Dear Senior Parents,

It is hard to believe that “Senior Year” is here! Please use this information as a guide to make this year wonderful and stress free.  We will give seniors several deadlines throughout the year, but wanted to share information with you as well. If you have any questions, we have included contact information for each event. We want this year to be a memory you and your child will cherish! We will keep you updated on any changes to the schedule below.

Senior Cap/Gown & Announcement Orders:  

Jostens will be on campus at October 11th for a senior meeting to discuss Cap/Gown orders. They will return on October 18 & 19 during all lunches to take orders.

To participate in the V.R. Eaton High School Commencement Ceremony, students are required to wear matching regalia, including cap, gown, stole, and tassel in school chosen colors. These items can be purchased from Jostens for approximately $65.00 (price subject to change based on the prices and deadlines set by Jostens). Other items are also available for purchase, but not necessary. If you have not ordered, please contact Jostens online at or by phone at 1-800-JOSTENS (567-8367). Questions regarding ordering can be sent to: 

We want to celebrate you and your accomplishments!

As you begin receiving college acceptances and scholarship offers, please bring a copy of your letters to Mrs. Elifrits in the Counseling Center. You may also email a copy to This is for all colleges/scholarships, not just the ones you accept. Also, if you are planning to join the military, please stop by and let us know which branch and your recruiter's name. Those who do not submit will be left out of the awards program.  (Contact: Student’s Counselor)
