Dear Senior Parent or Guardian and Student,
This has been a wonderful year at Reynolds with new and old faces alike. As we begin to move near the end of the year, we feel that it is important to share the following information so that you can prepare in advance for upcoming events including graduation.
CAP AND GOWN DISTRIBUTION
Senior caps and gowns will be distributed in an afternoon homeroom on May 22, 2013. Any student debt and/or $45 class dues MUST be paid to Ms. Murphy in the main office by 4:00 PM on May 17th. 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. Students who fail to pay their dues and debts by May 17th will not receive their caps and gowns on the 22nd. Debt money and senior dues will not be collected from 4:00 PM on Friday, May 17th until 8:00 AM on Thursday, May 23rd.
Please note: The main office will hold the caps and gowns of any senior who has been notified that a senior failure card has been completed. Caps and gowns will be released to seniors only after receiving written proof from counselors that all academic deficiencies have been satisfied and the student will satisfactorily complete the course(s). Notes from counselors may be brought to Mrs. Gordon in the main office.
Class Day is scheduled for May 24, 2013 in the Reynolds Auditorium at 10:00 am. This event will be for seniors to showcase their years at Reynolds and their talent for family, friends, and faculty. In addition, this is a time when we present the senior class to the faculty, administration, and student body. Awards and scholarships will be announced followed by the student program. Parents are welcome and seats will be available on the ground floor of the auditorium. Following the program, seniors are invited to a picnic. The cost of the picnic is included in senior dues. Class dues are $45. Failure to pay class dues will result in a student’s inability to attend the senior picnic or walk at graduation. 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. Any senior not in attendance at the picnic will be expected to report to afternoon classes. We will have a class day practice during the 2nd half of 4th period on May 23rd and all seniors are expected to attend.
Dress for seniors on Class Day is as follows:
Young Ladies: Spring dresses, dress slacks, pantsuits, dress shoes in neutral colors (black, brown, tan, silver, gold)
Young Men: Coats, shirts with collars, tie, dress pants, socks, and dress shoes. No boots or tennis/athletic shoes of any kind are permitted.
Because this is a school function, students are expected to follow the school dress code.
If you need assistance of any kind in securing the proper attire, please see Mrs. Gordon in the main office by May 16, 2013. Failure to follow this dress code will result in a student being pulled from the line-up.
Following the program, seniors are invited to a picnic at Bolton Park. Only RJR seniors may attend the picnic. Anyone else, including children and family members, will be turned away. The cost of the picnic is included in senior dues. Any senior not in attendance at the picnic will be expected to report to afternoon classes. Attendance will be taken at the picnic.
Graduation practice is Friday, June 7th at 3:30 PM. Any student who is late to or absent from practice will not be allowed to participate in the graduation exercises. No exceptions will be given.
Graduation will be held in the Lawrence Joel Coliseum, Saturday, June 8, 2012 at 3:00 pm. Seniors are to report at 2:00 pm. No graduate will be added to the line-up after 2:30 pm. Admission is at the main entrance only; tickets are not required, but choose your attendees wisely so that we can maintain a dignified celebration.
Dress for graduation is as follows:
Young Ladies: Comfortable dresses, dark slacks, neutral colored dress shoes (black, brown, tan, gold, silver)
Note: For safety reasons, it is recommended that all shoes should have a covered heel or strap at the heel.
Young Men: White shirts with ties, dark dress slacks, dark dress shoes and socks. No boots or tennis/athletic shoes of any kind are permitted.
Any problem with a cap or gown must be reported to Mrs. Gordon by May 31. Failure to follow the dress code will result in a student being pulled from the line-up.
Please remind your senior to take care of any debts prior to June 7th. Failing to pay any debts will result in a student’s inability to participate in graduation exercises.
