Student Activities Notes for Seniors!
  1. Pay attention to Senior-specific announcements throughout the school year - they will help you successfully complete everything you need to graduation and enjoy Senior Activities to the fullest!
  2. Pranks: Second semester is often accompanied by senior pranks that cause damage and inconvenience to the school. Serious disciplinary (and even legal) action will be taken if pranks are committed before the end of the year. Furthermore, the senior class will have to pay for any damages, which may leave you without a Grad Night. Don’t risk it!
  3. Graduation: Make sure you have taken care of the following…
    • Cap & Gown: Order online or pick up an order form in November at school.  Jostens will be on campus in November at lunch to collect orders and answer questions.
      • If you miss the cut off date, Call Jostens @ 650-350-1132 or click on the link above in the Updates section if you still haven’t ordered. Once the late order deadline has passed, limited extras will be available on May 21st on delivery day.
      • NOTE - no one is expected to pay for their cap and gown as a condition to participate in graduation.  Caps and gowns can be borrowed from the school if a student does not wish to purchase, but many students do purchase theirs as a keepsake.  Contact Jostens at 925-283-9283
        or E-mail the Gunn HS rep at if you want more information on borrowing a cap and gown.
    • Senior Activities: Senior Picnic & Grad Night - Packets will be available on the PTSA Website.
    • Senior Obligations: Library/Textbook/Parking/Transcript/Athletics:  You will be mailed a letter listing all your outstanding obligations. Please clear them with the Main Office, Library or specific Department as soon as you can or you won’t receive a yearbook or diploma.  No exceptions!!!
    • Attire for Baccalaureate and Graduation:  Dressy casual (no jeans/ sneakers) with tassel, cap and graduation gown zipped up.  You do not need to bring your cap or tassel to Baccalaureate!
Baccalaureate/Graduation Performers:

Speeches:  Student tryouts will be in late April/ early May 4/30.  Show up ready to deliver a 3-5 minute speech to teachers, counselors, and two of your council members. We will choose 2-3 for Baccalaureate and 2-3 for Graduation.

Musical Performances:  If you wish to perform during Baccalaureate, come to tryouts  in April.  Pieces should be around 3 minutes long and be at a high level.
