Upcoming senior events mark end of year

Lauren Blosser
At the Class of 2023’s graduation, graduates toss their caps into the air. Graduation for the Class of 2024 will take place on May 11.

Senior Awards Night – May 1

Seniors who received an invite from the College and Career Office will receive awards during Senior Awards Night May 1, at 7 p.m. Seniors Sarah Ebenezer and Chris Songco will be emceeing the ceremony.

At the ceremony, the following categories of awards will be given out: academic, departmental, recognition, scholarships and student choice.

Students receiving awards will have assigned seats and are welcome to bring friends and family. While there is no official dress code, the College and Career counselors encourage students to dress up.

Cap and Gown Pick-Up – May 6

Cap and gown pick-up will occur on May 6 during AcLab in the Commons.

Seniors who miss pick-up must contact Assistant Principal Tim Jones to arrange another time to do so.

Seniors can not have siblings or friends pick up their cap and gown for them.

Checklist – May 9

Seniors must have the following tasks done by May 9 in order to participate in Graduation Practice:

  • May 6 – turn in Chromebooks and chargers in the Commons between 10:30 a.m. and noon.
    • If seniors need to keep their Chromebooks for AP Testing, their diplomas will be held and given to them once their Chromebook is returned.
  • Seniors should check with the library staff to make sure they don’t have any library fees.
  • Seniors must request their final transcripts from the College and Career Office.
  • Seniors must be sure to complete their Grad Intent and Senior Exit Surveys.
  • Any spring athletes must turn in all uniforms and equipment.
    • If seniors need to keep their uniform, their Diplomas will be held and given to them once their uniform is returned.
  • Get senior checkout list signed by Jones and returned to Room 261 by May 9 at 4 p.m.

Graduation Practice – May 10

Graduation Practice will be held in the Back Gym from 9-11 a.m. on May 10.

Anyone with conflicts during the scheduled Graduation Practice must reach out to Jones, who is making alternate plans on a case-by-case basis.

Visiting Old Schools – May 10

After Graduation Practice on May 10, seniors will be able to walk through the Rockwood elementary and middle schools they attended. Students will meet outside the building and enter as a group, all wearing their cap and gowns.

“You’ll get an opportunity to go to at least one of the schools you went to, if not both,” Jones said.

The elementary and middle school visit times are staggered so that they shouldn’t overlap. Times were arranged by individual school principals to find a time that doesn’t disrupt the school day. The schedule will be projected at Graduation Practice and was sent out on StudentSquare.
