The FRCS PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) is excited to announce the creation and launch of the FRCS Family Photo Directory! The desire is to strengthen the community and build cohesion and unity amongst FRCS. The secondary goal is to help raise money for the PTO.
We expect delivery of the directory by the end of this school year.
Who Can Participate?
Every family of STUDENTS and STAFF member is invited to take part in our first ever Family Photo Directory! It provides a great way for us all to get to know each other better, solve the mystery of which kids go with which parents, and for families who share their contact info, making it easier to plan fun social times.
How to Participate
Participation in the Family Photo Directory is voluntary and really simple!
Just sign-up for a FREE family photo shoot, indoor or outdoor, with Photographer Elizabeth Osberg. New time slots have been added on August 25, and there are still slots available on July 14.
Once you’ve picked your date and time, follow the prompts to share the family information you want in the Photo Directory below your family picture. (Options: Names, favorite family Bible verse, contact information, favorite family activities, etc.)
The cost of the directory will depend upon the number of copies we order, and we expect the price range to be $15-$20.
You don’t need to order a directory to have your family picture and information in it, but we think you’ll agree that it’d be so much more fun to have a copy — don’t miss out on this chance to buy one!
Can I buy copies of our photos for my family to use?
Absolutely! Families are also welcome to purchase prints and digital images of their family photo session from a private online gallery that will be provided. These photo packs can be ordered separately from a directory. And a portion of the proceeds will go back to our PTO!
What if my family has a photo we would prefer to use?
You are welcome to submit a photo of your own, if it meets the following conditions:
- It was taken by a professional photographer (cell phone quality doesn’t work well for print)
- It was taken in the last 12 months
- You have permission from the photographer to have the photo reproduced in this photo directory — keep in mind that most photographers have limits on how photos they take of you can be used, and you must ensure that it is ok for the photo to be used in this way. If you are unsure if your photograph can be used please either contact the photographer and obtain written approval or sign up for a free photo slot and have new photos taken. All the photos taken during these free sessions will have permission to be reproduced in the directory.
If your photo meets all of these requirements, please submit the photo (high resolution only, please) and confirmation of approval to use the photo in the directory to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I buy advertising in the directory?
Yes. FRCS families who own businesses are welcome to place an ad or promotion in this directory. To learn more, email us at email@example.com.
