What to expect the next six weeks . . .

This newsletter contains information that you will need to make your graduation a success. READ each section. Any questions ask Dr. H. Morris, Mrs. K. Morris, Ms. Mulkey, or Mr. Senn. If they don't know the answer, they know who to ask!

Guest Names--Due Friday, May 4, 2018

Cap and Gown

You will receive your cap and gown in a couple of weeks. Check to make sure your gown is the correct size, you have a tassel and you have a hood.
When you get home take your gown out of the bag and hang it on a hanger. Doing this will allow the wrinkles to drop out. DO NOT IRON your gown.

Honor Graduates Reminder

What if it Rains????

Seniors will be given six rain tickets in addition to the two guest tickets. If the graduation ceremony is moved to the gym, the principal, Dr. Hall will make that decision by 6:00 p.m. The announcement will be made by mass phone call, put on the school's webpage, and put on the school's Facebook page.
To enter the gym, a person MUST have either a guest ticket or a rain ticket--this includes babies, toddlers, and children.

2. Be at the high school gym at 6:50 p.m. for the class picture.
3. Make sure you meet dress code.
4. SMILE! It's time to walk across the stage.
