center.

 

Retake day for yearbook pictures for underclass and staff will be on Friday, October 26 in TAP in the small gym.  No seniors will be photographed on this day.

 

If you had your picture taken for the yearbook already and didn't have your order form but would like to order yearbook portrait pictures, you can order them online at www.WagnerPortraitGroup.com and use the password LATE to order photos.

 

Mehlville Drama Club Family Fun Night at DQ on Lindbergh is Monday, September 24th from 5:00 – 8:00 pm.  Come out, treat your family and support your club! 

 

SENIORS:  Last chance picture days for SENIORS will be in TAP on Friday, Oct. 12 and Monday, Oct. 22.  

 

The yearbook photo session is free, so we suggest to seniors to go into Wagner Portrait Studio to make an appointment before October if you want to take your time and get the best photo possible.  You can still call them to make an appointment if you missed your summer appointment at 314-567-5900.  If you don't go into the studio, you can take it here quickly at school on one of these two dates in October.  

 

We have posted a list on the corkboard outside the cafeteria in the hallway on the yearbook bulletin board which names which seniors have already been photographed or not if you would like to check.  This list is updated as of last week.
