Graduation Changed to Saturday, May 11th @ 10am

After surveying senior parents this summer, the results show great support to move graduation to Saturday, May 11th @ 10:00am.

Recommendation was made by a parent group last spring to see if we would consider moving graduation which has typically been held on the Sunday of Mother's Day. Parents suggested that moving the ceremony up one day would benefit those that travel by allowing them to spend more time after the ceremony celebrating with family and friends. Other benefits of the change would be gaining a day of rest before returning to work or school, especially to have the opportunity to show appreciation and celebrate Mother's Day.

Thank you to all who responded to the survey!
