Is there any part of the high school experience that is more important than getting your picture taken in your cap and gown? I mean these are the pictures that your parents will proudly show to just about anyone that they can find -- “look, my child DID graduate!” Now, getting busy high school seniors to show up for their cap and gown photos is another story…

Over at Bethlehem School (http://bhs.hdsb.org/) they’ve come up with a novel way to get the word out about the time and date for cap and gown photos. They placed a news item on their web site and then they set it to display on the homepage also. They’ve configured this news item so that it will be automatically removed after the photo date has passed. Not bad -- the problem has been solved almost automatically!
