Dear Seniors and Parents,

Just prior to our Spring Break we began Quarter 4, the last quarter at Westview for all our graduating seniors. I know it is hard to believe but graduation day is only two months away. This special ceremony is one that all Westview graduates and their families will remember for the rest of their lives, and we want to ensure that this is an event of which you can be proud.

This year we are planning to recognize over 570 Westview Seniors during our graduation ceremony. Both our staff and students are working hard to organize an event that recognizes the importance of this academic accomplishment. Below you will find a list of expectations we hold for all seniors participating in our graduation ceremony. We believe that these guidelines will help promote an atmosphere of celebration, respect, and honor.

1.    Required dress for women:  Dress, pantsuit, or skirt and blouse appropriate for the occasion; dress shoes.

2.    Required dress for men:  Dress shirt and tie; dress slacks; dark dress shoes.

3.    Graduating seniors may not carry cell phones, cameras, flowers, beach balls, or articles of any kind into the ceremony. 

4.    No adornments are allowed on the graduation gown or cap (i.e. leis, scarves, etc.)

5.    Evidence indicating possession, consumption, or use of any intoxicating agents or the possession or use of any type of explosives will result in immediate removal from the graduation ceremonies.

6.    Pranks, vandalism, or lingering on campus outside of school hours are a violation of school rules.  Entering campus for pranks is trespassing; the damage done is vandalism.  Any participants in such acts will be suspended from school and required to pay restitution for damages.  Anyone involved in such an incident will not be allowed to participate in senior activities nor in the graduation ceremony.

Seniors, I hope you have an understanding of the impact you have made on our community during the four years you spent on our campus, and it has been a true honor working with you these last four years. You have navigated your high school years in a manner which we are very proud, and your accomplishments set a standard of success from which our community will be measured on for years to come. Westview is a better place because of you, and I hope that the lessons you learned here follow you to the next chapter of your life.

It is my hope that the class of 2015 finishes their time at Westview on a strong note, and that we have 100% participation in the graduation ceremony. Whether in class or at the multiple celebratory activities, we hold the expectation that all our students act in a respectful and responsible manner. It is truly heartbreaking to meet with students and parents who will not be able to participate in their graduation ceremony due to failing a class, or having a lapse in judgment over the last few weeks of school. a better place because of you, and I hope that the lessons you learned here follow you to the next chapter of your life.

Please help us to ensure that the final days at Westview for the class of 2015 are a meaningful and positive experience for everyone in our community. ce because of you, and I hope that the lessons you learned here follow you to the next chapter of your life.

Thank you,

Todd Cassen

Principal
