2021 Senior Events

We are so excited to be able to share that we will be able to provide a live commencement this year for our graduates!  As you know, we have been working very hard to make this a reality.  Even more exciting is that our students will be able to graduate at Arthur W. Perdue (Shorebirds Stadium) and actually receive their diploma on home plate while being projected on the big screen!  What a great memory for them!

We have worked with the Shorebirds organization to schedule around their games and other events, so we had to adjust the date of graduation.  Our students will be graduating on June 12 at 2:30 pm.  Each graduate will receive four tickets for the event.  The event will be live streamed so that those who cannot physically attend the event will still be able to celebrate with us.

As we finish out the school year and plan for events please understand that we are still required to follow the last executive order which I have attached.  The key components for us is that we are still required to follow the 6ft social distancing and 50% capacity limits for both indoor and outdoor gatherings.

In a collaborative effort between our SGA Officers, Senior Class Advisors, Guidance Counselors and Administration we have and are planning some exciting opportunities for our seniors, so please mark these dates on your calendars. It will also be important that you keep an eye on our school website, social media platform and parent messages as there may be other events planned.  As this happens this list will be updated and shared. Please remember that masks must be worn at all of these events:
