DATES AND DEADLINES:
CAP AND GOWNS ARE IN: Cap and gowns have been delivered to seniors. Please be sure to follow all care instructions (posted below). Cap, gown, and tassels are to be worn to the Baccalaureate service, Graduation rehearsal, and of course, the commencement ceremony on Graduation Day.
GRADUATION TICKETS: Once again, we find ourselves with a very large graduating class! This distinction has created a situation where we must limit guests for each graduate in order to adhere to the safety standards designated by the Fire Marshal. The graduation ceremony will be a ticket-only event. ALL guests of ANY age will be required to have a ticket to attend graduation in the gymnasium. Any guest arriving without a ticket will be seated in the cafeteria where we will have a live broadcast of the ceremony. We realize this is not ideal for some families, however, it is a necessary step. Our goal is to ensure that the families of our graduates are able to see their child graduate while maintaining a safe and orderly event.
Please review the following:
GRADUATION SPECIAL NEEDS SEATING REQUESTS:
Seating for guests with special needs (i.e. wheelchairs, walkers, oxygen tanks, hearing impaired) may be requested by filling out our Special Needs Seating Requests form available in the front office beginning April 17 and are available below. Due to the limited availability of seats for our special needs guests, only one family member may accompany the special needs guests. The remainder of the family will need to plan for seats in the unreserved areas. All forms must be turned in to the front office by Friday, May 11th. Please note that we do not accept phone or email requests for special seating - all requests must be turned into the front office and be on our official form.
GRADUATION PHOTO PACKAGES: We are happy to continue the tradition started by the late Ronnie Logue II of offering a great opportunity for you to preserve the memories of your graduate during this special time AND support Project Graduation! Each package will include a full-color portrait of your graduate receiving a diploma from our superintendent (taken at practice), a full-color studio-type portrait of your graduate (taken at practice), a full-color portrait of the Class of 2018 (taken at practice), and a photo of the Class of 2018 in the "18" formation. 30% of all sales will go directly to Project Graduation! Portraits will be taken by professional photographer, Kirk Schlea. Order forms are now available in the front office and below.
GRADUATION DVD ORDER: Our graduation service will be recorded in high definition and preserved on a DVD by a professional videographer. The cost is $15, and 30% of every order will be donated directly to Project Graduation! Preserve this special moment AND support Project Graduation! Order forms were given to seniors and are available in the front office and below.

A mandatory, full-dress rehearsal will be held on Thursday, May 31st, at 8:00 am until 12 noon. ALL graduates planning to participate in the commencement ceremony MUST attend the FULL practice. If a graduate does not attend, he/she will be removed from the lineup. Honor regalia for honor students (final gpa of 3.5 or above) will be given out from 7:30 am until 8 am. Honor students, please arrive early! It is very important that graduates wear full graduation attire, as individual and group portraits will be taken at practice.
