November 7, 2008

The yearbook staff is doing a feature story on what activities students do after school such as ballet, hockey, horseback riding, etc. Please submit pictures along with information about your activity to Mrs. Devlin's mailbox in the main office.

Attention seniors - There is a list of seniors who have had their senior picture taken for the yearbook on the Capitoline web page. To guarantee we have an accurate list, seniors must check this list and report any questions or concerns to Mrs. Devlin or any yearbook staff member. You can access the Capitoline web page by going to the school web site and clicking on Clubs and then Capitoline.
