graduation news

Spring 2017

On or about May 1st, every senior will receive a letter in homeroom from Mr. Rickert entitled "Commencement - Fact Sheet"". Each household of a senior will also receive this letter by U.S. Mail. If you do not receive this letter, extra copies are available from Mr.Bianchi or Mrs. Harland in the Counseling Center.

Graduation will take place at Proctors Theatre on Thursday June 22, 2017 beginning at 7:00 p.m. No one will be admitted without a ticket!

You are reminded that REHEARSAL FOR GRADUATION is scheduled for Tuesday June 20, 2017. Students are required to attend this rehearsal. Exceptions will not be granted for work commitments. If a student cannot attend for another reason, please bring a written note, signed by a parent, to Mr. Bianchi by June 1st. Students will assemble at the high school auditorium at 8:15 a.m. for a brief meeting. They will then be bussed to Proctors for the rehearsal. No one will be permitted to drive their own car. They will return from Proctors at about 11:30 a.m. at which time they will receive their cap and gown, tickets, and any other materials pertaining to graduation. Students must have any outstanding obligations settled (e.g. media fines, detentions, lost textbook fines, cafeteria debts and athletic uniforms) before receiving their tickets and cap and gown. The Senior BBQ will take place immediately after the distribution of caps and gowns.

Every graduate receives four tickets for family use. The graduate does not need a ticket. If you need extra tickets, please contact Mrs. Harland in writing by June 1st with your request. We expect to be able to honor all reasonable requests on a first come, first served basis. If we are unable to do so, we will contact those people whose request we cannot honor. Otherwise, you will receive your tickets in the graduate's packet that he or she will receive immediately after rehearsal on the 20th. We ask that if you will not need your allotment of four tickets, that you return the extras to Mrs. Harland.

If you are in need of wheelchair seating, please notify Mrs. Harland in writing by June 1st. We are limited by restrictions placed upon us by Proctors. Please understand that we can only assist you with wheelchair bound individuals.

Parking is available in the lot directly behind Proctors and in the Parking Garage. Please do not park in the Hampton Inn Lot on Clinton St. You will have your car towed. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Bianchi at 382-2511 ext. 21759.
