Oct. 21: School Portrait Make-Up & Retake Day

Middle School yearbook photo make-up and retake day is scheduled for the morning of Wednesday, Oct. 21 in the Boyd Gym Lobby. Virtual students should have their photos taken between 7 and 7:45 a.m. 

Please take the time to review your child’s yearbook photos. Visit www.gemshots.com, select Student Portraits, then Click here to continue. Enter your password. Your password is your phone number on file with Pace. Enter the number without dots, dashes or spaces (for example, 4041234567). 

All children in a family will appear in one gallery. The image that is ordered will be used in the yearbook; if a family chooses not to order a photo, Gemshots will select the image to appear in the yearbook. If retouching is purchased, the retouched image will be used in the yearbook. UPDATE: Some families purchased images of their student(s) wearing a mask. Masked portraits will not be printed in the yearbook; instead, the photo displayed in the online directory in MYPACE will be used. 

Middle School families who wish to have a child’s photo retaken should email Kim Thomson to ensure he/she is on the retake schedule. Students must be in dress uniform to have their picture taken. No fee applies for make-up or retake photos. Gemshots Photographic can be reached at studio@gemshots.com or 404-502-0036.

Oct. 28: Coffee & Conversation - Digital Citizenship

If you are like many Lower and Middle School parents, your head has been spinning with questions about screen time, healthy digital boundaries and figuring out the fun-filled worlds of Zoom, Google Classroom and educational apps. 

This year has thrown its share of curve balls. For many, managing unexpected circumstances has required introducing personal devices to our children earlier than planned. If this topic speaks to you, join us on Wednesday, Oct. 28 at 8:30 a.m. for our next Parent Coffee & Conversation. 

Follow the Zoom link below and get ready to learn and converse with other parents and faculty members Kacy Brubaker, Lower School Director of Student Life; Lele Fallon, Middle School Counselor; Katie Sandlin, Lower School Technology and STEAM Teacher; and Kevin Neely, Resident "Computer Guy." We hope to see you then!
