MOTORCADE & AWARDS

Monday, May 23 Senior Motorcade Parade

All Seniors and their families are invited to kick off Senior Week by joining us for a drive-thru of the campus in your spirit-decorated cars, wearing your Graduation gowns. Vehicles will line up along Court Street as early as 5:00 pm and will begin a motorcade parade through the property at 5:30 pm

Monday, May 23 Senior Awards Night

Immediately following the motorcade, students and families are encouraged to stay for awards night. Instead of exiting the parking lot onto Court St, cars will be directed to park in the faculty lot. Once the motorcade is complete, families will be allowed to proceed to the auditorium. All other guests attending awards night who are not part of the motorcade are encouraged to arrive no earlier than 6:00 p.m. Although we hope everyone will attend, if you do not wish to stay for awards night, you will be able to exit the parking area by taking a right onto Court Street.  Formal attire is required for students attending awards night, so please plan accordingly.

Awards Night will begin at 6:15 p.m. The focus of the Senior Awards will bring recognition to many members of the Senior Class for their academic achievements as well as athletic, extra-curricular and leadership accomplishments. 

YEARBOOK SIGNING

The senior class will enjoy an afternoon in the school cafeteria and courtyard to provide some time and space for them to socialize and sign one another’s Yearbook from 2:00-3:30 .  Light refreshments will be served.

Seniors will sit with their families in the auditorium unless they are “on duty” as servers, readers, etc. Seniors are required to wear their Graduation
