Class of 2020 Graduation Information

Senior Parents,
We are preparing for important events that will provide a rich and fitting culmination to your child’s high school years. The information on this page will help ensure a smooth graduation for the Class of 2020.  The page will be updated in the spring as details are confirmed.

Senior Family Information: Your student will receive a form called Senior Family Information. Please fill out that form and return to Mrs. Margaret Zeh Fulford. More information to come in the spring,

Receiving graduation information does not ensure your son or daughter will graduate. Please instruct your son or daughter to check with Guidance to make sure he or she meets the criteria to graduate. Additionally, information regarding future plans and scholarships must be submitted to Guidance in early May in order to guarantee its inclusion in the commencement events. 

Seniors also must have their service hours completed in order to receive their diploma on the night of graduation. Please turn in your service hours by April 30.

Friday, May 22 – Commencement Rehearsal. Seniors will need to report to the gym at 9:00 a.m. to rehearse for the ceremony. This is a mandatory event for participation in Commencement. Please arrive on time. The administration reserves the right to prohibit a senior who arrives late from participating in graduation. This practice will go as long as it takes to ensure a quality graduation.
