Who to see for what:

Fees Owed: Mrs. Weichert

Graduation Questions/Issues/Pictures/And Everything Else Graduation Related: Ms. Goodwin 


Teachers will be given the following information:


Please turn in the name of any senior student making an F for the term to Mrs. Alms when you turn in your grade sheets. Do not put an I or an N for a grade unless you have discussed it with Mr. Bailey. Please make sure that the names of all senior students who owe fees have been turned in to Mrs. Weichert prior to MAY 6.  We will hold their cap/gown until they are cleared. 

Attention Seniors:


If there are any conflicts with any scheduled activity, you are to get permission from Mr. Bailey prior to the activity to be excused, otherwise your absence will be considered unexcused and the given consequences will follow. However, you are being given plenty of time to make arrangements to be able to participate in all of the activities from your exams to graduation night. PLAN AHEAD NOW!


You will NOT be allowed to pick up your cap and gown or participate in graduation activities if you owe money for fees, books, laptops, laptop chargers, athletic attire, fines, etc… Please make sure your record is clear as soon as possible. See Mrs. Weichert if you have any questions regarding monies owed.


You have been given a dress code for graduation activities. Anyone who is not dressed properly for graduation will not be allowed to participate in that activity. Please do NOT test this policy. It would be a shame for your family to attend and you not be able to participate. If you have any questions about your clothing, please see Ms. Goodwin.


Our graduation ceremony is a formal occasion. You have worked very hard for this night, and you will remember it for the rest of your lives. Show pride in your school, classmates, and yourself by behaving appropriately. 


At graduation, your tassel on the cap is placed to the right before the diploma is presented. Please remember to pause when accepting your diploma for your handshake picture.


Please ask all families to remain in the stands until after the graduation ceremony is over. Also, please ask them to keep their cheering at a minimum as it usually drowns out the name of the graduate behind you.


NOTE:  No restrictions on guests


In the case of inclement weather, we will have a ticket system. You will be given your tickets at graduation practice.  We are hoping for wonderful graduation weather!
