Senior Graduation Announcement from Jostens

September 18, 2023

Dear Seniors and Parents,

Your senior year will be one filled with many important celebrations, some of which you will want to share with friends and family, the most important of these is your graduation. Last spring the Graduation Announcement Committee were dedicated in designing a unique graduation announcement especially for our school and the class of 2024. The 2024 Winnetonka High School graduation announcement is truly a culmination of talent, commitment and determination that represents our school, our graduation ceremony, and the entire senior class.

In an effort to provide quality service to our senior class, a sample of the 2024 graduation announcement will be passed out in the Senior meeting on Wednesday, September 20th, please be looking for it. Orders may be turned in on Wednesday, September 27th during lunch. Not only does this prototype provide an example of the outstanding announcement design, it will contain pertinent information regarding the ordering process to acquire your graduation announcements and your cap and gown.

Please take time to thank your Graduation Announcement Committee for their dedication in making the delivery of the announcements to the Class of 2024 a special experience. Your faculty and staff at Winnetonka High School are incredibly proud of each of you and we are excited to join in the numerous celebrations to come. Let’s make this a great senior year!

***Picking your student up early policy***

Starting for the 2023-2024 school year, our early pick up procedures will change. Parents/Guardians must pre-arrange any change to their scholar's daily dismissal prior to 2:00pm. If you have not called your scholar's attendance line or the main office prior to 2:00pm, your student will not be dismissed until the final bell at 2:40pm. At the end of the day, we have numerous things going on and it is unfeasible to accommodate requests after 2:00pm.
