|Get ready for SSHS schedule pick-up, senior portraits|
|From Staff Reports|
July 26, 2006 -- Classes don't start at Sulphur Springs High School until Aug. 14, but a number of activities are already under way, including senior pictures, schedule pick-ups and orientation.
Any SSHS senior who has not already scheduled an appointment to have their senior portrait taken is encouraged to do so as soon as possible. Prestige/Lifetouch will be taking senior portraits Monday-Wednesday, Aug. 7-9, in the conference center at SSHS. Only senior portraits taken by Prestige/Lifetouch will be used for the yearbook, so those seniors not yet assigned a time to have their pictures made should contact the company at 903-581-4321.
Schedule pick-up and freshman orientation
Friday, Aug. 11, has been designated for students to pick up their schedules. Freshmen students will get their schedules between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. during freshmen orientation. All other students may pick up their schedules from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. in the high school cafeteria that day.
Students picking up schedules should remember that their immunization records and the previous year's records must both be cleared before they can get their schedules.
Should any schedule changes be needed or scheduling problems arise, the student should sign up on a list in the cafeteria so the counselors will know that changes need to be made. Students should keep in mind, however, that changes will be minimal, according to the school office.
While getting schedules, students may also get their handbooks, which can be particularly useful when purchasing new school clothes or planning for the new year, according to SSHS academic specialist Kristin Monk.
