Senior Group Picture: May 10 at 8:15am

All gowns should be placed on a hanger to allow wrinkles to drop out overnight. If an iron is used, it should be barely warm to the touch. It is very easy to burn a hole in the gown. It is best not to iron the gown.

ALL CAPS must be placed on the head parallel to the floor for the group picture. Caps must sit flat on the head. Caps are not to be decorated. If you do not want the front point of the hat to come down in the middle of your forehead, that point can be tucked under in the front.

Girls should wear a dress or shorts that do not stick out below the gown. DRESS SHOES should be worn because legs and feet do show in the group picture. Males should wear a white dress shirt, a tie, dress shoes, and dress slacks. The neckline and legs do show in the group picture. The same dress code is suggested for graduation.

Senior Cap and Gown Individual Photos will be taken AFTER the senior ceremony. Check Email regularly for more information on scheduling an appointment for these. Students do not need to have this taken if he/she already had this taken during regular senior portraits unless a remake is desired.
