Pictures will be taken on 3/12/18 at Westbrook Middle School. Please look for the picture information that I will be sending home with the swimmers on Friday. The picture information and check/money need to be returned on picture day if you would like to purchase pictures. Swimmers will be wearing their swim t-shirts for their pictures, so please help them pack those or wear them on Monday. After pictures are taken, I will have the swimmers in my room until they are picked up by their parent or they take the late bus home. Do not pick up your swimmers at the Community Center on 3/12/18. They need to be picked up at the Middle School on that day.
