Planning is underway for Class of 2019 commencement, all-night grad party

A letter from Assistant Principal Mike Amsden:

Oct. 2018

Dear Parent or  Guardian,

Plans are well underway for the Class of 2019 commencement exercise and the All-Night Graduation Party. The graduation  ceremony will be held at 7 p.m. on the night of June 28,  2019. The All-Night Graduation Party will begin that evening at  10:30 p.m. Additional  information  and details will be mailed  home in the  spring.

Cap and gown orders and measurements will be taken Nov. 26, 27 and 28 by a Herff-Jones representative. Seniors should listen to the announcements carefully and be prepared  to be measured  on the days he is here. You may also consult the district website – https://www.pinebushschools. org – for information on this and other senior class activities.

For your convenience, you can write a single check in the amount of $60 to cover the cost of the cap and gown as well as other graduation activities and events. Checks should be made payable to the Pine Bush High School Senior Class and handed in when measured for the  cap and gown. In the event that a student does not graduate in June, the cap and gown will be  needed for the graduation ceremony in August, and August graduates may still attend the graduation party  in June.

The All-Night Graduation Party is a parent run and funded event to provide a safe, drug and alcohol free venue for celebrating graduation. Parents have already begun working, however, additional support is welcomed and needed. If you can lend a hand or provide any support, please call or text Mary DuBois at (845) 978-9043.

As more details related to graduation and senior activities are confirmed, they will be relayed to you and your child. As always, if you have any questions or concerns regarding this or anything else, please do not hesitate to call.
