Fall Retake Picture Day:  Thursday, November 15th is the day for RETAKE Fall Pictures   These pictures are for new students since October 10th, and those students who missed taking a picture on October 10th, or those who wish to retake pictures.  Students who are new or who were absent on the last picture day will be getting Strawbridge order forms home in their backpacks tomorrow.  Those who wish to have retakes taken should return the original pictures in the packet from Strawbridge in order to have a new picture taken on the 15th; this will let the teacher know that your child should have a retake.
