Participation in graduation exercises is a privilege that is given to those who have successfully completed the requirements set forth by this school. Seniors, please do not do anything to jeopardize your chances of participating in these exercises. Continue to be in attendance daily, complete your assignments, study for exams, make up missed work, and exhibit behavior that is in keeping with school policy. Also, keep in mind that ALL OBLIGATIONS MUST BE TAKEN CARE OF BY 3:12 PM, ON WEDNESDAY, MAY 24. This means that all academic requirements (assignments, exams, projects, etc.) must have been completed, books belonging to the school must have been returned, and all bills (book, cafeteria, library, fees, fundraiser money, etc.) must have been paid prior to the start of practice. If you fail to take care of these responsibilities before practice, you will not be permitted to participate in the graduation ceremony.
There is a dress code for graduation. Gentlemen must wear dress pants, dress shoes, a white shirt (long or short sleeved) and a tieunder gowns. Ladies must wear a dress or skirt and blouse and black shoes. Finally, remember that all handbook dress code issues apply before and during the graduation ceremony.
Graduation practice will be held on Wednesday morning, May 24th. All seniors who intend to participate in graduation on Friday night, must be at practice in complete graduation attire and be on time. Before practice on Thursday morning, all seniors are invited to the Senior Breakfast, which is held annually at Lakeview Restaurant. This breakfast is free to all graduates. Serving will begin at 6:15 a.m.
All pictures will be taken at graduation practice. Pictures of individuals receiving a diploma from Mr. Mehaffey must be taken between 7:15 and 8:00 a.m. If you want individual pictures, you should go to the gym as soon as you have finished with breakfast and have these pictures taken. All individual pictures must be completed by 8:00 a.m. so we can begin practice promptly. In addition, a class picture for the yearbook will be taken immediately after practice. Information on purchasing pictures is enclosed with this letter. Please note that all pictures must be paid for at practice.
