Attention Parents/Guardians of the Class of 2018:

Graduation of the Class of ’18 is rapidly approaching!  ALL DUES MUST BE PAID IN FULL in order to walk at graduation.

The graduation ceremony for the Class of 2018  will be held at the Merriam Theater, June 12th promptly at 2:00 PM.  Students will receive 7 tickets for family/friends and students do not need a ticket themselves.  Those tickets as well as the entire calendar of graduation events for Seniors can be expected in early June.

​Anyone in need of an extra ticket or two may send a letter of request to Joanne Beaver, Principal, or better yet, ask another CAPA for any unused tickets.​

Any other questions may be addressed to Kelly Lannutti, Senior Class
