Formal portraits are the showcase of The Chronicle. Ladies should select a solid color top with three-quarter or long sleeves, with either collar, scoop or v-neck style. Gentlemen should select a dark, solid color button down or collared shirt. A tie or jacket may be worn.

Look your best. All portraits are taken with a traditional background. Darker clothing provides strong contrast. Lighter colors, patterns, ruffles, stripes and scarves may not produce the best formal portrait. T-shirts, tank tops, hoodies, sweatshirts, spaghetti straps, undergarments and strapless garments are not appropriate clothing choices for portraits.

Faculty, Staff and Underclassmen:
Art Rich Photography will take your picture at school. Watch for the dates in September and October. There is no fee for official yearbook photographs. You may purchase photographs directly from the studio.

Photos can be uploaded electronically. Photos must be labeled with student names and instructions for return. We reserve the right to accept and edit submissions in accordance with our guidelines.

All material submitted for publication is subject to review by yearbook staff and the advisor.

The yearbook is a student publication. Students are welcome to bring ideas for new page designs and create custom designed layouts. Look for the Aurasma app on the Orchestra page of the 2017 Chronicle to listen to our musicians "live" in the yearbook.
