Gaither students have entered the second semester of the school year, which means there are a variety of upcoming events and deadlines for seniors. 

Grad Bash 2020 and Prom

Although prom and Grad Bash 2020 are far away on the calendar, due dates for forms and ticket sales have started early this year. 

“Grad Bash is a special event for seniors only, where Universal Studios locks down the parks to the public and students have free reign of both parks and entertainment,” senior class sponsor Teresa Trumbach said.

Grad Bash tickets will start to sell on Jan. 23, 24, 28 and 29 only for $125

Gaither’s senior prom permission forms are available to grab and are located on The Rack. The Rack is located on the left side of the cafeteria closest to the elevator.

Senior prom forms must be turned into Teresa Trumbach, senior class sponsor, in room 213 by Feb. 25 at 3:30 p.m. Prom ticket sales will start on March 10-12 starting at $50. Ticket price will increase in every week.

Seniors are encouraged see Denise Acosta or Pamelyn Foreid in the main office to check the debt list with prior to ticket sales weeks. On Jan. 24, a table will be set up during lunches for seniors to check if they have debts.

Caps and Gowns

According to Trumbach, only a third of the senior class has ordered their cap and gown. Students must order the basic grad package if they want to participate in the commencement ceremony.  

Students are not allowed to wear gowns worn by former graduates.

Caps and gowns can be purchased at
