Below are explanations of some of the events and items that you might come across as you prepare for graduation:


Cap & Gown Orders – December.  $$  Watch for email to order your cap and gown for graduation.  Contact the Dean or Students or your counselor if you need help with the cost for this.  If you don't want to keep your gown, donate back to JHS to help students for next year.

Senior Announcements - $$ Some students order professionally printed announcement cards, with or without their photo included.  These are given or mailed to friends and relatives as a way of announcing their graduation.  This is not required.

Senior Prom - $$  An evening dance with a band or DJ organized by the ASB Senior Cabinet.  Often held at a location in Seattle during May.  Purchase tickets through ASB.  Most students get dressed up in long evening gowns and suits/tuxedos.  Get together with friends and take pictures beforehand.  Some students also go to dinner before, and/or have a party after.
               PRO TIP: Watch for "promposals" where one student creates an elaborate sign, gift, display, or announcement as a way of proposing or asking another student to prom.

Baccalaureate - An optional non-school sponsored faith-based service open to all graduating seniors and their families. This is a student-lead service focused on honoring faith and the soon to be graduates. 

Senior Breakfast - a breakfast at school put on by staff and volunteers.  Usually on the morning before graduation.

Senior Assembly - An at-school assembly of the senior class.  Usually following the Senior Breakfast.
