Senior Announcement

Class of 2024

Picture Day for all Seniors will be on Wednesday, October 4 beginning at 7:45 a.m. This is for the composite picture on the wall. Students may also purchase pictures at this time if you wish to do so, but you do not have to purchase the pictures to be on the wall. The CTC bus will be instructed to wait until the seniors have taken their pictures before leaving for the Trade School. CTC Seniors will have their pictures taken first.

All students are required to dress appropriately. Men: dress shirt and tie, if you would like to wear a suit jacket that would be wonderful, but not required. You will only be photographed from the waist up; therefore, you don’t need to worry about dress pants. If you need to borrow a shirt/tie, it’s no problem, please let me know ahead of time so we can put your name on it and I will know what to bring.

 Young women: Please dress nicely and appropriately, nothing that is against the Western dress code (see the student handbook). Again, you will only be photographed from the waist up; therefore, you do not need to worry about dress slacks.

 If you have any questions, please give me a call.

Thank you
