The seniors’ final week before graduation started on June 4, with the senior prom at Wequasset Resort and Golf Club. Promenade was held at the school at 4:15 pm for pictures. Students left the school after promenade in limos, party buses and other transportation methods and headed to Harwich, the location of Wequassett Resort. Doors opened for the prom at 6:30 pm. Latecomers were not allowed in.
The dance ended officially at 10:30 pm. Dinner was served at the resort, with each student getting a choice of a chicken dinner, a steak dinner or a vegetarian option.
Seniors had Wednesday off. The events continued on June 6 with a graduation rehearsal in the morning from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.
Later that night, seniors met in the gym at 6:00 pm with their graduation gowns (no caps) for Senior Awards Night. This event is mandatory. Parents and family members were encouraged to attend.
June 7 is Senior Assembly. Seniors must arrive at the gym with their gowns by 8:30 am. The assembly will officially begin at 9:15 am and end at 10:38 am. Proper footwear should be worn for the seniors to perform their ceremonial graduation lap around the gym.
After the assembly, seniors will report to the field (weather depending) for their Senior Cookout and yearbook signing.
