Cap and gown picture/order forms will be distributed during homeroom on January 22nd. Please fill out both forms (Lifetouch and Jostens) to the best of your ability. No student will receive graduation regalia until they fill out and turn in their Jostens form. All orders/money should be turned in on Cap and Gown Picture/Order Day, February 13th, 2020.
SENIOR DUES: February 11th, 2020
CLASS DUES ARE $45 and MUST BE PAID to Ms. Stuart or Ms. Torres in the Media Center. Payments will be collected every Tuesday and Thursday, from February 10th to April 9th (8:00am-9:00am OR 3:45pm-4:15pm). Senior dues will NOT be taken in the main office. Class dues help to defray the cost of the senior picnic, Class Day, graduation, cap and gown purchases, diploma covers, tassels, and the printing of the diplomas. Failure to pay class dues will result in a student’s inability to attend both the prom and the senior picnic. Any senior not in attendance at the picnic will be expected to report to afternoon classes.
CAP AND GOWN PICTURE/ORDER DAY: February 13th, 2020
Cap and gown day will be from 8:30am-3:15pm in the library on February 13th, 2020. During this time, seniors will be order caps and gowns (with Jostens), take cap and gown pictures (with Lifetouch), verify their names that will be seen on their diplomas (with Guidance), and turn in announcement order forms (with Jostens). If you want to order pictures, announcements, or other senior related gear, (with Jostens) extra order forms will be available in the main office beginning in February. Complete all forms PRIOR to this date. There will be a very limited supply of extra order forms in the library. Every senior must attend this event so that they can order their Cap and Gown. Students will be called to the library by their homeroom teacher’s name. Career Center students may go to the library during lunch or their travel period.
