Senior marching practice will be conducted Wednesday, May 30, from 8:30-11:00 a.m. and 12:15-1:45 p.m.; Thursday, May 31, from 8:30-10:00 a.m.; and Friday, June 1, from 8:30-10:30 a.m. — These practices are mandatory for all seniors; students failing to attend them jeopardize their eligibility to participate in Commencement. Also, please remind your senior to wear the same shoes that he/she will be wearing at Commencement for marching practices.
Please reinforce with your senior that all books and other school property must be returned to the bookstore (iPads and all accessories to be returned to the IT office) and all seniors must complete an exit interview with their academic counselor no later than Tuesday, May 29. We cannot issue caps and gowns until these requirements are met. Your help is greatly appreciated.
On Thursday, May 31, the seniors will travel to Lake George State Park in Canaan for a cookout. School transportation is provided by MCI and required of those attending (i.e. students must ride the bus). The school provides this activity especially for the senior class and all seniors are encouraged to attend.
Commencement tickets will be distributed Wednesday, May 30. Each senior may request up to six reserved seats. Commencement is planned for the front lawn, with both reserved and unreserved seating available. In case of inclement weather, it will take place in Wright Gymnasium with unreserved seating available in the bleachers. Please complete the ticket request form located on the enclosed schedule of events and return by Friday, May 18.
Senior Chapel will be held on Friday, June 1, beginning at 1:00 p.m. in Wright Gymnasium. Appropriate attire is required by all seniors at Senior Chapel and Commencement.
