Sixth Grade Pictures Needed
The yearbook features a section of numbered 6th grade student baby pictures with an upside down answer key. This has been a fun feature for the 6th grade section of the yearbook for a number of years and we would like to carry on the tradition with this class. Would you please email, scan and email or send a baby picture of your child before the winter break. If you send a photo to school I will scan and return as soon as possible. The email address is email@example.com. Scanning and emailing is best at 300 dpi for the page in the yearbook. Your help in creating this page is appreciated!
