All Bands & Orchestra – Graduation

Hello Everyone,

Graduation is Friday, June 2nd!  Students need to be in the cafeteria by 4:15pm ready to play.  So they should arrive a little after 4pm in the band/orchestra room to get their instrument and music.  There will be a check-in list in the cafeteria.  Seniors also need to arrive by 4:15pm to assemble their instrument, this applies to seniors using band/orchestra instruments AND those who are using their personal instruments.   Seniors will hand off their instrument to their “designated instrument carrier” and then head to the gym to line up for graduation.

Students should dress in black bottoms (black jeans acceptable, no yoga pants).  Skirts need to knee length or longer.  They also need to wear a white shirt (not sleeveless).  All black shoes (they do not have to be closed toed).  Please have your student bring a jacket in case the weather cools down.  Finally, make sure your student has something to eat prior to arriving as they will not have an opportunity to eat until after graduation, approximately 7:30pm.

Seniors who are playing their own instrument for graduation, please check-in any band/orchestra instruments prior to the end of the school year.  Those seniors playing in graduation and using a band/orchestra instrument will have 30 minutes from the “hat toss” to return their instrument.  Failure to do so will result in their diploma being withheld.

All students need to check-in their band/orchestra instrument right after graduation.  If your student would like to check out their band/orchestra instrument for the summer, there will be a specific table to do so.  Please DO NOT leave any personal instruments in the band/orchestra room over the summer.

Parent volunteers are needed to help check-in/out band/orchestra instruments after graduation.   If any underclassmen parents would like to help out the night of graduation, please contact Dawn at 824-2337.

Thank You!
