Everything Seniors Need to Know About Graduation
Principal Rowley's advice to seniors is that "there are two things in life you can control: your attitude and your effort."
Seniors! Only 23 days until graduation! Let’s get ready.
The graduation ceremony will be held at the Jon M. Huntsman Center at the University of Utah on Wednesday, May 25th at 10:00 am. Students and families need to arrive early, and guests must be seated by 9:45 am. Admin says that “due to ample seating, tickets will not be required” this year.
It’s important that students have everything in order before May 19th to avoid any last-minute issues. These unresolved issues could be credit for online classes, parking tickets, class fees, or class retakes. To clear up any issues or questions, students can visit the counseling center anytime before or after school, or during lunch but not during class. If students don’t get everything resolved before May 19th, they will still graduate but will lose their opportunity to walk in the ceremony.
If students did not get their cap/gown on Tuesday the 26th, they can pick them up in the main office. Students must return their gowns directly after the ceremony in order to receive their diplomas.
We will be honored to hear speeches from Merrin Maughan, Dani Gibson, and James Tillotson.
Graduation rehearsal will be held on Tuesday, May 24th at 8:30 am in Alta’s Auditorium and attendance is mandatory. Following the rehearsal, Alta will hold yearbook signing day.
“The school does not sponsor any after graduation parties,” Admin said. “However, the Pepperwood Community plans an after graduation party.”
“I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about my advice to seniors,” Principal Rowley stated. His advice is that “there are two things in life you can control: your attitude and your effort.”
He then continues, “going forward in your life after graduating high school, just remember that the journey has as much value to it as the goal does.”
