Parents, Friends, Guardians and Graduating Students - It's time to start thinking about Secondary Options' Graduation! The commencement this year will take place Monday, June 13th, in the Performing Arts Center, at the south side of Black Hills High School, located at 7741 Littlerock Road. We are asking seniors to arrive no later than 6:15 PM, so the ceremony will start promptly at 7:00 PM. This ceremony is open to all that want to attend, and we encourage you to invite and bring as many friends and family members as you want to celebrate this event. Secondary Options does not order or sell invitations, but we will be more than happy to help students design their own. Kinko’s also can be helpful with this. All graduating seniors must meet the following requirements before a student is permitted by district rules to be involved in graduation exercises. They must earn 22 specific credits, 30 hours of community service, pass state exams in reading, writing, science, and algebra or geometry as well as complete an exit interview. If students or parents have questions about these requirements, please call me, and we can either discuss it on the phone or arrange a time to meet. Un-returned books or fines will not prevent one from participating, but it will hold up the actual delivery of the diploma. Seniors should remember to purchase and pick up their cap and gowns at Secondary Options. The price of the cap and gowns are $30.00, and they will arrive the first week in May. If you have any questions, contact Debbie Center at 709-7760. After the commencement, there will be a short reception across the courtyard in the Secondary Options school facility. There will be cake and punch as well as an opportunity for seniors to be photographed with family members, friends and peers. In the past, this has been an event not to be missed, so be sure to set aside Monday, June 13th, 2016 for this special occasion. If you have any questions, please call me at 360-709-7760.
