Graduation Countdown 2018

Special Note from Dr. Oberkehr: This year Debt Day (May 14, 2018) for seniors is prior to the completion of AP Exams.  Students must satisfy all graduation requirements (textbook return, debts, academic requirements, etc.) by Friday May 18, 2018 at 1:00pm in order to receive their diploma at graduation.  If these requirements are not met, they will need to report to the school the following week and resolve all matters to receive their diploma.  Thank you for your cooperation and understanding in this matter.

If you missed Debt Day, please go to the textbook room to clear your debt and receive your Yellow Debt Card. 


If you ordered a Senior Graduation Yard Sign, they may be picked up after exams in front office or during Debt Day in gym.

Graduation Seating:

Seniors will each receive two graduation tickets. Seniors who pay the class dues of $30 can receive up to ten tickets. Once every senior receives his or her tickets, we may accommodate families who need more than the ten until capacity is full.

Tickets were passed out on Debt Day, May 14.
