Graduation

 

IMPORTANT SENIOR INFORMATION!

 

GRADUATION PRACTICE:  Monday, 5-15-17, 9:00-11:00 a.m.

EVERYONE must attend graduation practice in order to participate in the Graduation Ceremony.  Dismiss from class at 8:45 a.m. and report to the auditorium promptly at 9:00 a.m. in graduation attire** with caps and gowns!  In addition to practicing for graduation, we will be running through class night, taking the Top Ten and individual cap & gown pictures for those who want them, and the formal class picture in caps and gowns.

 

CLASS PICTURES:

Ed Clark, the new school photographer, has prepared order forms so that you can order individual cap and gown pictures, pictures of you receiving your diploma on graduation night, and the formal cap and gown or casual group pictures. PLEASE REVIEW THESE ORDER FORMS AND HAVE THEM READY TO TURN IN WITH YOUR PAYMENT ON MONDAY, MAY 15, 2017!   Picture packets will be available for pick up in the High School Office on Tuesday, June 6th.

 

CLASS PICNIC: 12:00 p.m.

The Senior Class Picnic will follow graduation practice.  The class will furnish all food and beverages for the picnic.  Listen to the announcements for location.  The casual class picture will be taken after lunch. Please feel free to bring games, music, etc. as you have the afternoon to enjoy each other’s company!

THIS IS A FORMAL OCCASION! YOU NEED TO DRESS UP!!!

                                                                                       

GRADUATION NIGHT:

 

The school doors will open at 6:30 p.m.

There will be limited floor seating for elderly or disabled persons. 

Each person requiring floor seating is allowed two attendants to sit with them during the ceremony.  I know this might break up families, but if we don’t limit the number of people on the floor, we won’t be able to accommodate those who really need to be on the floor!

 

If you have friends/relatives who need special floor accommodations, please email me and I will reserve them a seat under your name.  There will be ushers at each set of gym doors to assist them in finding their seats.  This way, they don’t need to get to school so early!

 

SOMETHING NEW THIS YEAR!!!

Ed Clark will be photographing each graduate as they accept their diploma from the School Board President on graduation night so parents will not need to miss part of the ceremony trying to get that particular picture!  Please refer to the attached picture order forms for package and pricing information.
