Dear Crater Seniors and Families,
Congratulations class of 2020! We are less than a month away from your graduation, and we’re excited to celebrate the accomplishments and contributions you have made throughout the years.
Lawn Signs: Beginning Friday, May 8, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
An individualized lawn sign has been designed for every senior with their photo, name, and school logo. You might have already seen the video of them displayed on the football field! Beginning Friday, May 8th, these will be displayed on the lawn in front of the PAC for families to see and to retrieve between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. If you’re unable to get your sign at that time, you may pick them up at your school’s office beginning Monday, May 11th at 9:00 a.m.
Caps and Gowns / Graduation Pictures: May 18-22
During the week of May 18th-22nd, seniors and their families (up to 4 family members) will schedule a time to come to the Crater Campus in their cap, gown and cord to get a picture on the stage with their diploma. These pictures will be used in the graduation ceremony on June 3rd. The pictures will be taken by a professional photographer, and each senior will receive one complimentary photo. Additional photos will be available for purchase through the vendor. Each small school will arrange for families to schedule times for seniors to be at Dutch Meyer Field for their photo. Please be looking for this ParentSquare post over the next couple of days. It is important that you are on time and follow instructions when you are here. We are on a tight time schedule and we’re required to implement social distancing and best practices to ensure the safety of students, families, and staff.
Central Point Graduate Parade: June 3rd, 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Each senior will be allowed to have one car in the parade and will need to remain in their car during this event. Seniors need to identify a family member who will drive the vehicle in the parade so seniors can give their attention to the spectators. Seniors will need to gather at the designated spots at 6:00 pm on June 3rd. BIS will congregate in the Student Parking lot near the stadium and softball fields. CAHPS will congregate off HWY 99, near the CAHPS office and science building. CRA will congregate in the student parking lot in front of the PAC. The parade will end at 7:30 pm to ensure all families have time to get home to watch the graduation ceremony. If any senior/family is having difficulty accessing a vehicle for the parade, please reach out to your main office–we have options for you.
Graduation Ceremony: Wednesday, June 3rd, 8:00 pm
At 8:00 pm on June 3rd, the graduation ceremony will begin. This will include a live broadcast from Dutch Meyer Field at Crater Campus. The ceremony will open with live speeches from the superintendent, principals, school board representative, and our valedictorians–the audience and graduates will watch this ceremony from home. After the live portion of the ceremony, there will be a slide show featuring a picture of each senior in their cap and gown on the stage. This slide show will last approximately 35 minutes. If any family does not have reliable internet connectivity or a device to watch it on, please notify your main office so we can find a way to ensure you get to watch the ceremony. The ceremony will be broadcast on Table Rock Sports. Your diploma will be mailed home on Thursday, June 4th.
We are so excited to be celebrating the Crater Class of 2020! If you have any questions, contact your school’s main office.
