Can You Help Plan the IB Senior Celebration Graduation Event?

Graduating SPHS IB seniors participate in two graduation events in May:  The schoolwide graduation procession, and the IB Senior Celebration.  The Senior Celebration is an extensively-planned banquet that honors the graduating seniors.  It typically is held in the historic Coliseum and includes awards, skits, speeches,  and music.  Our faculty and staff and families and guests of the seniors attend.  Past pictures of the decorated venue are included below.

The IB Senior Celebration Committee invites parents of Underclassmen, Juniors, and Seniors to join us in planning the Senior Celebration.  We meet once per month to party plan the event. (more…)
