School Photographs for grades 9 and 10 are scheduled for 10:30 am this Friday, September 15.  Grades 11 and 12 will have their photos taken next Tuesday, September 19, also at 10:30 am.  Pictures are used for school ID cards, and individual and class photos are available for purchase – they’ll be available for viewing in a secure site online in a few weeks.  You can pay by check with the order form or order by phone and have the photos delivered to PWS to be sent home with your student; or you can order online, pay a shipping fee, and have the photos mailed to your home. Copies of the order form and instructions are attached, and hard copies are available in the HS Office.  Please let us know if you’d like us to send a form home with your student.

Welcome, Rochelle!   Some of you may already have met Rochelle Giametta, who will be working with Kate McGill and Michelle Averill in the HS Office this year.  She’ll be at the front desk from 10:30 to 2:30 on school days, answering questions, directing visitors, and helping to keep the HS top spinning in the right direction.  Rochelle is a parent in Grades 5 and 7, with all the resourcefulness and determination which that implies, and we’re delighted to have her!
