            Seniors to be honored will receive notification from guidance.  If you receive notification of a scholarship or an award, you need to go by guidance to be sure Mrs. Nesbitt is aware of the scholarship or award.  Even if you think that you might not receive an honor, please be there to support your fellow classmates and to take part in this memorable time.

 

May 23                                     Graduation practice at WFHS - 1:00 p.m.  Practice is mandatory. Seniors

must practice to participate in the graduation exercises.  Remember, this is a privilege

and not a right.  If you choose not to practice, you choose not to march.  No excuses—work is not a valid excuse for missing graduation practice.  Let your employer know you will not be available to work May 23, 2017.  Practice is at 1:00 p.m. until released.  Parents, please help to get your senior here for this important time.

Graduation speeches will be rehearsed immediately following practice. If you do not rehearse your speech at this time, you forfeit your place in the program. Parents, please

reinforce this with your student.

 

Seniors who miss more than 15 minutes of this practice either by coming late or leaving early will pick up diplomas the Monday following graduation.

Graduation!!!

May 26, 2017 at 2:30 p.m.

Pensacola Bay Center

(Formerly Pensacola Civic Center)

All graduates must be attired in caps and gowns to participate in Commencement.  The mortarboard should be worn “square” on the forehead, not tilted on the back of the head.  Please try on the cap as soon as you get it to make sure that it is the right size.  A neat tacking with needle and thread will prevent a lot of slipping and sliding and attaching with bobby pins at the last minute.

 

Young men should wear dress collared white shirts, dark tie, dark slacks, dark shoes and socks under their gowns.  Neither sandals nor tennis shoes are acceptable.  Girls should wear dresses that are not longer than their own gowns and dark dress shoes.  No corsages, flowers, hair ornaments, or jewelry may be worn on top of the cap and gown at Commencement.  No gum or sunglasses.  Flowers may not be carried by the graduates.

 

No attire other than school designated will be allowed.  Please do not attempt to wear something from an off-campus club, society, organization, etc… Any senior who attempts to wear unauthorized articles will be pulled from the graduation line and will not be allowed to “walk” unless the situation is rectified.  This is a district-level, backed policy for all schools.

 

AFTER THE CEREMONY—Seniors will proceed to the tables located alphabetically around the floor of the Civic Center where teachers will collect the gowns.  Each senior will be given his/her diploma when returning his/her gown.  Do not forget that all you receive on stage is the diploma cover.  Remember, those who have not practiced the full mandatory graduation practice will pick up their diplomas from the principal on Monday following graduation.
