Attention all seniors! Graduation may be a few months away, but time flies. It’s time to get ready for that once-in-a-lifetime moment.

This Thursday on Oct. 17, employees from Royal-T/Herff Jones will be in the commons during both lunches to take orders for graduation cap and gowns. They will also be ordering graduation announcements. The cap, gown, and tassel is $36.95 (plus $10 for shipping). To order a cap and gown, fill out section three of the order form that was given at the senior meeting.

There are two ordering options to receive the following items on the order taking days at school: placing an order online and bring a printed copy of the receipt to order taking days to pick up items or filling out the order form at home and bringing it to the employees from Royal-T this thursday.

The Graduation Packages include items that you can take home early such as a 2014 senior t-shirt, a 2014 senior hoodie, a 2014 lanyard, souvenir tassel, bling tassel, 14 keyring, and a 14 mini ring. To order the Graduation Package, a $60 down payment is required at the time of order. The remaining balance can be paid online at highschool.herffjones.com or sending a check to Royal-T/Herff Jones, PO Box 820550, Vancouver, WA 98682. Senior rings are also being sold! For more information, please check the flyer.

The order must be received by Dec. 6, 2013. Orders received after that time will be charged late charges. All final payments must be received by March 1, 2014. For much more information, please read the full flyer that was handed earlier this month.

All of this may seem stressful but with an order form ready and a payment in hand by tomorrow, all the stress will go away. It is better to have an order ready and a payment paid instead of leaving it last minute. Graduation may be eight months away, but 2014 is just around the corner.
