Planning on graduating this year?  As a grad, you will receive a lot of information starting in the Spring.  You will be asked to make sure you have submitted all of your Community Hours and will be required to attend mandatory assemblies to learn about awards and important deadlines.  There will be rehearsals and tickets to pick up, so it is important that you listen for announcements or check the bulletin board outside the main office for announcement postings.  You will also find a list of “potential” grads posted near the Guidance Office that will keep you informed of who is eligible to graduate and who is not.
