On September 8, 2022, students experienced picture day. These pictures will be used to represent them in the yearbook and in their student IDs. 

Students walked to the Auxiliary Gym at a specific time based on grade level and last name. 

School pictures have always provided a way to look back on all stages of life. From the cute kindergarten and early elementary school stages to the awkward middle school ones, school pictures show growth through the years.

Some students look forward to picture day up to days before the actual day. Some students forget about Picture Day until the day of.

Picture Day photos might have sentimental value or may be displayed in a student’s house. Having a picture on display in the house turns up the pressure. Students will take time to decide what to wear for the occasion.

“I get really nervous because that’s the picture that my dad is going to put in the living room,” said Mariangel Rodriguez Cardenas, a sophomore at Leesville Road High School. 

However, even with the added pressure of the picture being put up, some students remain unbothered. “I really don’t care how the picture turns out at all,” said Mathew Gregory, a sophomore at Leesville Road High School. 

Regardless of whether or not students said they cared what they looked like in their picture, all interviewed students agreed that if they could change some aspect of how pictures were selected, they would.

“I would like to see the picture and retake it if I don’t like it,” said Kaelyn McCann, a junior at Leesville Road High School.

While some students take the picture and forget about it and some have to see it every day at home, the pictures that are taken during picture day represent all Leesville Road High School students.
