If a senior is absent for an exam because of a doctor-verified medical excuse, make-up privileges will be allowed at the convenience of the teacher.

There is no limit to the number of people who may attend from each family, but seating is first-come first-choice. Families cannot reserve a block of seats by post-ing signs or by sending few members of the family early to save seats. The only way to reserve a seat is for a person to be sitting in it. If a family wants to sit to-gether, they should all arrive early.

Absolutely NO helium or other balloons, glitter, confetti, string, streamers, or the like is allowed inside Landmark Church. Please treat the space and the cere-mony with dignity and respect it deserves.

Graduation Attire

Seniors should select graduation attire that fits the dignity and solemnity of the graduation ceremony. Jeans, t-shirts, and gym or beach shoes are not appropriate for this occasion. No lettering of any kind should be displayed on caps or gowns.

Senior Girls

Tradition suggests a white dress and white shoes. Other appropriate options are white or light-colored skirts, capris, or dressy pants. All clothing should be light-colored, as not to show through the yellow gown, and should not show above the neckline of the graduation gown. White or light-colored shoes should be selected with safety in mind; graduates must climb up and down stairs. Extremely high heels or backless shoes should be avoided for these reasons. Hairstyles should be selected to work with the fit of a graduation cap.

Senior Boys

Senior boys should wear a dress shirt, tie, dark pants, and dark dress shoes.

Graduation pictures

Arch Cunningham will be taking the Class of 2015 graduation group picture as well as individual pictures of each senior as she/he is receiving the diploma. He can be reached at 349-3224, through email at, or through his website at

A video of the ceremony will also be available for purchase. Order forms for both the photographs and the video will be available at the senior breakfast, awards as-sembly, graduation practice, and at the ceremony itself.
