    Senior Portraits @ Teacher's Cafeteria

    Senior Portraits will be taken by Prestige via Lifetouch.

    • 1st Round: 10/8-10/12: 4PM-8PM in the Teacher’s Cafeteria
    • 2nd Round: 11/26-11/29: 4PM-8PM in the Teacher’s Cafeteria
    • 3rd Round: 1/15/19

    Prestige Portraits mailed letters to seniors and their parents/guardians at the end of Sept. which included a separate card with each student’s scheduled appointment date and time along with a confirmation code. For those who did not receive a letter, here is the master list. You must confirm or change your appointment at prestigeportraits.com. Simply input the code and follow the directions. Students who cannot make their scheduled Oct. appointment will be rescheduled for the Nov. session.

    The appointment list is also posted on the main campus outside of the Attendance and Main offices, the Counseling office, and the Treasurer’s office. Students on the Upper Campus may check in the UC office — Ms. Bryan will give you your appointment and appointment code.

    Lastly, there is a $10 fee to take your photos, even if you choose not to purchase them. Lifetouch has waived the $50.00 deposit for all seniors. Seniors who choose not to take a photo will not have their photo in the yearbook. Seniors who take their photo with other photographers will not get their photo in the yearbook.

    Please contact Mrs. Sudduth at dana.sudduth@ousd.org for more information.

    College App Essay Help @ College & Career Center (Room 16, lower level)
    Nov 27 @ 3:30pm
    College App Essay Help @ College & Career Center (Room 16, lower level)
    College Essay Mentors provide FREE assistance with college application essays (UC personal insight statements, Common App essays supplements, and others) on a first-come, first-serve basis, Tuesdays, from 3:30-4:45 PM, in the College & Career Center in Room 16.
     
    Mentors are professional writers seeking to support students — especially those who do not have access to professional college counselors. For a student with inconsistent grades or a deeper story to tell, the essay can make a huge difference in admissions. Students do not need to have drafted essays to come in for help.
