The senior tribute will be available for early orders by May 21; the graduation DVD will be mailed in June.
  • Graduation photos: There will be a professional photographer taking pictures as each senior receives a diploma. You will receive information in the mail after commencement as to the cost and how to order, if you wish.

Make sure you have created your online account with the college you are planning to attend. Information about finances, housing, orientation, etc. will come to you through that account.
  • Transcripts: A transcript request form will be given to each senior during checkout on May 22, 2017  Every senior should receive a complete transcript after graduation to keep on file at home. Also on the form will be an area for the student to request an official transcript to be sent to the school they will attend next year. Fill out the form neatly so Mrs. Avery knows where to send it.
