Senior Pictures

The first round of senior pictures will be on Monday, June 27 – Thursday, June 30.  They will be daily from 9am – 4pm in the Commons.   

Make – up pictures for seniors will be July 27-29 at Spring Valley. Seniors who do not take pictures during the first round will receive information from Prestige Portraits about rescheduling their appointment.

General information about senior pictures:

  • Each senior should have at least one head-to-two outfit to be photographed in, and if wanted a second look to change into.
  • All seniors will take a formal picture in either a tuxedo or velvet drape (all of these pieces are provided for students). 
  • Students may bring school-appropriate props for casual pictures (sports equipment, instrument, etc). This is completely optional.
  • Each senior will have TWO pictures printed in the yearbook – one formal on the blue background, and one of the casual pictures.  
  • Absolutely no pictures will be accepted from any other photography studio for the yearbook.  If a student chooses not to take casual pictures during their senior session, then two formal pictures will be used in the book.
  • New students to SV who are rising seniors need to contact www.prestigeportraits.com to be added to the distribution list or may come to SV during senior picture times to arrange an appointment.

YEARBOOKS 21-22

Yearbooks that have not been picked up yet are available at the SV Front Office daily Monday-Thursday from 8am-4pm. There are also a few copies available to be purchased through the Front Office.

I will be checking email occasionally to answer any questions that are not addressed with the information above

Thanks, Mrs. Brindel

SENIORS TO GRADUATE WITH MILLIONS IN COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP OFFERS

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Students fulfilling their dreams of going to college are getting some significant help with the price tag. The financial impact of a high quality college education has motivated students in the graduating Class of 2022 to earn more than $157,957,278 in college scholarships. Individual totals for all five high schools are as follows:  

Blythewood High School: $37,427,975 earned by 432 graduates

Richland Northeast High School: $21,443,739 earned by 276 graduates

This graduating class includes 12 students who earned a high school diploma and college degree at the same time. The students enrolled in the Richland Two AVID Early College housed at Ridge View High School four years ago. They received Associate’s degrees in the Arts from district partner the University of South Carolina-Sumter and saved at least $25,376 per student, $304,512 collectively. The Richland Two AVID Early College program is available each year only to rising 8th grade students across the district. There is an application and acceptance process. More information is on the district’s website: http://www.richland2.org.

Richland Two Superintendent Dr. Baron R. Davis says the cost of going to college is always top of mind for parents of students who are seeking higher education. “Our graduating seniors have worked hard to lighten the load for themselves and their families. I am proud of the tools and opportunities Richland Two offers students to aid them in pursuing their dreams without having to finance their future,” said Dr. Davis.     

This week Richland Two will hold commencement ceremonies at Colonial Life Arena beginning with Westwood High at 8 a.m., Blythewood High at noon and Richland Northeast High at 4 p.m., on Wednesday, June 1. On Thursday, June 2, graduations will begin at 8 a.m. with Spring Valley High and Ridge View High at noon. Tickets are not required.
