Your child has finally entered his/her last two months of high school, and Commencement will be here before you know it. The caps and gowns, along with the announcements were given out on March 23, 2016. The culmination of four years of high school is coming to an end. Please encourage your son/daughter to focus their efforts on graduation so that it becomes a reality for him/her on May 29th. All too often a student falters down the home stretch when the goal was within easy reach. It’s what we call “Senioritis”.
Please help your child avoid any problems by encouraging them to complete the course work that is necessary. This may be a time of joy and celebration for both you and your child, however failing to carry out their responsibilities, can result in failing to graduate or participate in the ceremonies with their class. This will certainly dampen everyone’s enjoyment of this very special time and would be a shame to end their high school career on. The weeks ahead will be extremely busy for all, and the time will fly by quickly. Please encourage your son or daughter to devote his/her attention to these closing days, as they will provide some of the most vivid memories of their high school career – let’s make the memories enjoyable and pleasant.
All dues and fees must be paid prior to the May 25, 2016 graduation practice to be able to participate in graduation ceremonies.
