***Tickets are not required for the ceremony***

As East seniors, staff and administrators plan for the 2017 graduation ceremony and additional senior activities, students and their families are encouraged to watch for important announcements throughout the upcoming months.  Information will be shared on the East website and in future parent newsletters. 

Midwest Scholastic—Graduation Attire
East High School has selected Midwest Scholastic as their supplier for all graduation products. All students who plan to participate in the graduation ceremony are required to wear a purple cap, purple gown, gold stole and purple and gold tassel.  Students and families who have yet to purchase their graduation items should order directly from Midwest Scholastic either online (http://www.mwscholastic.com) or via paper order form which can be picked up in Office 1027, Student Services (room 2031) as well as the Main Office (room 1037).

Students may use caps or gowns from 2016 Alum as these gowns were purchased from Midwest Scholastic.  Jostens caps and gowns (used previously to 2016) may not be used.

Students who are enrolled in an alternative program and who plan to participate in the East graduation ceremony should contact Sherry Barnsley at 204-1638 or cbarnsley@madison.k12.wi.us. 

Dress Code for Graduation Ceremony
Students who choose to participate in the graduation ceremony are expected to dress appropriately for the event.  Students who are not properly dressed will not be allowed to participate.  Denim jeans of any color are not allowed to be worn.  Additionally, tennis shoes and sandals (flip-flops) are not permitted.  Students who may have difficulty obtaining dress clotes should talk to the senior principal, 1027 or Main Office staff as dress clothes and shoes are available to students to borrow. 

Fees and Obligations
Please be sure to resolve all obligations and watch for Fee Statements throughout the spring semester.  All fees and obligations must be resolved or students will not receive their diploma.  All books, rented calculators, and sports uniforms should be returned to avoid unnecessary fees.
