Tues, April 9 MS/HS Announcements

SENIORS: In preparation for Jostens arriving with your graduation gowns, we will start collecting money this week for the gown rentals. Please bring one check for $20 and one for $5 (or cash) for the gown rental.  Once the gowns are returned, the $20 check or cash is given back to you. You MUST bring $25 or you will not get your gown when Jostens is here.  They plan to come mid to late April and I will notify you when the date is set. Please note this only applies if you plan to rent a gown. If you purchased a gown, this does not apply to you.
