School picture day: opinions?
August 30, 2017 7:43pm CST
What do you think of school picture day? Ours (two days actually) are Monday and Tuesday next week. I have been having my picture taken at school every year since first grade through 37th year of teaching (except for college and grad school.) I have always hated picture day, and about half the time I forget and don't dress nicely for it. Sometimes I wonder why the schools think it's a good idea to take pictures because a lot of students don't like them. It is helpful for memories, such as yearbooks, and identifying students for teachers who haven't learned all the names quite yet. Our school also does an ID card for each student because they can use them when they buy train passes, for our library and lunch room and so forth. Did you love or hate picture days? What about the school pictures of your kids? What do you think of having a school picture day?

Well I always hated picture day but I had never liked the way I look when I was a child lol One time my younger middle sister shaved her eyebrow the night before (she was about 7 yrs old) omg and the photo was so funny of her. I would love to see every one of your pictures for 37 yrs Denise..I bet you look so beautiful in them.

Here the students have to wear school uniforms for picture day. Actually in high school they have to wear school uniforms all the time. Sometimes if the teachers are nice, they will take photos for them for any special moments and share with the parents and therefore we know what's going on in school.
