Although an annual occurrence, Picture Day can cause a rush of mixed emotions for students, as it is often nerve-racking knowing that everyone will eventually see your picture. According to the overall opinion of Picture Day, most of the anxiety was generated from not knowing what the photo would look like, but students were also pleased to see how it ended up.
All grades were called during their Religion classes to have their school pictures photographed on August 23. The majority of students stated that they felt relieved after taking their photo. In spite of their relief, a great number of students complained about how long it has taken for them to receive their school IDs. However, most students claimed that their picture day experience was pretty decent overall.
When asked to give additional feedback about their experience, some students felt very strongly. Students felt that their picture ID should have come faster, similar to last year, and that their picture was somehow rushed. Azure Smith, a junior, stated “It was fast, I felt like it was too rushed and that most of the photos this year will not turn out good. Please bring Muñoz back!” Although several students stated that they feel negatively towards their picture day, sophomore Zachary Rosenberg said, “I thought the picture went smoothly. It was a fast and easy process and I am very excited to see how my picture came out.” Although a handful of students dreaded this day and felt anxious for their picture’s outcome, most students had a positive picture day.
