The Senior Prom is coming up June 3rd. As seniors make prom dress and attire purchases this spring, please be certain to follow the dance dress code below. If unsure, see an administrator for approval prior to purchase.
Formal Dance Dress Code
· Tuxedo, dress suit or slacks, and dress shoes. No jeans or tennis/athletic shoes.
· Shirts are to be worn at all times.
· Formal dresses or gowns may be strapless or feature spaghetti straps.
· Exposed backs are acceptable; however, bare stomachs or bare midriffs are not permitted;
· Dress shoes or sandals are to be worn
· Undergarments should not be visible. See-through apparel and gowns or dresses with slits that are above mid-thigh area are not permitted. Extremely tight or extremely low-cut garments are also unacceptable.
As you start the first part of 2017, I can only guess since it has been a history for the last few years of parents/students wanting to know if they can still order. Well as you know, they can. Here are some answers for you if:
The senior class currently owes $20,142.00 in outstanding fines and fees.
Seniors, please pay your fines at the ASB office or online by visiting the GKHS website and using the “Pay Online” link. (student ID number is their account name and password is last name.) Mrs. Fjeld is available during school hours for you to make payments. You may also check your fine status at the ASB office or online.
Transcript requests will not be processed until all fines/fees are paid. This includes AP testing fees.
Take care of your fines early!
Each graduate who meets the criteria below will be issued five tickets to the graduation ceremony.
Students will receive tickets if he/she:
Ø has a status that predicts graduation requirements have been met
Ø has paid all fines and fees owed to the school and the district
Ø has a cap and gown ordered
Five additional tickets will be available to all seniors who successfully complete their student led conference ON TIME as scheduled during the May conference week (May 16-18) with their portfolio and senior project completed. Tickets will be distributed to seniors the morning of graduation practice on June 7.
Each person who attends the ceremony, with exception of the graduate, must have a ticket – young children and babies count and need tickets.
Additional tickets may be purchased at the ASB office for $5.00 each beginning May 30.
