Senior Baccalaureate

What is “Baccalaureate”?

Baccalaureate is a celebration of the Class of 2018 and will be held on Monday, June 11th from 5:30-7:00 p.m. in the auditorium.  There will be a reception in the band room with punch and finger foods immediately following the celebration.  Although it is an optional graduation activity, it is a very memorable part of the graduation process, and we would love to have our Tucker grads attend.  Baccalaureate also happens to be THE BEST PHOTO OP for you and your fellow grads, in your caps & gowns, as it is nearly impossible to get candid photos of you and your friends at the Siegel Center.  Come support Ms. Selden, Ms. Knapp, Sgt. Major Cauley, Ms. Finch, and Officer O’Keefe, who will be speaking to our graduates about life choices.  We hope to see you there!

If you missed the senior parent meeting, the information is posted on our school web site and can be accessed at the “Seniors: Class of 2018” link on the right of the home page.  Just click on “Announcements” once you are there!
