Senior Information

Dear Senior Parents:

As graduation rapidly approaches, we want to take this opportunity to keep you informed of the various upcoming events.

As a reminder, due to the large number of graduates, we revised our seating at St. Mary Magdalen for our graduation ceremony two years ago. The seating arrangement will remain for the 2019 graduating class. Graduating seniors will be seated together in the first rows of the church, with the girls seated on the left main aisle and the boys seated on the right main aisle.

Graduates will receive a reserved pew, starting in the rows immediately behind the graduates. Because there are only 20 remaining pews behind the graduates, and we have 65 total graduates, families will be seated in the both the main pews and side pews. Because side pews seat half of what the main pews seat, families assigned to side pews will receive two. Families will be seated in a computer-generated random order.

Listed below is a schedule of graduation related events and the required attendance times for you and/or your child.
