On Wednesday, April 26th, all Seniors will be going to the Library with their English class, as a one-stop shop for many of their senior activities and to celebrate. We would appreciate your help in making sure they’re able to make it. They should be coming home with their cap and gown, graduation announcements, and anything else you ordered. They could also wear or bring something connected to their further plans. Activities include:
- Senior video recording
- Cap and Gown Pick Up
- Senior Exit Survey
- Window Signing and Social Media Photo Booth
**If you were unable to attend Cap & Gown Distribution, your gowns are available to pick up in the Wisconsin Neighborhood Office.
The Honors Convocation is an event that serves two main purposes. The first is to celebrate our seniors receiving scholarships awarded through Memorial High School. Memorial is fortunate that a variety of state and local organizations give annual financial scholarship awards to graduating seniors. Each agency or organization sets the criteria to be met. The criteria varies widely but most often relates to grade point average, service to school or community, leadership, character, participation in extracurricular activities, or some combination of the above. The Memorial Scholarship Committee uses the set criteria to determine which students will receive each scholarship.
The other main purpose is to award honor cords to those seniors graduating with Honors or High Honors. Graduating seniors can attain this status if their seventh semester cumulative grade point average is 3.5-3.79 for Honors or 3.8-4.0 for High Honors. Transfer students are eligible only if letter grades (A-B-C-D-F scale) were posted in each year of high school, grade nine through semester one of grade twelve. Seniors graduating with Honor or High Honors will wear gold cords during the graduation ceremony. Distinctions between Honors and High Honors will be listed in the graduation program and at the Honors Convocation.
Seniors earning scholarships or honor cords will receive invitations to the Honors Convocation in May.
**If you were unable to attend the Honors Convocation, cords and certificates are available to pick up in the Wisconsin Neighborhood Office.
