No tennis shoes, please. Please be aware that all students will walk up/down several flights of stairs so be mindful of that when picking out your shoes for the event. Very high heels make walking and stairs very difficult and we don’t want anyone to fall on stage.

SENIOR GRADE FREEZE

  1. Once teachers have verified Cycle #3 grades, all senior GPA’s and class rankings are finalized and frozen for graduation purposes.
  2. This does not mean that Cycle #4 grades aren’t important. They are.
  3. Cycle #4 grades can keep you from graduating on May 21st with your classmates.
  4. We will notify the Top 10 graduates of their ranking sometime next week.
  5. Don’t waste a lot of hard work by failing to do just a little bit more hard work.

REMINDERS

  1. Be sure you submit your two photos to Ms. Lyon for your senior slideshow. One is a youth picture and the second is a senior photo.

  2. Don’t forget to take your graduation gown out of the package and let it hang. Otherwise, it will have tons of wrinkles. DO NOT IRON YOUR GOWN.

  3. If you did not order a cap and gown, please see Mr. King or Mrs. Fowler ASAP.

  4. If you have ordered your cap and gown but did not pick it up when Josten’s was on campus, please stop by the front office and Ms. Johnson or Ms. Tisdale should be able to get your gown.
