Class Day is scheduled for May 24, 2017 in the Reynolds Auditorium at 10:00 AM. This event is for seniors to showcase their years at Reynolds and their talent for family, friends, and faculty. In addition, this is when we present the senior class to the faculty, administration, and student body. Awards and scholarships will be announced followed by the student program. Seats will be available on the ground floor of the auditorium for family and friends. Following the program, seniors are invited to a picnic. The cost of the picnic is included in senior dues. CLASS DUES ARE $45 MUST BE PAID to Ms. Kelly or Ms. Henry IN THE MAIN OFFICE BEFORE PROM on April 22nd. Class dues help to defray the cost of the senior picnic, Class Day, graduation, cap and gown purchases, diploma covers, tassels, and the printing of the diplomas. Failure to pay class dues will result in a student’s inability to attend both the prom and the senior picnic. Any senior not in attendance at the picnic will be expected to report to afternoon classes.
