Graduation Powerpoint

 

Cap and Gown Info

Students will pick up their graduation items (cap, tassel, gown, and tickets) during the week of May 17th at school.  In person students can stop by the main office during the school day to pick up their items.  Virtual students can come on Monday May 17th from 8:30am-3pm or Wednesday evening from 4-7pm at entrance 1.  Virtual students please do not come during the school day to pick up your items as it will cause a strain on our front office operations.  If you have any questions about pick up please contact Amanda Burke, graduation coordinator at @email.

If your child is uncertain if they ordered their cap and gown, no need to worry we have plenty of extras.  Just have them come during one of the pick up times and we will make sure they have what they need.  

Student Attire for Graduation

Students must wear the school issued cap, gown and tassel.  Students who belong to an approved honor society or met the service learning requirements, may wear the cord that represents that group (all cords will be handed out through the sponsor for the group prior to graduation).  Class council and SGA officers will wear stoles that signify their leadership role.   Students may decorate their caps for graduation but all decorations must be flat against the cap and contain no inappropriate words or images.  There are absolutely NO HEELS allowed on the turf field.  A wedge with a flat bottom is acceptable.  

Senior Dues (see below for more info) and any outstanding course fees must be paid prior to picking up Graduation items. 

 

Senior Dues

Senior Legacy Bricks

Senior parents, Time is running SHORT in order to purchase your Senior Legacy Brick in honor of your graduating Senior (or for other family members who are W.T. Woodson alumni). These Bricks make excellent graduation gifts!!

The Bricks will be installed in the courtyard between the main entrance and the auditorium entrance. Now that the graduation date has been set, we must make the deadline to order for installation this year as Friday, April 30th, so we can finalize the order with the engraving company. This will ensure we can receive the bricks in order to have them installed before the graduation ceremony at the football field.

You can order by filling out the Brick Order Form (found HERE) and sending your check to the mailing address indicated on the bottom of the order form. You can also pay online HERE and follow the instructions for what to engrave on the brick, or send a scanned copy of the order form to @email.

(We must have a copy of the order form on file to order the brick).

If you have any questions, please contact Katherine or Shane Gilbert at @email
