AHS YEARBOOK SENIOR PHOTO INFORMATION

Ripcho Studios is the "official" photographer for the AHS yearbook. Parents of upcoming Seniors are under no obligation to purchase a Senior picture package from Ripcho Studios; however, the only way for the student to appear in the yearbook is to have their picture taken by Ripcho Studios.

Ripcho Studios will offer a "yearbook only" photograph option. If a student wants a yearbook only picture, it will be free of charge.  Ripcho Studio will photograph approximately three head and shoulder images of the student for the yearbook.  Ripcho Studios will then allow you to select the image you prefer for the yearbook.

For a YEARBOOK ONLY picture sitting, parents should call Ripcho Studios at 216-631-0664 and ask for "THE FREE YEARBOOK ONLY SITTING." A family will NOT be charged for this option.

Ripcho will bring their studio to AHS between the dates of July11-15, 2016.  Makeup days are scheduled for August 8th & 9th for those students unable to attend the first sessions.
