High school graduation rehearsals start June 6

MEMO TO: Parents and Seniors

FROM: Mr. Jorgensen

DATE: May 2018

RE: Graduation

The most exciting part of the school year is fast approaching - graduation season! In order to ensure that this much anticipated event goes smoothly, I would like to remind everyone of some critically important requirements that must be kept in mind in the final weeks leading up to June 22nd:


1) We need everyones’ cooperation - it is your graduation and therefore your responsibility.

2) Attendance at the first graduation practice is mandatory – no exceptions! If you must be excused from any future practices, it must be cleared through me and it will be very rare that I excuse anyone.

3) The first practice will take approximately 30 minutes – so please be seated in the West Gym by 2:30 p.m.

4) The length of any practice will depend on your cooperation.

5) Students with outstanding obligations will not be allowed to participate in the graduation ceremony.
