    Senior Debts:  
     

    It is your responsibility to clear all debts before graduation. Debts prevent you from participating in senior activities such as prom and senior week. Return all books not being used to the book room (354) ASAP. If you have a debt, your yearbook will be held until Senior Checkout on June 14, 2017. Mrs. Facha has sent out numerous reminders of students with debts. If you are unsure, check with Ms. Facha in the business office during brunch or lunch, or before/after school.

     
    Graduation Info:
     

    My participation in the ceremony is optional, a privilege, and not a right.

    1. All obligations to the school (i.e. debts, classroom assignments and disciplinary consequences) must be cleared prior to the graduation in order to participate.

    2. All participants must attend practice on June 15 9:00AM, at TAK field behind Washington High School until we are done at approximately 12:00PM.Students late to practice will be placed at the end of the graduation line. Students who miss practice will not take part in the ceremony. Do not park in the Washington High School Parking lot.  Please park at the Community Center or on the street.  

    3. All participants must meet at the cafeteria at WHS at 1:30PM on June 15.

      Underneath the gown, students must wear formal day dress (no flip flops).

        • Jeans, tennis shoes, shorts, or T-shirts are not acceptable regardless of color, style, newness or cost. Any senior who has a question about appropriate dress should contact his/her administrator. Dress will be checked at the door.

     

    *If you need an interpreter for the deaf, please see Mrs. May ASAP.

     

    Guests will not be allowed on the field until the end of the ceremony. A professional photographer, Studio One, will take individual pictures after graduates receive their diplomas.

     

    Behavior and Attendance Expectations at Graduation:

    1. Any behavior between now and the end of the school year that results in a SUSPENSION from school may jeopardize your participation in Senior Activities and the Graduation Ceremony.

    2. Failure to submit evidence of 40 hours of service learning will result in the student not graduating.

    3. Failure to complete all academic graduation or certificate of completion requirements will result in the student not graduating.

       

      Graduation provides a time for ceremony, recognition, and celebration. Participation in the graduation ceremony is not required for graduation from high school; however all students who complete the Board of Education requirements for graduation are invited to participate. It is our intent that each graduate experiences the same courtesy, pride, recognition, attention, and respect.

       

      To ensure that this happens, we require the following graduation contract. We expect all to go well and for the celebration to begin after the ceremony when families are invited onto the field to join their graduate. Students who choose not to participate in the ceremony may pick up their diplomas from the registrar on Friday, June 19th.

       

    Please discuss our expectations with your attending group. We all want to be proud of this event. Thank you for your cooperation.
