Please read this yada yada the first time you arrive here; then you don't need to read it ever again.

If you have a high speed Internet connection, you can use the link that brings up all pages at once as one page. If you have a slower connection, you may want to view each page separately.

Clicking on the small thumbnail photos will take you to a page that contains a larger photo, about 1000 x 800 pixels, plus the senior picture. This size photo is fine for on-line viewing or small prints.

If you are a member of the class, you have a CD with these pictures at high resolution, about 3000 x 2400 pixels. This size is good if you want to make a print 8 x 10 or larger.

If you or someone else wants to access one of these large photos on-line, send Email and we will upload the photo and notify you. Give the Email address where you want notification sent.
