You need to let me (Mrs. Schuler) know by May 5 who you want to walk with down the aisle at graduation. I have a sign-up sheet posted in my room. On May 8 we will draw numbers to see the order in which you will walk. Only one person from each pair will draw a #. This is also the order in which your parents will be seated. There are 5 seats on the floor which will be reserved for your family. Any more than 5 must sit in the bleachers.
This is a formal ceremony, please dress appropriately! Girls, you may wear any color dress or pantsuit underneath your gown. Guys, please wear dress pants or kakis if possible. Since your robe is dark green it doesn’t really matter the color of your clothes. It does look very nice if guys wear a dress shirt and tie.
May 26 GRADUATION - Please arrive BEFORE 6:00 p.m. We will be taking a group picture at 6:00 p.m. sharp!
You may pick up your diploma in Mrs. Schuler’s room after the graduation ceremony. If you do not pick up your diploma after the ceremony you may pick it up between June 5 - 9 from 6:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. You, personally have to pick them up, you cannot send someone in your place.
