Cap & Gown

SENIORS, Herff Jones will be back Tuesday, May 15th during ALL LUNCH PERIODS for Cap & Gown delivery and Grad Announcement re-delivery.

Cap & Gown can only be ordered through
Herff Jones online or by calling them at 770-795-1626.

Even if you are unsure if you will graduate, order anyway because if you don't, they will give you a full refund!


Saturday, March 17th


Baccalaureate is a ceremony that will be in May (Tuesday, May 22nd) at Eastside Baptist Church. All Seniors and their Families are invited to be at the 7pm ceremony. There is no limit to the number of family members each senior can bring, but please RSVP so the planning committee is prepared for how many will attend. Bring your RSVP to Admin 1 (front office).

Seniors will need to arrive at Eastside Baptist at 5:00pm that day, ready to stay until the ceremony is finished. You will wear your graduation gown, not the cap.

There will be a simple reception in the church Fellowship Hall immediately after the ceremony.

There is a religious element/tradition to this ceremony, therefore it is not a school function. It is completely separate from Graduation and is run by parent volunteers and funded by senior family donations.


Graduation Practices are Monday, May 21 & Tuesday, May 22! You must attend practices to participate in the Graduation Ceremony!!

Each day meet at 8:30am in the Cafeteria!
If you are receiving an Honor Cord then you must pay $4 cash only (exact change) to Ms. Hunt at practice.

Graduation will take place in the Wheeler Arena, Wednesday, May 23rd at 6:30 pm.

Please read the
Graduation 2018 Student Parent Information Packet for all information for Senior final exams, rehearsals, as well as the ceremony.

Graduation Tickets Policy

Wheeler's process for distributing graduation tickets is as follows:

Each student will receive an automatic 2 tickets for graduation.  Students were able to request additional tickets from October 1, 2017 through April 1, 2018.  We cannot guarantee that students will receive the full number of tickets requested, but we will do our best to get each student as close to their requested number as possible.  Ticket numbers will be made available to students in Homeroom after Spring Break.  Please note that all tickets will be distributed on the last day of graduation practice.

Additionally, per Wheeler policy, students will not receive more than 4 tickets if they fall in any one of the following three categories:

1. Students who have received any OSS during the 2017-2018 school year.

2. Students who have more than 15 unexcused tardies during the 2017-2018 school year.

3. Students who have any outstanding fines, including media center fines, book fines, and parking fines

Diploma Distribution Policy

Diplomas will be available for pickup after Graduation on the Football Field. The cafeteria will be used in case of rain.  In order to receive their diplomas, students must turn in their graduation gown.  They keep their hats and tassels.  Additionally, students will be required to complete community service hours on Wheeler's campus prior to receiving their diploma if they fall in one of the following categories:

1. Students who miss any practice, are late to any practice, or leave early from any graduation practice.

2. Students who conduct themselves in any way during the Graduation Ceremony that is not consistent with the distinguished nature of the program.
