Senior Cap and Gown Orders
On Monday, November 14 seniors will have an assembly in the FAC during Advisory and receive the information they need to order caps and gowns for graduation. Please make sure your student attends so they will receive this important information. If you have a cap and gown from a sibling who has already graduated, you are welcome to use it if it is in good condition. You would only need to order a new tassel. Students in NHS will receive a tassel and cord in April.
