Last call for picture re-takes
We are offering one final picture re-take day on February 3rd. All students attending Gig Harbor High School are required to have their photo taken, even if you are not purchasing a packet. Seniors we will be using these pictures for the Senior page ad in the local news so check to see if the photo you have is the one you want to go in the paper. Retakes will start at 7:00 am and go until 12:00 pm.
