Announcements for Parents – #Robinmicklems:

Spring Picture Day is scheduled for Today, March 8th.  All students will be photographed during one of their morning classes.  No money is needed at this time.  Proofs will be sent home for adults to review before any purchase decisions need to be made.  Students will be photographed with a picture scene behind them (different from fall yearbook pictures).  A default scene will be used.  Families may preselect a different background if you choose.  Background choice sheets were available at conferences.  If you would like another copy of the form, have your student come to the office and pick up another BY THE END OF THE DAY ON WEDNESDAY.  A scanned black and white version of the same is available on our Mickle site and can be viewed at
