Parking update for Graduation!!! . Please note that parking will be challenging at Roy Wilkins this year, due to the closure of the River Centre Ramp. Consider alternative modes of transportation and also access the interactive map of all St Paul parking ramps here to plan your parking.
Additionally, a $5 parking voucher will be distributed to all graduates during the practice on Thursday, for the Victory Ramp.

New this year! The SPPS School Board has approved the wearing of ethnic, cultural, or identity adornments at our graduation ceremonies. This is an opportunity to celebrate your identity as part of our ceremony honoring your graduation. (see Examples of Adornments here) The adornment must be approved ahead of time, and meet certain size/material requirements. To register your intent to wear an identity adornment, fill out THIS FORM by May 25. You then must bring in the actual item to be approved, photographed, and tagged by Charlotte Landreau, during the week of May 29-31. Dr Tucker is the ultimate authority on the approval, and students can appeal to him if desired. This is voluntary, and families procure the adornments on their own. Here are some links which may be helpful: Stoles , Sarape sashes , Custom stoles
