ATTENTION SENIORS!!!! Senior Activities Listing

Seniors and parents,

Seniors have two weeks to complete your student activities form. This is the information that is printed underneath your formal portrait in the yearbook. It is a listing of all the BISHOP LYNCH activities you have participated in during your years at BL. The electronic form will be available on your FriarNet account. The form will be live the day we return from break. Senior -- It is YOUR responsibility to fill out this form before the deadline of January 27. We will make the announcements on BLLive, Friar Facts and in your senior English classes. After January 27, it will be too late as these pages are due to the printer at that time. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Veritas Yearbook Adviser at Michele.longoria@bishoplynch.org.
