2017 Marching Band Picture Day – REVISED

Dear Marching Band families,

DUE TO POOR AIR QUALITY, Marching Band Picture Day has been moved to Wednesday, December 13th on the Santa Monica Pier. 

FOR STUDENTS:  Please meet near the carousel on the Santa Monica Pier at 7:00 am on Wednesday, December 13th. Wear you hair however you would like it to look in photos. Please bring picture order forms to the Pier. Do not bring order forms to Samohi.

DON’T FORGET YOUR DINKLES!

Front Ensemble members:  If you do not have Dinkles, please contact your instructor Mariam Kaddoura ASAP. There will be Dinkles available for you to borrow on picture day, but we need to know your size!

FOR PARENTS:  Mr. McKeown is making arrangements to bring the musicians’ uniforms to the Pier. He will give the students any other instructions they need. Typically, all group and individual photos are finished in plenty of time for students to walk from the Pier to their first period classes on campus. On December 13th – a Late Start Wednesday – Period 1 class begins at 9:38 am.

If you would like to order photos, please ask your student for the order form from YARY PHOTOGRAPHY. You can pay by cash or check in the envelope. Credit cards are accepted, but you must call at least 48 hours to picture day to get credit card approval.

You may also order photos online at yaryphoto.com. Just click on “PRE-ORDER” at the top of the page, and then use the search bar to search for “Santa Monica.” After you enter your email address, you will see a list of available photo packages. This is a good option, if you are afraid your student will forget to bring the order envelope on Picture Day.
