Graduation Update - May (open me!)

Graduation is Now Only 50 Days Away!

Excitement is building quickly as the big day approaches!  There are many important items in April’s Graduation Update.  All graduates have a form to fill out by April 27th to confirm their graduation plans.  Take time to look this through as a family and please let me know if you have any questions.  I am eager to see your responses!

We have also arranged a Senior Meet Up on May 1st from 1:30 – 3:30 pm at the school.  This will be a great chance for our graduates to get to know each other better making the ceremony even more special.  Anyone who wants to decorate caps or create a senior poster can design them together during this time also.  We are very excited for this get-together!

You’ll also see in the Update that if you haven’t purchased and/or decided to borrow a cap and gown, purchased your tassel and sent me your slideshow items, you need to contact me asap so we can get you caught up on your preparations.
