Seniors, Seniors, Seniors

Awards and panoramic (date and venue change)

You know what they say about the best laid plans….

We were planning on having our senior awards at UTA Stadium, unfortunately the forecast calls for rain all of next week; so we have to pivot once again. We will be hosting our senior award on WEDNESDAY, MAY 19 at 7 PM at Fielder Church, 2011 S Fielder Rd, Arlington, TX 76013.

THIS IS A NEW VENUE AND NEW DATE We apologize for the change in date and venue, but it is necessary to accommodate all of our students.

WE ARE ALSO ASKING THAT STUDENTS LIMIT THEIR GUESTS TO TWO PER SENIOR.

We are still planning on having a panoramic at Fielder Church. Seniors need to arrive by 6:15 to be in place for the picture.

Again, our apologies for the short notice, but we want to make sure we get a senior awards ceremony in this year, rather than have to cancel due to weather at the last minute.

 

GRADUATION TICKETS

Seniors must request graduation tickets here https://forms.gle/wZKqUgzHPBiZgV8WA

Students may request up to 15 tickets. Reminder: this is NOT an automated system, so students will not get a confirmation email.

Mon, May 24 is the last day to submit a request. One request per senior.

If you're driving, enter from Sanford St.

 

Transportation:

Transportation to the location will be provided hourly from our six traditional high schools starting at 8:30 a.m. Please complete this survey so we have an idea on how many buses we will need to have ready.
