Senior Memory Frames 

What?
A senior memory frame is a 12x18 photo collage highlighting the life of each senior. If you didn’t pre-order at DonsDays you can find a similar frame at Michael’s. 

When?
The pre-ordered frames can be picked up after April 12th in the College and Career Center.  
Completed frames should be returned to the CCC by Friday, June 2nd. 
If your frame is turned in late we will make every effort to display it, but it may not be in alphabetical order.

How?
Arrange as many photos for the frame vertically. Please incorporate your child’s first and last name on the front of the collage and put your name and phone number on the back. Please copy all photos in case your student’s frame is lost or damaged. You may also create your collage digitally online through Costco, Staples and Click-Scan-Share, just to name a few.  It only costs a few dollars for a 12 x 18 print, so you can make an extra for your grad to take to college or for the grandparents.  

Where?
The boards will be displayed vertically, by alphabet, on the fence behind the bleachers on graduation day, Friday, June 9h. 
Please pick up your frame directly after graduation day and take it home with you.  Frames that get left behind will be moved to the College and Career center and can be picked up the following Monday.

A Great Gift for Graduating Seniors

This first aid kit was especially designed for graduating seniors to have available while on the road or away at school by School Nurse Dvora Citron. It is a great opportunity to use for a dialogue about self-care and wellness with your emerging young adults.  Dvora Citron is happy to meet with you to discuss including more resources! Buy Online
