PHOTO DAY...Say Cheese!

Get ready Kennedy P.S.!

Photo Day is: Wednesday, October 14th, 2015

Back to School! It’s the start of a new school year and time for annual school portraits!

Helpful Hints for a Picture Perfect Pose:

1. Smile: Practice with your child on how to get a beautiful big smile in front of the camera.

2. What to Wear: For best results we recommend wearing bright, solid coloured clothing.

3. Sleep: Make sure your child gets a good night sleep and wakes up a bit early so you can style their hair for photo day.

Photo proofs will be sent home with your child approximately two weeks after photo day to place an order. Please note, a class group photo will also be taken on photo day.

A great way to start the year!

Kennedy P.S. (Toronto District School Board), has accepted the ALS ice bucket challenge nominated by one of our teachers. Thanks to the support of our staff, students and parents, Kennedy P.S. is donating $500 to ALS Society of Canada. This was a great activity to bring our school together and bring awareness of this disease to our community. We hope our small contributions will help those affected by this disease and one day, a cure will be found. We are now nominating all ER18 schools!
