    Graduation Cords

    Tuesday, May 7th, we will begin selling Graduation Cords for $10.00 in the main office. You can purchase them before school and during all three lunches. The cords will be passed out after Graduation rehearsals on Friday, May 24th.

    Graduation Tickets

    Graduation ticket pick-up will be Wednesday, May 15th during all three lunches.

    Only Senior’s with a picture ID will be allowed to pick up their tickets. The tickets are the responsibility of the student and cannot be replaced. Each Senior will be issued 12 tickets. There are no extras.

    Children under 2 do not need a ticket if sitting on lap. Children 2 & up require a ticket.

    Cap & Gown:

    The cap and gown for graduation have changed slightly. Seniors that planned to use an older siblings' cap or gown will need to obtain the updated ones. Seniors can exchange their gowns for new ones (free of charge). Seniors will need to purchase their cap and tassel from Josten's.

    Parking & Driving Directions:

    Parking garages and certain lots charge a parking fee. Be prepared to pay up to $15.00 per vehicle. There may be some free parking, but be prepared just in case. This came as a surprise to some guests last year and held up the line of traffic. Guests are advised to plan for possible traffic delays in the Arlington area.
