All seniors should plan to be at the Awards Assembly at 8:00 a.m., Friday, June 8, high school gym. Seniors receive the majority of the awards, so it is important to have all seniors present.  Seniors will be seated in the folding chairs on the gym floor.  Parents are welcome to attend.

Seniors participating in graduation are required to attend Graduation Rehearsal on Friday morning, June 8 after the Awards Assembly (approximately 9:00 a.m.), meet in the small gym.            We will have a swift rehearsal if all the graduates are in place and ready to go.

GradImages will be on-hand to capture a photograph of your graduate. The proofs will be posted on a password protected website for the graduates to view and order. If you have questions regarding this service, please call GradImages at 800-628-4509.

Graduates will pick up their diplomas in the SHS commons immediately following the graduation ceremony, (reminder: seniors who did not completely check out will not receive their diploma).

The Graduation Ceremony is the final event to recognize graduates for academic achievement. In keeping with the serious nature of the graduation ceremony, we expect that all graduates will conduct themselves in a way that brings honor to them, their families, and the school. The graduation ceremony is a school event and all school rules are in effect.

Expectations for appropriate dress and behavior will be reviewed with graduates in a class meeting on May 30, 2018.  There are to be no decorations or writing added to the cap and gown.  Parents and guardians are asked to encourage their graduate to make good decisions to avoid embarrassing moments during the ceremony.

Graduates please remember that drinking and driving is illegal and dangerous.  This is always a concern to parents and staff this time of year.  The Sherwood High School Grad Night 2018 Committee sponsors an excellent All-Night Party for graduating seniors.  This party is chaperoned by parents, and all graduates are encouraged to attend.  No bags, backpacks, purses, etc. are allowed at the all-night party.  Forms for the Grad Night Party are available in the Main Office at Sherwood High School.
