2021-2022 Grads

Commencement / Graduation

What will you wear?

This is easy!  All graduates wear black gowns and caps.  They have a great appearance and save the expense of a new outfit.The caps and gowns have been distributed to grads at OSS.  If you have not yet purchased a cap and gown, please do so ASAP.  They are available for purchase on SchoolCash online or with cash in the main office.  Grads must bring their pre-purchased gown with them to Rotary Place on June 28, 2022. 

No jeans please!  This is a formal occasion and we expect our grads to be dressed appropriately.
