  • REVISED TA picture scheduleSmile for the camera! It’s Day-3 of TA pictures for the 2020 Yearbook. Here’s the rundown: 8th grade TAs will be photographed today and tomorrow — 7th grade TAs will be lnext Monday and Tuesday — and all grade-level Make-ups and retakes will be shot on January 29th and 30th.

    The photographers will be arranging you into 2-lines for the picture… OR, if you’re feeling more imaginative — you’re encouraged to creatively stage and arrange yourself for the picture. Just be sure to practice your pose in advance — and make sure we can see everyone’s faces! See Mr. Schonfeld with any questions about the TA pictures.
