School Picture Packet

Elementary pictures will be Tuesday, Aug 22 from 3-7 pm in conjunction with the open house. Jr High/High School will have their pictures taken Friday, Aug 25.

Tuesday, August 22 from 3-7 pm
Parents & Students in Grades ½ Kdg - 12

The primary goal of the open house is to allow parents and students the opportunity to meet their classroom teachers, explore their classrooms, pay school fees, put school supplies away, and to complete the necessary beginning of the school year paperwork. Students in grade 7-12 are expected to stop in the high school to check their schedules, pick out their lockers, and check out their laptop computers. The teachers will be in their respective classrooms and want to visit with you.

Pictures for students in grades 7-11 will be taken at the high school building on Friday, August 25.
Elementary students will have their individual school pictures taken by Mark VanDerWerff during the open house event. Mark will be located in the multipurpose room gym. Picture packets will be available outside of the multipurpose room.

Elementary parents are asked to please stop in the gym during the open house to see Mrs. Tana Huizenga or Mrs. Jennifer Knecht. Parents will have the opportunity to receive their Infinite Campus usernames and passwords, sign up for the school messenger notifications throughout the school year, and make sure their email addresses are on file with the school.

All elementary parents should have received a “Welcome Back to School” email from Mrs. Knecht and all parents will be receiving a school messenger notification on Monday, August 21. If you do not receive the email or school messenger notification, you will need to make sure the district has your correct information on file.
