Graduation Portraits

Graduation Cap

Candid Color will be returning to HHS to offer another opportunity for students to take
graduation portraits. Candid Color provides the graduation gown. These pictures will be on
Monday, March 16 from 9AM-1PM. If a student is interested, he or she must sign up for a slot in the
main office and bring the $20 sitting fee on the day of pictures.

Special Note: If an honor student took the portraits on the original date of Feb 14
and did not get to wear the multi-colored honor cord, then he or she can retake the portraits
without paying the sitting fee, but that student must also sign up for a time slot.
