Graduation Caps 2016

Class of 2017 Graduation Information

Senior Parents,
We are preparing for important events that will provide a rich and fitting culmination to your student's high school years. The information on this page will help ensure a smooth graduation for the Class of 2017. You also received this information in a packet mailed to your home. 

Senior Family Information: Your packet includes a form called Senior Family Information. Please fill out that form and return to Mr. Kevin Klaiber by April 13. 

Receiving the graduation packet does not ensure your son or daughter will graduate. Please instruct your son or daughter to check with Guidance to make sure he or she meets the criteria to graduate. Seniors also must have their service hours completed in order to receive their diploma on the night of graduation. Please turn in your service hours by May 12 to Director of Campus Ministry Maria Siap. 

If you have any questions, or if you did not receive a graduation packet in the mail, please contact Kevin Klaiber at 356-6377 ext. 1202 or We look forward to sharing these important events that will create many fond memories for you and your student.
