Sunday, June 5
3:00 p.m.
Edman Chapel, Wheaton College

We are excited that our ceremony will return inside at Edman Chapel this year. At practice Tuesday, we changed the arrival time for seniors. We have asked them to arrive at Edman Chapel at 2:00 p.m., 15 minutes earlier than the previously communicated email. If they aren’t being dropped off, we would like them to park at the Billy Graham Center to allow closer parking for family and the elderly. Please remind them that they will need 10 minutes of walking time from parking to get to the chapel – so plan accordingly to get there by 2:00. (Students performing musical numbers during the ceremony have been given earlier call times for sound checks. They know what time they need to arrive).

Also, if your student becomes ill and will not be able to attend the ceremony, please text Jenn Trott at 630-624-2665 so that we can plan accordingly on Sunday. There are various details to plan out, and it will be helpful to know ahead of time if they won’t be in attendance.

Doors will open at 2:30 p.m. for General Admission seating. We are looking forward to a wonderful weekend of celebrations! (Wheaton Academy Commencement is not a production of Wheaton College).

Seniors Surface Pro Return
Seniors – Congrats on almost completing your WA education!  Sadly, that means parting with your beloved Surface Pro 6, pen, charger, and case. 

All seniors must return the Surface Pro 6, case, pen, charger, and keyboard to the WA I.T. department no later than 12:30 pm on Friday, June 3. 

All stickers (except the serial number barcode) must be completely removed!

Fees for damaged or missing Surfaces or Accessories (diplomas and transcripts are withheld until full payment is received):

Payment is via PushCoin.  For the Keyboard and case, it may be the most cost-effective to purchase a replacement in advance on Amazon and turn it in with the Surface Pro on or before Friday, June 3.  Questions?  Please contact Bob Vishanoff at bobvishanoff@wheatonacademy.org or 630 562 7554.
