Seniors will meet at 9:00am in the auditorium for further
instructions. We will run through the graduation program twice, so
don't make any plans for early afternoon. You will be here for a
while. If you have a speaking part you will need to stay later than
everyone else so we can check the sound system settings for your
part in the program. THIS IS MANDATORY!
Service will begin at 6:00 pm at Candies Creek Baptist Church.
You will need to arrive no later than 5:30 pm so that we may
gather together to get some organization to our entrance.
This is a special service to honor you. Attendance is
optional. If you do plan to attend bring your cap and
gown. You will enter as a class of graduates. After the
service the church will hold a reception for you and your
family. Please try to attend if at all possible. The
church is going out of its way to offer this chance to you.
Let's thank them with our attendance.
Thursday, May 9, 2013
All seniors need to meet in the auditorium in your designated
area no later
than 6:30pm with
everything that you are supposed to bring. Don't forget to
bring your cap, gown, tassel, and any other parts of your attire
with you. Use the restrooms in the lobby area for last minute
touch ups. We will line up in the auditorium and walk in a
line to the football field. Help out by making sure you are
in the right place in line and make sure all of those around you
are distinguished looking.
When you go across the stage you will be handed a piece of paper
rolled to look like a diploma. It is not! After the
ceremonies are over, please come back to the cafeteria and pick up
Alternate arrangements will be in place if weather does not permit
graduation to be outside. Those will be given at a later
Senior Update 2013
Can you believe it? Time is soon approaching for you to
graduate high school! Congratulations! But before time runs
out there are a number of things that you need to be made aware
First things First
School is not out yet and you do not have that diploma that you
are so close to receiving. Be sure to continue to study and
get good grades that are needed. The last thing we want to do
is pull someone from the line because they failed a class, but
believe me, it could happen. Please do not put us in that
situation. Don't mess up when you are this close.
Cap and Gowns, Graduation Materials
The Balfour company will be here some time after the beginning
of the new year. Watch the senior information board in the
hallway for details or listen to the Spill. Information will
also be place on the WVHS website.
Attire for Graduation
Girls need to wear a dress that is no longer
than the gown. Shoes need to be navy or black. The
white collars that came with your cap and gown need to be
attached before you arrive (either sew them on or attach with
safety pins). Dressy sandals are appropriate.
Boys need to wear either black or navy dress
pants, white shirt, and a tie. Shoes need to be dark and
should be closed toe. Flip flops are not recommended since
this is to be a distinguished ceremony.
Everyone please do not pull the
gown out of the bag and wear it. Iron it with a cool
iron or hang in the bathroom so that the steam will help
relax the material. Caps are to be worn flat (not
tilted). You should look dignified.
Fees and Bills
Please make sure all fees are paid and all materials are
returned. This includes lunch charges, library books, team
uniforms etc. The deadline is May 9,
2012. You must have a clean slate.
You will be pulled from the graduation line if
you owe fees and you will not receive your diploma until fees are
If you are planning on attending college next year you need to
make sure that you have notified the guidance office
in writing that you need a
final transcript of your grades sent. There are forms
available in the guidance office for you to fill out. You
need to do this soon so you don't forget. You must
stop by the guidance office and fill out a final
transcript!!!!! Even if you have done a transcript
in the past, you must do this final one! This
must be done!
All locks must be turned in to your 1st
block/2nd flex teacher by Wednesday, May
5th. If you do not return the lock there is a $5.00
charge to replace the lock. You will be responsible for
paying this before graduation!
