Please use the lots off of North O'Kelly Avernue for general parking.
The lots off of Williamson Avenue will be used for Special Needs Guest.
At this time each senior will be allowed seven (7) reserved seats for guests. Tickets will be issued at the end of graduation practice to each participating senior to distribute to his or her guests. The number of tickets that each student receives is determined by taking the number of available seats in the Elon gym, subtracting the number of seats for participating seniors and faculty, and then dividing by the number of participating seniors. The school has no more tickets to distribute. Students should ask friends who may not be using all seven tickets if additional tickets are desired.
Participating students must be properly attired in academic cap and gown. We expect all students to consider this an important event and to dress appropriately. Men are required to wear dark dress shoes, long dark (not khaki) dress pants, white shirts and dark ties. Ladies must wear dark dress (navy, black or dark chocolate brown NOT white, gold or straw wedges) shoes and dresses should not hang from under the gown. Bow ties and athletic shoes are not appropriate. Shoes that flop and/or have a strap between the toes are not appropriate. Dress sandals need a strap around the heel. The only ornamentation/decoration that is allowed will be a student's earned academic cords and medals. All students will wear white tassels.
$15.00 Graduation Rental Fee
We must collect $15.00 from each graduating senior participating in graduation. This money will be used to pay the rental fees at Elon. This fee, to be paid online as you have for Prom tickets, needs to be submitted by May 27, 2015. If online payment is not possible, please see Mrs. Murray in the office to submit the payment in cash. She will issue a receipt upon payment. This $15.00 fee does not include any charge for extra cleanup or damages. Please see Mr. Stephan if this is a hardship and would prevent you from participating in the ceremony.
A professional photographer will take a picture of each student as he receives his diploma. Each senior will be able to view a proof on the photographer’s website from which an order may be placed. No one will be allowed to come down front to take a snapshot. This decision has been made so that all parents and guests may see the event without obstruction. Please notify your guests of this ruling.
Practice for Graduation will be Wednesday, June 10 at 10 am. Attendance at practice is mandatory if you plan to participate on Wednesday evening. Seniors will be advised as to where to park for practice so they will not receive a ticket or be towed. At the conclusion of practice, students with speaking parts should plan to stay after practice to rehearse. Do not make other appointments during practice time. If there is an extenuating circumstance, call the school office (538-6020) so you may be in contact with Mr. Stephan about your situation. This is not a dress rehearsal so appropriate clothing is regular school clothes.
