Parents if you need just a couple more Graduation announcements, please have your senior stop by Mrs. Bridges’ room (SAV) between classes or before/after school to pick grab some.

Thursday, May 18 - Senior Fun Day: Seniors are invited to Power Play at 169 Highway and Barry Rd (former Best Buy location) from 10 a.m. to noon for games and camaraderie. Upon arrival, each student will receive a complimentary game card. Seniors may bring extra money for food, drinks and additional games.

Friday, May 19- Senior Breakfast / Graduation Practice (BRING LAPTOPS) / Slideshow: A free breakfast will be served from 8-8:45 a.m. in the cafeteria. Yearbooks will be distributed at breakfast and during graduation practice. All seniors who plan to participate in Graduation need to attend practice from 9 to 11:00 a.m. in the lower gym. Caps and gowns are not needed for practice. At practice, seniors must return their laptops to avoid being placed on the fine list. This is a good time for seniors to pay any remaining fines prior to Graduation Day. Immediately after practice, seniors may view the Senior Slideshow in the auditorium. Seniors who do not plan to participate in graduation should contact Ms. Ciani at 359-5741 by May 17.

Sunday, May 21 - Class of 2017 Commencement: The Commencement ceremony is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at the Kansas City Municipal Auditorium Arena in downtown Kansas City at 301 W. 13th St. You may invite as many family members and friends as you like—tickets and reservations are not required. We encourage you and your family members to arrive early to the ceremony to guarantee convenient seating. A special seating area on the main level will be available for guests with disabilities. Municipal Auditorium is located just off Broadway on 13th Street between Wyandotte and Central. The auditorium parking garage entrances are located on Central and Wyandotte between 12th and 13th Streets. The fee for the parking garage is $6-$8 per vehicle. Additional parking (some free) may be available on nearby streets or city lots. Carpooling is encouraged.

Graduates are to report to Municipal Auditorium by 4:30 p.m. dressed and ready to march in cap & gown. Caps and gowns are to be worn by all graduates. Men should wear dress shirts, ties, dress slacks (long pants-no jeans) and dress shoes (no tennis shoes/sandals). Ladies should wear dresses, skirts or slacks (no jeans) and dress shoes. Caps are positioned level on the head with the tassel on the right. Caps & gowns must be worn as issued and not disfigured in any way (no tape, signs, arm bands, etc.). Graduates will line up in alphabetical order.

Graduates will receive a blank red diploma holder on stage and will pick up a large white packet containing their diploma after the ceremony at tables near the graduate seating area. All fines must be cleared through the bookkeeper's office and all discipline obligations completed before the diploma is released. If your child has a fine, you have been notified via a note on the grade cards, by email, and parents can also check fine status in Infinite Campus. Please clear up these matters prior to Graduation Day.

Photos of each graduate will be taken during the ceremony by a professional photography service, Grad Images. Visit their website GRADIMAGES.COM/PREREGISTRATION to pre-register for your graduation photos. Proofs will be sent to you after the ceremony via email. You may purchase prints, if you choose. Check the insert in the diploma packet for more information. The ceremony will also be videotaped by a district videographer. To order a $20 DVD, please fill out an order form at http://bitly/2npZE6S. For questions, contact Cindy Small at smallcAparkhill.k12.mo.us or (816) 359-4000.

We recognize Commencement as an important and significant ceremony in everyone's life. It should not be confused with a celebration, which occurs after the ceremony is completed. We ask for your support in maintaining an atmosphere of class and reverence throughout the ceremony. Air horns, noisemakers, Silly String, bathroom tissue, balloons, etc., are not appropriate accessories for a commencement ceremony.
