A: Go to the PAC, and they will direct you from there.

A. Wear an undershirt and bring several of your favorite outfits.
Q: Should I take a photo?

Q: What if I want to submit a personal photo?
A: First, take your photo with Lifetouch on Senior Picture Day in the PAC and then do your private setting. Submit the private one by October 1st to Ms. Ewing at email@example.com.
