Middle School and High School Graduations are Coming!

posted May 23, 2017, 11:51 AM by Patrick McCabe

Dear Parents of 8th and 12th Graders:

The graduation ceremonies are closely approaching. I know this is an exciting time for both parents and students. I want to ensure that you are aware of the dates, times and ticket availability, so here is the information:

  • Middle School Graduation ceremony is on Tuesday, 6/20/17, at 7:00 pm in the school auditorium.
  • The High School Graduation ceremony is on Wednesday, 6/21/17, in the auditorium There are two important start times:
    • 6:16 pm senior slideshow
    • 7:00 pm graduation ceremony
  • Tickets: all students are promised four tickets. All 8th graders will get four and 12th as well to their respective ceremonies.
  • Once all tickets are accounted for (staff, Board and guest presenters are included) any that are left over are distributed to the students.
  • Since all tickets will be distributed evenly, we cannot take requests for extra tickets.
  • Tickets will be distributed along with caps and gowns during graduation practice the week of the ceremonies.
I look forward to seeing you in June and celebrating the accomplishments of our students.

Thank you,
Dr. McCabe
