Senior Pictures

One of the most difficult tasks yearbook advisers encounter each year is the process of getting all the senior students photographed and in the yearbook within their yearbook deadline time frame. The solution is to get as many students to the camera as early as possible to alleviate the last minute rush to the deadline.  Seniors should plan to take pictures at KGHS:

July 12, 2016 10 AM-5 PM, or

July 13, 2016 9 AM-3 PM, or

July 14, 2016 9 AM- 2 PM.

The make up day will be August 31, 2016 from 9 AM-1 PM.  Specific information will be mailed home by Strawbridge Studios.  The contact information for Strawbridge Studios is 866-624-6229 if you need assistance.

If you have questions regarding your student's participation in any of these events, please contact his or her counselor:
Mrs. LaPonte - tlaponte@kgcs.k12.va.us - ext. 3204
