Wristbands for graduation will be distributed on Tuesday, May 28 in the quad after school (12:48-2:00).  You MUST have your ID with you in order to pick them up.  Each graduate will receive 10 wristbands.  We are not responsible for lost wristbands, and you will NOT be given more if you lose them.

On your wristband envelope you will find your seat for graduation.  Please take a picture or memorize it.  That will be your assigned seat at graduation.  We will be using these seats for the practice and ceremony.

 Below is a link to a Google Form.  This is your permission slip to ride the bus to graduation practice on Thursday.  It MUST be completed before you come to school Thursday for the practice.
