Seniors were measured for Cap & Gown

All members of the senior class were measured for their graduation caps and gowns last week but a makeup day will be announced as soon as a new list is generated. Thank you to all of the seniors who remembered to come to be measured for you cap and gowns last week during lunch, and additional thanks to the teachers who helped remind them to do so. You must have a cap and gown to participate in the graduation ceremony. For the seniors that were not able to make it down, once we compile our data we will summons the remaining students to come down and be measured at a later date. 

The required measurements are detailed here to assist you in obtaining accurate measurements.
