We need your help with our Yearbook! This year it has been a challenge to create a school yearbook. All students participating in Picture Days in January & February will be included with the class pages. In addition, we are asking parents/guardians to share up to 3 photos of their student if they wish. The firm deadline for these images will be Monday, January 25. These are the 3 types of photos of your student we are looking for: a head and shoulder picture, an image of them actively learning (on iPad, reading, etc...), and an image of them involved in a hobby, extracurricular activity, or involvement outside the classroom. For privacy purposes, we ask that other people (siblings and friends) not be in the picture with your student, and that virtual learning images should not show the screen. We cannot guarantee that all of your images will be in the yearbook. Please use your student's iPad to take and submit pictures to help with quality/resolution. Click on the title of this article for the photo submission link.
Don't forget to order your Tri-North 2020-2021 Yearbook! This will truly be a year to remember – how we ARMOR’d up and attended school differently, whether in-person or online. Plus, our yearbook will document the last school year in this building. Yearbooks are hard-cover with cover art designed by students and the entire book is full-color. Order yours now for just $20 online at jostensyearbooks.com or by calling 1-877-767-5217. The deadline has been extended to February 26. Don't miss out!
SCHOOL PICTURE DAY for in-person students will be Tuesday & Wednesday, January 26 & 27. Photos will be distributed at school about 2 weeks later. PICTURE RETAKE DAY, for students that were absent on picture day or would like retakes, will be in the afternoon on Tuesday & Wednesday, February 16 & 17. ONLINE STUDENT PICTURE DAY will be offered at Tri-North on Tuesday, February 16, from 3:30-4:30 pm and on Wednesday, February 17, from 5-6 pm. Students will enter through the Main Entrance, have their photo taken in the Auditorium, and return to their family’s waiting vehicle. Students will wear a mask (except for during the photo) and maintain social distancing; the process should only take a few minutes. PICTURE ORDER FORMS were sent home with November report cards. Extra forms are available in the office or by clicking on the title of this article. Orders and payments should be given directly to the photographer on your Picture Day. All students may have their photo taken for inclusion in the yearbook.
