May 8th – 10:00 AM – Seniors for Seniors Parade
Seniors should decorate their cars with Maine West blue and gold celebrating the class of 2021, and they can write cards with positive messages to be delivered to seniors in senior facilities. Seniors should arrive to C-Wing parking lot anytime after 9:00 AM, and the parade will leave at 10:00.
May 18th – 7:00 PM – Honors Night
Honors Night this year will be by invitation. Any senior receiving an award will be invited, and they will be allowed to bring two guests. As a precaution, community presenters will not be present this year, and staff will present the awards.
Cap and Gown Pick Up
Students who would like to receive caps and gowns early may pick them up in the bookstore during regular school hours (7:30 – 3:30) beginning on Wednesday, May 12. Additionally, we now have three options for after-school pick-up in the bus concourse between 3:30 and 5:00 p.m.: Wednesday, May 12; Friday, May 14; and Wednesday, May 19. We encourage early pick-up of caps and gowns, so you have time to let the gown hang and get some of the wrinkles out prior to graduation. In the event that you are not able to pick this up during this time, we will have them available at our mandatory rehearsal on Friday, May 21 at 12:00.
Instructional Material Drop Off and Obligations
You are in the home stretch! Since this is your final full week of high school, as you start to wrap up your classes, you can begin returning school-owned materials (hardcover textbooks, calculators, heart rate monitors, musical instruments, athletic equipment, etc.) to the book store. Items can be returned during the school day or after school between 3:00 pm and 5:30 pm on Wednesday, 5/12, Friday, 5/14, Wednesday, 5/19, and Friday, 5/21.
Senior obligations are due on Friday, May 14, but will continue to be accepted through Friday, May 21. Please see this document for more information: Instructional Material Return | 2021.
Thank you in advance for your assistance in getting your school-owned materials returned in a timely manner. If you have any questions, please email [email protected]. Finish strong seniors!
