Yearbook chairs needed for 2016-2017 school year

It may seem early to think about your child graduating LCS next year, but it will be here before you know it! One of the keepsakes they love most is the YEARBOOK! Please consider chairing or working on the Yearbook committee next year. Our photography team has spent countless hours over the years snapping pics at many events-you will have access to all of these. We can supply you with past yearbooks for ideas…and this year, Dr. Oliver has signed on with Lifetouch for school photos. They will be happy to assist you in putting together your child’s keepsake. The rep is available to meet at anytime. Thanks for considering this important committee and ensuring that your child’s graduating class has a Yearbook. Please email Jessica Flores or Lisa LaTourette if you are interested.
