For seniors at SMHS, graduation is coming up as there are only a few more months left in the school year. On May 28th at 7 p.m. the seniors will be in their caps and gowns ready to move on and be done with high school forever

Getting through second semester can be really challenging, especially for seniors who are most likely bored, tired, or just trying to pass their classes and survive. Knowing that I only have a couple more months left of the school year is what motivates me,” said senior Whitney Weyforth 

Making my family proud is what’s motivating me,” said senior Rylea Wilson.  

To prepare for graduation seniors should have already ordered their caps and gowns (if not the price has gone up). Other than that, the only thing that seniors can do at this point in the school year is to keep their grades up and prepare for what comes after graduation as well.  

There’s also the fun stuff like Senior quotes which are due February 13th and can be turned it to Mrs. Jorgenson, making graduation announcements, getting senior pictures taken, getting caps and gowns in March, and even decorating caps. 

College is also a major topic on student’s minds and the next big step in their lives. However, seniors should definitely prepare and give it some thought way before graduation. Ms. Crane will be available February 12th all day in the library to help with scholarships, college applications, and more. 

There is currently also a cover design contest for the graduation programs. Designs can be submitted to Mrs. Jorgenson in room 229 until February 21st. This is a fun way for anyone of any grade level to participate and contribute to the biggest day of the school year.  


designs can be turned in up to February 21st
