Senior Breakfast

Senior Breakfast8:30 a.m. – Friday, May 18, 2018 – Golden Corral (on 9th Avenue)

Any senior who has paid their senior dues will be allowed to attend Senior Breakfast.  You will be given a ticket to present at the front door of the restaurant.  If you lose your ticket, it will not be replaced.  If you need transportation to and from breakfast, please arrive at school no later 7:45 a.m.  The bus will leave promptly at 8:00 a.m. from the front of the school.  You must make prior arrangements for pickup upon returning to school.  You will not be allowed to enter the school building for any reason.  If you ride the bus, you must ride the bus back to PFHS. 

  • Only PFHS seniors are allowed to attend Senior Breakfast.  No parents, friends, cousins, children, etc… are allowed to attend. 
  • Cap & Gowns will be distributed at Senior Breakfast.  Cap & Gowns will be distributed when Mr. Roby gives the okay.  They will not be distributed to individuals early.  You must wait for your group to be called.  Do not loiter in the area where distribution is taking place.  This only prolongs the process.
  • If you are unsure of your graduation status, do not open your bag.  You can return your unopened bag to Herff Jones for a refund (minus late fees and shipping charges). 
  • Any senior who does not attend breakfast may pick up their cap & gown in the A La Carte line (in the commons) from 11:15 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.  Mr. Roby will not be responsible for taking any caps & gowns to the Bay Center.  Please make arrangements for pick up.  You will not be allowed to enter Golden Corral to pick up your cap & gown without a breakfast ticket.
  • Bring your yearbook.  This is a great time to get all of those signatures you missed at school.  Make sure that your name is clearly marked on the book’s edge.

When do we wear our Cap & Gown?

All seniors will be required to wear their cap & gown at Baccalaureate, Senior Honors Night, and Graduation. 

You will not wear your cap & gown to graduation practice

Try your gown on the day that you receive it.  Your gown length should be mid-calf.  If your gown does not fit, or has rips or stains, please take it to Herff Jones on 12th Avenue and get a replacement. 

  • *Females have a detachable collar on their gown.  You should safety pin your collar to your gown before arriving at PFHS on graduation day.  Although stickers are provided, they seldom work to hold the collar in place.
  • *Mortarboards must be worn flat on the head.  This will not accommodate some hair styles, so plan accordingly.  Do not pin your cap to the back of your head.  The front of your cap should cover a portion of your forehead.  You will not be allowed to put any messages or decorations on the top of your cap. 
  • *Tassels are worn on the right until you are pronounced a graduate.  The superintendent will advise you when you may turn it to the left. 
  • *You will be allowed to keep your cap and tassel, but your gown must be returned immediately following graduation.    Plan on taking all pictures BEFORE the graduation ceremony.  You will not be allowed to take your gown out of the Bay Center.
  • ** Just a suggestion – keep a grocery bag and hanger with you at all times.  You will want to keep your gown hung up, so that it does not wrinkle.  Keep your cap and tassel  in your bag to prevent losing them.  Place the bag handles around the hook of the hanger to keep everything together. 

Baccalaureate

Monday, May 21, 2018 – 6:00p.m. – Calvary Baptist Church

WEAR CAP & GOWN

Baccalaureate is a nondenominational religious service for interested graduates and their families.  This is an optional ceremony, so please discuss your desire to attend or not with your parents.  For those attending:

  • Arrive at the church no later than 5:30 p.m.  Report to the building directly to the right of the sanctuary.
  • Wear your cap and gown.  Seniors without their cap and gown will not be allowed to walk in the processional.
  • Take pictures after the service.
  • The processional will line up at 5:45 p.m. Seniors who are late will not be a part of the processional.
  • You may sit with friends of your choice.  They will need to be lined up in front of or behind you, not to the side of you.
  • Remember to turn off your cell phone or leave it in the car.  You may not have anything in your hands as you walk in the processional.
  • Girls will not be able to carry a purse in the processional.
  • Remember, this is a religious ceremony.  You should be on your best behavior. We know that you will show your families the greatness of this graduating class!!

Senior Honors Night

Graduation Practice

Graduation PracticeWednesday, May 23, 2018 – 1:00 p.m. – PFHS Gym

Graduation practice is MANDATORY!

Failure to attend graduation practice will result in your inability to participate in the graduation ceremony.  Every graduate will be assigned a specific chair at graduation practice, and there will be no changes in those assignments at the graduation ceremony.

  • So… set three alarms and have a friend call you to wake you up.  Start your car and kick the tires the night before.  We will not accept any excuses!
  • Failure to arrive on time will have the same result as failure to attend.  So… it is better to be early than even 1 minute late. 
  • You should arrive at school no later than 1:00 p.m.  Report to the commons and find your homeroom as posted.  Report to that homeroom and follow the directions of your name caller.
  • Mrs. Johnson will begin the commencement practice promptly at 1:30 p.m.  The homeroom doors will then be locked and no one will be allowed to enter practice until it is over. 
  • It is recommended that you wear your graduation shoes to practice.  You will not wear your cap & gown.  Your gown should be hanging at home in order to ensure there are no wrinkles in it at graduation.
  • Parents are not allowed to attend graduation practice.  They may return to school to pick you up at 3:00 p.m. or they may wait for you in the parking lot. 
  • Do not move any of the chairs in the gym.  They have been arranged specifically to accommodate the set up at the Bay Center. 
  • You will receive a Grad Images card at practice.  In order to receive your graduation photos taken by Grad Images, you must complete this card and return it to your name caller.
