PARENTS OF CURRENT JUNIORS
Life Touch Studios is coming back to MHS on June 11 – 13 for another round of senior portrait appointments.  Appointment postcards will be sent to homes in a few days.  Appointments are also posted outside Carol Scheffler’s office  – have your child stop by to find theirs.  Remember, the sooner your child takes their senior portrait the sooner you can check it off your “to-do” list, and the more time they have to schedule a retake, should one be necessary.
