This page has been created to help seniors and their parents stay informed throughout the school year about matters pertaining to graduation.
During the 2016-2017 school year, I will communicate with you by posting to the school's website and Facebook, sending emails, and via school cast phone calls.
Seniors and their parents are asked to maintain current contact information with the school throughout the year and to visit www.daphnehs.com frequently to stay abreast of the news.
This page can be easily accessed from the main page by clicking on the "Class of 2017 Graduation Information" button or selecting the “Academics” tab and then “Graduation 2017” (10th one down on the menu).
Posts will naturally increase as graduation nears. I will maintain a running list of important dates and deadlines for quick reference, which will often be accompanied by a brief entry farther down on the page.
Feel free to email me, Ellen Marler, Graduation Coordinator, at any time with questions or concerns. (email@example.com)
Please enter ALL scholarship offers and indicate which scholarship you are “accepting” for which you will be recognized at the Senior Awards Ceremony which will be held Friday, April 28 at at 8 am in the gym. We will compile all scholarships into the final calculation for your class. (Example-UAB- Accepted 34,000; YMCA- Accepted- $500; Baldwin EMC- Accepted $500; USA- Offered 12,000; Troy- Offered 15,000; UA- Offered 18,000, etc.
(Additional scholarships awarded to you can be added by using the same link to submit them to Ms. Minto.)
There are many scholarship deadlines approaching! Apply! Apply! Apply! Every little bit helps! Official transcripts can be obtained for these applications from the registrar, Mrs. Marquis.
Balfour offers many very nice items including high-quality invitations/announcements. (The official school logo cannot be used on invitations purchased from other sources.)
If ordering invitations please note:
• Young ladies should use “Miss” in front of their full formal name and should not use initials.
• Young men should not place a title in front of their name but should use a suffix, if applicable, such as Jr. or III. Young men may also use an initial rather than their middle name if they prefer.
• Please print as legibly as possible and remember to use upper and lowercase letters because the senior’s name will be printed on the invitations exactly as it appears on the top line of the order form.
Only FULL payments of money orders, check, debit and credit will be accepted and should be made out to BALFOUR. PLEASE DO NOT MAIL CASH.
All items are optional except the cap & gown packet called the Graduation Supply Cost on Line 45 for $60.30. Included are a cap & gown, a tassel, a collar (girls only), a diploma and a diploma cover. Students who participate in the graduation ceremony are REQUIRED to purchase their gowns from Balfour. Caps & Gowns from previous years or purchased from a different source are not allowed.
Once all items have been totaled, add $14.00 for package & handling charges (pre-printed on order form) subtotal and then add 9.5% (x .095) to arrive at the final total. Students must provide their gender, height, and weight as this information is used to determine the size and fit of each gown.
Daphne High School has chosen the Balfour Company to provide seniors with all items necessary for graduation as well as other products and memorabilia. Balfour contact information will remain posted on this page for your convenience.
Seniors who participate in the graduation ceremony MUST purchase their senior supplies from Balfour. These supplies include a cap & gown, tassel, diploma and diploma cover. (CAPS & GOWNS FROM PREVIOUS YEARS CANNOT BE USED.)
Please remember, if you choose to order announcements/invitations from someone other than Balfour or decide to produce your own, you may not use the school's logo. This is a copyrighted property and Balfour is the only authorized user of this image for purposes of graduation invitations.
