Senior Awards Day is scheduled for the morning of Friday, May 20th.  Attending the Senior Awards Day ceremony is a requirement to be able to participate in the actual graduation ceremony. Mr. Cofer is the only person allowed to give you permission to miss this event. Appropriate dress, as well as cap and gown, are required on this day.
Appropriate dress for both awards day and graduation day is as follows:
Males: A white dress shirt and a dark tie (no bow ties) should be worn.  Also, black dress pants as well as dark socks and dark dress shoes are required. Coats may be left off for comfort. NO JEANS.
Females: A dress or skirt and blouse with no fabric showing at the neck of the gown should be worn. In effect, this will achieve a V neck appearance with the collar. The skirt length must be shorter than the graduation gown. Black dress heels or flats (no flip-flops, although sandals and wedges are allowed) are also required. A white collar comes with the cap and gown and is to be pinned or sewn to the gown before arriving to the exercises. Please avoid large jewelry pieces.
Caps: Tassels on caps are to be worn on the right side. You are to wear the normal green/gold tassel and not the “bling” tassel that was purchased by some.
Each graduate will be given 10 tickets to graduation. No extra tickets will be available through the school or through the Convocation Center. Tickets will be distributed on the day of graduation practice, Thursday, June 2nd at 1:00pm in the new gym. You DO NOT have to wear your cap and gown to practice.
Please contact/see Mrs. Kimberly Baynham with any questions concerning upcoming Senior events.
