Greetings, neighbors!

May this week and the coming year be all you wish for.

Yearbook staff seeks photos of students

Some news from yearbook adviser Steph Shingleton at Boonsboro High School: Out of 256 graduating seniors, the staff is missing 37 senior photos to put in the 2008-09 yearbook.

Please make sure you get yours in to the yearbook staff.

Also, on the BHS Web site, there is now a link to the Herff Jones site, eShare. On that site, students, parents and teachers can upload photos of field trips, sporting events, school and community activities, or just pictures of students for potential use in this year's book. The separate site on the Web is if not reached through the board site.
