Yearbook Photos

Parents! Students! Teachers! You take great pictures, right? And you love seeing them in the yearbook, right? This year we have a new, improved, super-easy way for you to send those sweet shots straight to us.

Download the Replay It app on your phone or tablet. Connect your account to the Briarwood yearbook – it’s easy to find. Our password is bulldogs14. Once the app is connected you can easily send any picture or set of pictures to the yearbook.

The best pictures for the yearbook are the one of students and teachers at school or at school events – let’s celebrate our Bulldog pride!

And, of course, you can also still email pictures to briarwoodpictures@gmail.com if that works better for you. Thanks for helping us make a great yearbook! Questions? Call or text Liz at 913-235-2578.

ACTION ALERT

Earlier this year the Kansas Supreme Court ruled that our public schools are being underfunded by as much as a half billion dollars per year. The Kansas Legislature has until June 30th to put a new plan in place.

Call on the Kansas Speaker of the House and the Chair of the Education committee to pass tax reform that ensures money is available for school funding and pass legislation that fully funds public education.

Speaker of the House, Ron Ryckman – ron.ryckman@house.ks.gov or 785-296-2302

Chair, Rep Larry Campbell – larry.campbell@house.ks.gov or 785-296-7654

Let them know why you believe investing in public education is a sound investment for the State.

PTA Slate for 2017-2018
