Noteworthy Notes:

Make-Up Picture Day - April 18

Was your child absent when school pictures were taken?  Are you unhappy with the way your child's school picture came out?  Splendid Portraits will return for one day only, Monday, April 18 to retake photos and take photos any child who was absent the first time around.  We must know, though, who you are ahead of time.  Please call the school (301.365.2909) or email Carolyn at to let her know you'd like your child's photo taken.  You will need to schedule a sitting time if your child attend school only on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  If you are scheduling a retake, please return to school the photo package you did receive.
