Senior Newsletter

Oak Ridge War Eagles Class of 2020

Information just for Seniors and their Parents

Seniors and Parents,

This newsletter will be a place where all sorts of information about senior year will be shared. I will update it throughout the semester.

I am excited for what the last few months of senior year will bring for you and your families. This is an exciting time for all.

In this month's update there is information about graduation walks through the elementary schools and an updated senior final exam schedule.

As always, if you have questions or need anything please feel free to let me know what I or my staff can do to support you.

Graduation Information

Graduation will be held at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion on May 22, 2020. Graduation ceremonies begin at 7:30, but students are required to be at the Pavilion no later than 6:30 to prepare for line-up.

Every graduate will receive 4 reserved tickets for graduation. There is additional seating and lawn seating and families are welcome to bring more than 4 guests. However, with the size of this class we will not be able to distribute more than 4 reserved tickets per student.

Senior students will attend school on April 24, 2020 and attend a mandatory senior meeting during 2nd block. After the meeting we will take our senior panoramic picture and at that point senior students will have early release so that they can prepare for prom.

Non-seniors attending prom will not have early release on that day.
