Seniors who attended the Balfour meeting (9/9) were given a packet to take home to parents which includes all information needed to place their order for a cap & gown as well as other graduation items. Students graduating from Elberta High School MUST purchase cap and gown from Balfour.  

Balfour will return to EHS on Wednesday, Sept. 16 to take orders in the library. It is important that order forms be filled out completely before arriving at the library.  Payment in full is required at time of order.  Forms of payment accepted are debit/credit cards, checks made payable to Lee McDaniel, Inc., and cash.

Balfour offers many very nice items including announcements and thank you notes. There is a sample order form inside the catalog.  Please note the 4 discounted packages along the left-hand side of the form.

If ordering announcements, 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 legibly 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. 

All items are optional except the cap & gown packet called the Graduation Supply Cost on Line 25 for $107.10. 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.  


Once all items have been totaled, add $11.00 for package & handling charges (pre-printed on order form) subtotal and then add 11% sales tax 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.

Those who missed the meeting can see Mrs. Goodwin in room 201 to pick up an order packet.  Please contact Mrs. Goodwin with questions or concerns.





This page will help keep parents and seniors informed about events going on related to the senior class and graduation.

During the 2020-2021 school year we will communicate with you by posting to the school's website and Facebook, sending emails, and texting using the REMIND program.  

Seniors and their parents are asked to maintain current contact information with the school throughout the year and to visit frequently to stay informed of news.  Information regarding graduation can be easily accessed on the main page by clicking on the Elberta High School news tab labeled Graduation 2021

Post 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.

There will be additional documents attached.
