Prom is May 8th at the Sans Souci Ballroom- mark your calendars. Senior fees (which is your Prom ticket and more) will be available in school cash online when everybody returns to school in August. Pay early for the cheapest price. You have until Christmas Break so make partial or monthly payments if necessary.
Don't forget about Project Prom as you return to school. Keep an eye out for information from the parents in charge of Project Prom.
*Most announcements about deadlines and senior information run through your government and economics teachers so listen to them when they are discussing senior information.
JVHS Graduation Date: Saturday, May 30, 2020 @ 12:00 pm
The Senior Sponsors invite you to join Remind to get the latest updates on the fun Senior stuff.
*Online senior fees account will be set up soon for payments. Lowest pricing will be available if payments are made prior to Winter Break.
Senior t-shirts may be purchased by Cash Online accounts. The accounts should be released soon so spread the word to fellow classmates. The deadline for this first batch of shirts is tentatively dated July 16th. We will only do one more batch of shirts after this one so plan ahead to get your senior t-shirt (great for memories). This information will come to you by way of the email account connected with registration. We will attempt to get them to you before the first day of school but with construction, the delivery may be delayed.
