Graduation Week Details

Posted Date: 5/28/24 (7:32 AM)

Seniors & Senior Parents: 
Here we are! Graduation week! I want to thank our incredible graduation committee for planning and pulling off all the events of the week! 
A couple notes:

  • Senior Lunch: 
    • Seniors should be at the Palm by 1:00 for the lunch.
    • Parents and family members are invited to join around 1:30 for the award presentations. 
    • Students will sit on the stage, family can sit in the audience.
    • Dress can be whatever you or your senior is comfortable with, historically people have dressed on the nicer side. 
  • Parade:
    • Students should be in the back parking lot no later than 3:30. 
    • Students can transport on anything with wheels – bikes, skateboards, cars, trailers, etc (one year we did have  roller skates, it was challenging to keep up)
    • We will be led by a fire truck and travel down Main St – turn around at town park and come back. We will stop in front of the Sheridan for a class picture.
    • Students should wear caps & gowns. I would recommend saving the tassel for graduation day as sometimes it falls off. 
  • Speech Rehearsal:
    • Everyone must practice their speech to Ms. Jenni and Rex. 
    • Student should line up outside the side Palm door between 11:30 – 1:30 (if you have an exam, please do not leave your exam early as there will be plenty of time).  
    • Speeches should be no more than 60 seconds and include your introduction. (They can be shorter, please not longer). We encourage creativity.         
  • Graduation Rehearsal:
    • Will begin at 1:30.
    • Caps and gowns not needed. 
    • Mandatory! 
    • It should be about an hour, maybe longer, maybe shorter!
  • FAQ: 
    • We will be sending out a link to graduation by Thursday morning and have it posted on the website.
    • We will be sending out queue order for entry by Thursday morning.
    • We will be sending out where your graduate is sitting by Thursday morning. 
    • If students have exams, all events have been scheduled in order for students not to miss or leave their exam early. 
    • If you have a relative in a wheelchair please let us know. 
    • Any other questions please ask Traci or myself.
We are extremely excited to celebrate with you all!
