Grad Photos Retakes:  All grads must have a photo taken for the yearbook, the commencement ceremony slide show, the yearbook, the composite wall photo and the newspaper.

If you know you don't want to order a photo package there is no fee.  You can book your appointment online at www.mountainwest.ca.  Photo retakes will take place February 13th & 14th.
