    Seniors will be picking up their cap and gown on Thursday, 6/3 or Friday, 6/4 from 9 AM - 1 PM, using Door #2, in the CEC (formally known as the MRC). Tickets to the venue will also be handed out at this time, along with any applicable cords or school stoles (not to be confused with cultural adornments/ stoles, those are the responsibility of the student and family.)
    Seniors are also expected to return their iPad, charging block, and cord when they pick up their cap and gown, if they are done with their classwork. If they still have classwork to submit, they must turn it in on Tuesday, 6/8 at rehearsal.
