Senior Sweatshirt Photo and Commencement Practice
Seniors will pose for a photograph in their respective college sweatshirts all together. Then proceed to Commencement Practice, which is mandatory in order to graduate.

We will promptly begin at 10:30 a.m., but families are strongly encouraged to come earlier. The seats are on a first come, first serve basis. Seniors should report to Mrs. Goldman’s room by 9:00 a.m.

Students will receive their cap, gown, sash, and respective cords before graduation. It is recommended that these be gently steamed so they look neat and clean for graduation.
