Prom/Grand March

Grand March Tickets

Attention parents: the start time for Grand March is 6:00 p.m.  You will notice when you get your tickets that the start time was incorrectly printed to say 6:30 p.m.  Sorry for the confusion.  

Each student who has registered to attend prom will receive 3 tickets to grand march. There will be no other tickets available. No one will be admitted to watch without a ticket. 

The red tickets will be for the high school gym and the blue tickets will be for the middle school gym. Regardless of which gym your family watches from, they will see all participants since everyone will be introduced as they march through each gym.

There is a $1.00 fee to watch grand march. This will be collected at the door on the night of grand march.  

Grand march will be live-streamed on the district Facebook page. 

Senior Countdown!

Counting down the days!

Congratulations, Mr. Pastor!

Congratulations to Mr. Pastor for being named the WKEE 100 Teacher of the Month!
