Senior Class Information


plan ahead seniors

Graduation rehearsal and ceremony Rememeber graduation rehearsal and ceremony are the same day, Tuesday May 30th.  You need to meet here at JFK dressed and ready for graduation by 2:30 so we can take the group cap and gown picture.  All seniors are required to ride the bus to the rehearsal but should leave the ceremony with their family members.  The ceremony starts at 6:30, doors open at 5:30.  Remind your family members they will not be able to enter The Ritchie Center any earlier than 5:30.

Cap and gown distribution We will distribute cap and gowns on Thursday April 20th from 10:30 – 11:30 in the main hall.  We will only give the cap and gown to the person whose name is on the order, you cannot pick up for your friends, sisters, etc.  We need to make sure everyone gets their own cap and gown to eliminate any confusion.

Mandatory Senior Class Meeting Wednesday April 5th at 9:30 am all seniors are required to attend the senior class meeting.  This meeting will give you all the information you will need to successfully complete your last two months of high school.  At the meeting we will go over expectations for graduation, senior check out, senior brunch, prom, etc.  The cap and gown distribution will be in the next couple of weeks, there was a shipping hold up.  We will communicate when seniors will be able to pick up their cap and gown.  The only form not on the website is the graduation agreement form, you must see Ms. Klomp for that form since it needs to be pink.
