Graduation for the Class of 2024 - Thursday, June 6th, 2pm at EagleBank Arena
View the Senior Student Presentation that occurred on Wednesday, January 10, 2024.
Class of 2024 Senior Dues are $70. These dues cover items such as graduation cap and gown, diploma cover, programs and other graduation day items and costs. Senior dues may be paid online using MySchoolBucks. Please note that this fee will not show up as an invoice to be paid within your MySchoolBucks account, and instead, you must search for this item within the school store.
If you choose to send in a check, please make sure it is made out to Woodson High School and that your student’s full name is written in the memo section so that we can match the payment with your senior.
Please know that when prom tickets go on sale in May, seniors must have any outstanding course fees, library fees, and unpaid parking tickets paid or cleared before they are permitted to purchase prom tickets. By graduation rehearsal on June 3, seniors will also need to have any unreturned textbooks and school issued laptops/chargers returned, and senior dues paid, before they can receive their cap & gown.
Outstanding items that seniors may have will be communicated to seniors and parents starting in April, with the exception of missing senior dues which will have notifications sent out throughout the remainder of the school year.
