Important Information for Seniors!

Please order your cap and gown from Jostens ASAP. You can order online, simply go to jostens.com where you can order a cap and gown package for $29.00. To be clear - the $29 cap and gown package DOES include a tassel and you do NOT need to order an additional tassel (unless you want a specialty one). A direct link to the cap and gown order page is here. Please order your cap and gown no later than November 19th, 2019. 

If you would like to borrow a cap and gown from a previous West G grad that is approximately the same size as you, you may do so. Please note that ALL gowns will be navy blue this year. If you are going to borrow a cap and gown, please let me know by the cap and gown order deadline, November 19th. You also will want to purchase a tassel since the tassels are unique to each class. You can do so here.

Each student will receive 6 (six) free general admission tickets for graduation this year. If you need extra general admission tickets, they are $5 per ticket. If you or your family are interested in purchasing VIP reserved seating loge box tickets, they are $25 per seat or $150 for a full box of 8 seats.

By Valerie Angie, Staff Writer

While keeping kids “happy” is always a concern, at the end of the day, in education, just like any other activity, it’s the results that matter. Based on that assessment, the CPM method of teaching math has proved itself to be lucrative.
