Graduation

Graduation will be here before we know it! The SHS PTA has started to plan for the end of the year activities that will celebrate our graduating seniors. This year, the SHS PTA will host or collaborate on a number of special events for our graduating class, including the Graduation Day ceremony, a reception following the ceremony, a Graduation rehearsal lunch, a Baccalaureate and Awards Night reception and a Graduation Celebration that will take place at Longshore.

These events are organized by the SHS PTA, happen rain or shine and are funded with contributions from parents and local organizations and businesses.

This year, the Graduation Celebration will take place the night before graduation from 9pm-Midnight at Longshore. There will be music, entertainment, food, and amazing door prizes distributed throughout the evening. So as not to conflict with Baccalaureate, this event begins at 9pm. Please encourage your graduates to attend the party, as this is their last celebration as a class.

We are asking that each senior class family donate $60.00 toward the cost of these events. Participation by all of the families of the Class of 2017 will ensure that the events are high quality and fun-filled. Your contributions will help make memories that will last for years to come and, most importantly, will help keep our children safe as they celebrate these special occasions. Thank you in advance for your support.
