MARK YOUR CALENDAR FOR THESE UPCOMING SENIOR EVENTS

(check often for updates)

 Graduation Fee: All seniors must pay the graduation fee. If you have a Graduation cap and gown from a sibling/friend that graduated in the past 4 years, you may use those items and not purchase a new set (tassel will be sold separately).  You must let Mrs. Rocco know in order to pay a reduced graduation fee rate. Please note that any set older than four years will not match the tone and sheen of the product used this year.  Unpaid graduation fees will become an obligation.
