Pre-graduation planning

Seniors will receive an assignment in English class to make their slides for graduation.  Each senior will make a “baby picture slide”, which consists of 1-4 pictures of that senior as a baby or child, and a “senior slide”, which consists of 1-2 senior pictures, as well as his/her plans after graduation.  This assignment will be due in late March. 

Newspapers and programs are already in the works in April.  I will need a picture of your senior by March 31 for this reason.  Pictures that work the best are close-up, high resolution, digital pictures that are portrait pictures (up & down, not sideways).  These pictures can be emailed to If you do not have a professional picture of your student, please let me know.  I would be happy to take some for your student!

The class fund will pay for the caps, tassels, parent flowers, and stoles for graduation.  The class will vote on whether or not to pay for the gowns (this often depends on class funds).  If students opt to pay for their own gowns, cost per gown is $20.  Students will keep all parts of their graduation gear.

A class picture with caps & gowns will be taken approximately two weeks prior to graduation.  Pictures will be posted on the class Facebook page (Wolsey-Wessington Class of 2020) for your use.

Seniors will be honored at a banquet sometime in the two weeks prior to graduation.  All seniors and their parents/guardians are invited to a sit-down meal while we honor the seniors for all their accomplishments throughout high school.  A date will be posted on the school calendar once set.

Graduation Day

Date:  May 16, 2020, 3:00pm (Seniors report at 2:00pm/Class picture at 2:15pm)

Each senior will have one row reserved for 12 guests.

Totes for cards, gifts, etc., are provided as a gift from the teachers.  Students are responsible for a name sign for the tote.  It can be as basic or fancy as you wish!  (Size smaller than 11x13 works best)  Please put both first and last name on the sign.
