Senior Class Updates

Hello Parents of the Class of 2019!

Congratulations! The special day is almost here. Let the countdown begin. But first we need to share some important information that requires your attention and action by graduation day.  

Senior Dues: Action Needed

We have been collecting Senior dues since the month of February. If you have not paid yet, the amount is $150, acceptable via MySchoolBucks. The deadline for Senior dues submission is April 28.

Taking into account the current class balance, this amount has been determined to primarily cover the following expenses:

  • Eagle Bank Arena: rental for graduation ceremony costs
  • Caps, tassels, gowns, and diploma covers
  • Prom: Venue, DJ, catering, and other expenses
  • Class gift: To be announced at graduation

Senior Obligations: Action Needed

Any Senior who failed to return a textbook, lost a library book, did not pay the activity fee for a sport or a field trip, or any other school fee, is on the Senior Obligations List. Seniors remaining on the Senior Obligations List after June 6th will not be issued a cap and gown and will not be allowed to attend graduation!

To avoid long lines at the Finance Office the day before graduation, please encourage your son/daughter to clear their obligations ASAP. Any student may check their obligation status by visiting the Finance Office during lunch.


Below is some information about upcoming events for the Senior class.
