GRADUATION ANNOUNCEMENTS

The deadline for ordering announcements is quickly approaching; however, packets are still available in the Fox Office.  The school store will also have a limited supply of extra announcements that you may purchase for approximately $2.50 each, if you find you need more.

CAPS & GOWNS (What to wear?):

As this is a formal ceremony, appropriate apparel is required. Appropriate attire under gowns is required also, including footwear (no tennis shoes, flip-flops, or jeans). Gentlemen should wear long pants. Caps and gowns are mandatory for participation in the graduation ceremony. They may be purchased through the School Store (663-6187) for $30.00 on Wednesday, June 1st from 7:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. Those leaving on the Physics Fieldtrip should pick up their cap and gown before departing.  Checks should be made payable to Memorial High School.

CREDIT VERIFICATIONS (How does the school verify my credits?):

Students will be allowed to participate in graduation ceremonies if they have earned at least 20.5 credits. Credit verification forms will be distributed to seniors just before final exams and must be verified by your counselor and returned to the Fox Neighborhood Office. If the form is not filled out properly or not turned in, the student will NOT be allowed to participate in the graduation ceremony.

OBLIGATIONS (When will I get my Diploma?)

Students having outstanding fees, fines or obligation WILL NOT receive their diplomas at the Kohl Center. Please be sure to resolve all library books, class fees, registration fees, equipment returns, credit verification form, etc. PRIOR to graduation practice. Avoid problems by meeting responsibilities before that time.

CLASS PICTURE / REHEARSAL (Wednesday before Graduation)

Don’t miss out! The class picture will be taken immediately at 12 noon. Proceed to the gym following morning exams. An alphabetical listing of the order in which you should line up will be posted on the Fox Neighborhood Office window and on the trophy cases across from the Main gym. Check the listing and be prepared to line up as indicated.  This is a mandatory rehearsal for everyone planning on participating in the graduation ceremony.  See Mr. Hendrickson if you have any questions.

Graduation

Graduation is held at the University of Wisconsin Kohl Center on Saturday, June 11, 2016 at 10:00 a.m.  Tickets are NOT required and everyone can attend.  Information regarding parking will be given out at rehearsal.

Please call Peggi Dahmen (663-6101) if you have any questions.
