CLASS OF 2023 Signing Day Celebration

Seniors and Families:

We would like to invite you to join us as we celebrate the Class of 2023 at our first annual Signing Day Celebration. Signing Day is an opportunity to celebrate students committing to pursue their education past high school. Whether a student wants to earn a two-year degree, a four-year degree, a certificate or industry-recognized credential, transfer to a new institution, complete an apprenticeship, or enlist in the military, we want to celebrate them! We will hold a ceremony at 6:00 PM on May 15th at Stanwood High School where students will be recognized for their post-high school path and sign a commitment to this path. To sign up to participate, students should complete this form by May 1st. Please only submit one form per student.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out.
