    MEETINGS:
    The next virtual meeting for Biology Club-The Envirothon Team will be TODAY Friday, January 22, 2021, at 12:00 pm. The Google Meet nickname for this meeting is: envirothon.

    CLASS OF 2021 – IT’S TIME TO ORDER YOUR CAP AND GOWN!
    It’s time to order your caps/gowns and graduation supplies!  Ordering packets are available for pickup at the high school Monday through Friday from 7:00 am – 2:30 pm. 

    Please pay very close attention to the following details and deadlines:

    • With the expected issues due to the pandemic, the company is advising that orders be placed early to avoid any potential production or delivery issues that their plant may experience if they have to shut down again this year to 25% capacity.
    • Every senior who plans on participating in the graduation ceremony must wear a cap and gown in the correct color - white for females and the new purple for males.  If you plan on borrowing a gown from a sibling or friend, please bring it in to make sure that the colors match.  Since we just changed vendors last year the only gowns you may borrow would be from someone who graduated last year.
    • Orders should be placed online at www.northwaygrad.com.
    • Orders must be placed by 1/29/21 to receive the current promotions/pricing.  You’ll need the forms/flyers from the packet to place your online order and you may contact the high school main office if you haven't received them.
