Video Photo Montage 2020
Dear 8th grade families, 
We are putting together a video photo montage to be shown at the 8th grade graduation party. Please help us out by sending in pictures of your child through their years in the Beverly Hills Unified School District. We are collecting pictures from Kindergarten through 7th grade from El Rodeo, BV, Hawthorne, and Horace Mann as well as pictures from this year at Beverly Vista Middle School. If your child attended another school, please only send in pictures from the time he or she has been in the BHUSD. Please also check with your children to see if they have any pictures on their devices.
We will be collecting pictures for several months, so if you do not have any yet, please make sure to take as many pictures as possible throughout this school year.
Guidelines for pictures
  • Only send in pictures from K-8th grade from any BHUSD school.
  • Only send in pictures from school related events like field trips, fun runs, Halloween at school, class parties, school carnivals and fairs, holiday shows, performances, and other school events. Please do not send in pictures from birthday parties, bat/bar mitzvahs, vacations, pictures taken at home or any picture not taken at school or a school trip.
  • Please try to send pictures of groups of 2 or more. This is so we can try to include as many kids as possible. Ideally, we would like every child represented. 
  • Please send all pictures to bvms2020montage@gmail.com and please label them by indicating what grade they are from and by identifying the kids in the pictures if you can.
  • Please submit all photos by April 1, 2020.
