    SENIOR DUES--DUE NOVEMBER 4, 2022 

    All Class of 2023 Seniors have been invoiced for their Senior Dues via My School Bucks. This was in response to our students' requests to have the option to pay a little at a time (or all at once) over the summer.  Senior Dues are $100.00 and cover the cost of your cap, gown, tassel, yearbook, senior t-shirt, certain senior week activities, and expenses related to graduation (like your graduation tickets). Senior Dues must be paid via myschoolbucks.com. Once you create an account and add the name of your senior, you will find your senior dues invoice highlighted in red in your account. You can also click on the Invoices store (look for the tree image).  

    Can't find your dues invoice? Be sure that you are added as a student to the MSB account!


    Cap/Gown and Diploma Verification Form-- OVERDUE September 30, 2022

    Believe it or not, it's time to order your Cap, Gown, and Diploma!  All seniors must complete the Cap/Gown and Diploma Verification Form  so that we have your correct measurements. We also need you to verify that your name is spelled fully and correctly in our records. Your diploma is a legal document and spelling counts!
