A school Picture Day is you and your child’s chance to capture and preserve memories for that school year. School Picture Days first take place in preschool and occur again every year (sometimes twice a year) through the 12th grade. There may also be extra group photos organized for sports teams, clubs, and more.
The pictures taken during school photo day are usually used in school IDs, yearbook photos, and can be purchased for personal use in a variety of formats and sizes. Additionally, school picture day photos can be used as photo gifts to friends, grandparents, and other relatives so that everyone can cherish your little ones’ milestones! For more information, see the School Picture Day informational video below.
School Picture Day usually occurs either once in the Fall, or twice a year during both the start of the Fall and Spring terms. Sports, clubs, or other school organizations may also schedule additional Picture Days. Graduating seniors sometimes also receive an additional opportunity to take commencement or graduation photos for grad annoucements.
When any of these school Picture Days occur, schools send out order forms and reminders to the students and their families. Notices may be printed or digitally sent, but if you lose the notice, you can find the time and date of your child’s school Picture Day through Lifetouch’s Find my picture day.
From after school soccer games, to report cards on the fridge, to recesses spent with school friends – there’s plenty of memories, big and small, that help make up each school year as your child grows up. Most of these moments are left uncaptured with no photos taken, saved only in your memories. But school photo days help to capture the special moments that represent that year. Whether it’s braces, a different haircut, a favorite shirt, or anything else– a school photo’s value is in the memories it captures. Missing a photo day means missing out on a tangible memento of childhood, joy, and special moments– so it’s important to plan ahead.
