Please Read

Since the final year in high school represents the culmination of many efforts, achievements, and sometimes sacrifices, you will want to join us in making this one of the most meaningful years in the life of your student.

Mark Your Calendar

Many of the important events covered center around graduation and commencement activities.
Listed at the right is a schedule of these activities.

A studio will be set up on our campus for these days. No money is needed at the time you take your pictures. All proofs will be posted on Chadwick Photography’s website www.chadwickphoto.com. Pictures must be made with Chadwick Photography for the yearbook. Having all seniors’ pictures made by one photographer insures the same lighting background, which is essential for yearbook purposes. There will be cap & gown photos taken of each senior. Chadwick Photography will provide a cap and gown and stole for the pictures. Portraits are not full length.

Girls MUST wear a nice blouse or a dressy top (tops must cover all undergarments).

Boys MUST wear a starched dress shirt and a tie (a suit or sports coat if possible).

Things to remember: Don’t forget to bring your senior ring and letterman jacket (photos will be taken with each for those who bring them).
