This is a message regarding the picking up of diplomas, certificates, awards, grad composites and yearbooks. We are going to offer the opportunity for graduates to pick up these items on Friday October 9th at 1 pm. Weather permitting, this will occur in our driveway underneath the Nighthawk tent in front of the school. We would ask that you enter off of Park Street, drive towards the flagpole, remain in your car, receive your items and then exit via Collegiate Drive. If need to designate someone else, including your parents, to pick up your items please send an email to Mrs. Bruce ( In that email be sure to include your full name, the items you believe are to be collected and the full name of the person picking up your items. If you are not able to arrange for anyone to pick up your items, please await further instructions for the next opportunity. We need to see how this first run works out. We will need to shut down the distribution at 1:30 p.m. sharp to allow for our regular school bus runs to load up. It might be wise to be on time or even a little bit early. If you have any questions please contact the school.

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.

We will be ordering "Souvenir Packages" this year, which means that students will keep both the cap and gown. 

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

If you will require assistance being seated, please contact the guidance office at (705) 329-4537, ext. 42262.
