Picture Day Monday September 19

Picture Day is Monday September 19. All students will be photographed, school ID’s will be issued, and the portraits will be included in the school yearbook. Students are required to wear their school uniform for picture day.

If you wish to order a portrait package, your child will need to bring the envelope we distributed on Monday afternoon. Please ensure proof of payment, or a cash/check made payable to Dorian Studio is enclosed in the envelope.

The school reference code is 27911.
Please note we have received reports of a different code pre-printed on some envelopes. North Phoenix Prep is 27911, don't worry if you did not enter this. We have notified Dorian Studio of the misprint. 

To pay by credit card: Please go to and purchase a GIFT CARD for the amount of your order. Print and enclose the receipt in the order envelope sent home on Monday. Please note a minimum credit card charge of $15. Please enter the reference code 27911 & the photo date of 9/19/16.

We have a very limited supply of extra envelopes in the school office if your child misplaced their copy.
