PHOTO MONTAGE
 
ALL GRADES ARE INVITED TO PARTICIPATE!
Calling ALL parents!  Traditionally, a montage of photos, from kindergarten through 8th grade, is prepared and presented to the students at their 8th grade dance. This montage is then sent to the graduating class as a gift from the PTO.  In an effort to reduce the amount of time spent scrambling for photos during your child's graduation year, we have created dedicated email addresses for each grade.  Please send any school related photos you may have to the appropriate email address below.  We may not be able to gather many new photos this year, but we can spend some time this year looking through old photos and submit what we have.  If you were a parent volunteer at any of these events we would very much appreciate any group photos you have. Examples include: Class Parties, Class Trips, Field Day, Halloween Parade, Band or Choir Performances, School Sports (track, basketball, baseball, softball or soccer), PTO Events, or any other School Function.  Please follow these steps:
  • Include your child's name and the school event and year the photo was taken. 
  • Email photos to: ClassOf(Graduation year)@coltsneckpto.org. Replace (Graduation year) with your child's year, using the chart below.
