Looking for Potential Pictures for Yearbook!

The yearbook committee needs your help! They would like to present to you some ways that parents and staff can share their pictures with the committee for consideration for the yearbook.

Option #1: You can install the Entourage Yearbooks App which is secure and is available on Android and Apple.

Option #2: You can simply email the photos to the corresponding event email address listed in this document. This document contains a listing of all the 'events' we created on the yearbook website. Next to each event is an email address. All you need to do is copy that email address and enter it into any email client and then attach your photos to the email and hit send. Please do NOT drag and drop and embed your photos into the email. You need to click the 'paperclip' icon and add the photos as an attachment in order for them to get to us on the website. This method requires no installing of apps or additional plug in features. 

We hope these options are helpful to all and we are sure everyone's photo contributions will be helpful to our yearbook committee when putting together this years book.
