• Senior 2020 IMPORTANT Information

    Don't miss out on walking because you were not informed!

    We are having the Graduation Ceremony at Globe Life Park in Arlington on June 14th at 8pm.

    The district has just announced a lot more details about how graduation will occur.  Please check out all the information on the district's graduation page.

    Graduation Dress is still being strictly enforces this year.   More than anything we want this ceremony to feel as special as possible.  We want to give you all the Pomp and Circumstance as is possible under these circumstances.  One way to do that is to practice the same formal dress requirements as all pf the classes that preceded you.
