SENIORS

  • Attention all Seniors: With graduation coming up quickly, you must check the Senior Class Blackboard page and your student email as often as possible. We will send out lots of information over the next few weeks, and it's the best way to stay up to date.
  • Attention SENIORS: Photographers from Lifetouch will be in the auditorium to take Cap and Gown pictures for anyone interested on April 25th. You will not need to bring anything. Photographers will have caps and gowns for you to wear. Please sign up outside of Mrs. Acker's room 267 as soon as possible for an appointment time. 
  • Help us tell everyone your plans after graduation. Outside the library, there are now banners posted for various colleges, the armed services, and the workforce, so there is a banner for everyone. Please come by the library to get your name tag and place it under the correct banner. If you do not see your college posted, let the librarians know so they can add it. The goal is for all senior names to be posted under a banner before the honors banquet on April 25th.
