Important Senior Information

posted Oct 3, 2018, 3:56 AM by Sean Hollingshead   [ updated Oct 3, 2018, 3:56 AM ]

Do you have questions about Senior stuff?  Read on!!!

1.       If you did not attend the Senior meeting September 13, come by room 139 for cap and gown info and convocation information.  The convocation information is on the school website in the senior section.  Convocation is October 5, 2018.  Convocation is the first “official” recognition of the Class of 2019.  Cap and gown and other graduation “stuff” is sold through Herff Jones.  If you miss the order date, you can go on line or call Herff Jones at (804) 598-0971.

2.      As it says in the convocation memo, you will need to dress NICELY.  Refer to that memo, see Mrs. Anzelone in room 139 or ask an administrator.

3.      All Seniors will be wearing the same graduation gown.  The gown is black with an orange yoke.  With the color change of the gown, we are asking all Seniors to wear dark (navy blue, black, or dark brown) shoes.  If the Senior will be wearing slacks, we are asking that the slacks are dark as well.  If a dress shirt is worn, please try to get a light color (white, cream) and wear a tie that looks nice with the orange yoke.  If the Senior will be wearing a dress or skirt, there is NO color requirement.

4.      As in past years, the date of graduation has not been published yet.  As families plan for graduation, please be aware that there will be a limited number (the number of tickets has not been determined) of tickets given to each Senior.
