Graduation will be held on May 21st at 1:00 PM at the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena located downtown. Students are required to have a purple cap and gown ordered through the school in order to participate. If they have not ordered a cap and gown, please leave a message at 414-212-2464 with your student’s name, height, and weight. Students will receive (10) tickets for graduation and an additional (2) tickets if they have completed their FAFSA. Families are allowed to arrive (1) hour prior but no earlier. Formal dress is encouraged and balloons will NOT be allowed in the building.
The graduation fee is $100 and this includes the cost of the cap and gown. Students will not be allowed to participate in the graduation ceremony if the graduation fee has not been paid. If your student is not participating in the graduation, the fee will be $15 to cover the cost of the certificate of completion and certificate of completion cover. You will be notified when cap, gown, and tickets are available to pick up. The last day to pick up cap and gown will be Tuesday May 14th, which is also the day of graduation rehearsal.
Graduation rehearsal will be held on Tuesday, May 14th at 11:30 AM in the gymnasium. It is mandatory and there will be important updates announced at this time.
There will be a photography company, Empire Photography, present at the graduation ceremony taking various pictures as well as an individual photo when your student exits the stage. These photos will be available for purchase through the company. I will be providing Empire Photography with your contact information from Infinite Campus so that they can reach out to you with purchasing options. Please contact the main office to ensure your contact information is up to date. If you DO NOT want to be contacted, please leave a voicemail at 414-212-2464 with your student’s name and that you would like to opt out.
There will be a slideshow playing continuously prior to the start of graduation on the Jumbotron. If you would like to submit a graduation and/or baby picture of your student to be included in the slideshow, please email it to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org as a JPG file by April 1st.
