SENIORS: Wednesday is Decision Day!! The Senior Meeting regarding end of year responsibilities, senior recognition night, graduation practice and graduation will be held during the morning. Students will be dismissed to the auditorium after announcements. At this meeting you will elect the representative boy and girl to speak for the class at graduation. Following the meeting you will get your caps and gowns. It will be at this time that you create a flag showing your fall 2015 decision. To where have you committed? A college, the military, employment? You will place your flag on the map showing your DECISION. At this time as well, all the scholarship offers for the class will be on display in the commons.
