All balances must be paid to Jostens before the cap and gowns will be released to students. Invoices for outstanding balances have been emailed to the address you have on file with Jostens.


We continue to plan for the graduation ceremony, scheduled for June 2 at 6pm in the high school auditorium. Admission to the ceremony is by ticket only, no matter the age of the audience member. Students will receive tickets and other graduation information at a senior meeting we will be holding after Spring Break. Tickets will be distributed following the graduation rehearsal and senior lunch on June 1. The ceremony will also be live-streamed. Once we have the web address for that, we will share it with families and on social media.


Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions (france.bernadette@ccpsstaff.org). June will be here before you know it! Enjoy these last few months!!
