Senior News

Hi Seniors, it’s Ms. Lord, your yearbook and Bobcat News advisor and I’m here to update you about senior events!

All seniors are required to complete the senior survey and the graduation reader card. See your English teacher if you missed these activities in class. The survey and reader card must be returned by Monday, May 8.

If you do not plan to participate in graduation, please let an administrator know ASAP.

On Wednesday, May 10, from 5-7pm, come to Senior BBQ in the Cafeteria Area. You are required to attend to pay any outstanding fines and fees to be allowed to walk in graduation. Once your account is in good standing, you can pick up your Cap & Gown for graduation. Also at Senior BBQ, pick up honor cords and tassels, your pre-ordered yearbook, and panoramic photo. There will be food and music. This event is for seniors only. If you did not preorder a yearbook, bring $90 cash or a check made out to NPHS.

Senior exams start on Monday, May 15. Especially if you leave campus for STC, OJT, or Dual Enrollment, be aware of the exam schedule. You are responsible to be in attendance at your exams. Missed exams could compromise your ability to walk in Graduation.

On Friday, May 19, Graduation practice starts at 8am in the PAC. Graduation practice is mandatory for all students planning to participate in graduation. Graduation tickets (8 tickets per graduating senior) will be distributed at the end of practice. Seniors participating in the Elementary graduation walk will leave for the walk immediately after practice, so be sure to bring your cap & gown along to practice.

On Saturday, May 20, graduating seniors need to report to the gym by 7:30am. You may NOT wear heels for graduation except for wedge-type heels. If you show up to graduation in stiletto-type heels, you will not walk. Flats are recommended for graduation. Leave ALL unneeded items in your car as there is nowhere to store items. Seniors report at 7:30am. The ceremony begins at 9:00am.
