As senior year come to a close, the graduates of the Class of 2012 are beginning to prepare for the busy month ahead. With a list of events coming up, the seniors need to keep a close eye on their hectic schedules.

On Tuesday, May 22, at 6:00 pm in the Robert J. Nagle Auditorium, seniors of the National Honor Society are being corded. Each senior picks a sponsor to cord them on the stage as a farewell to the club. So seniors, don’t forget to pick your sponsor and give their name to Ms.Nielson.

On Tuesday, May 29, at 7:00 pm in the Durfee auditorium, chosen seniors will be given awards to end their senior year. Invitations were sent home to those being awarded. Don’t forget to return your invitation with your number of guests attending to the senior office.

June 1st is the busiest day for the graduates. From 9 to 11 am in the auditorium, the class of 2012 will be “checking out” of Durfee on Senior Check Out Day. Here, students will receive their caps and gowns, medical records, and graduation tickets. Each senior is allowed only five tickets for graduation, so pick your guests wisely. Also, make sure all debt is resolved by this day, including books, uniforms, etc. Seniors can check in with their grade office to see if they owe anything. This is also the day of Senior Prom. From 6:30 to 11:30 pm the seniors will be celebrating at Whites of Westport. Following this event filled day is After Prom, held in the Luke Urban Field House from 12:00 midnight to 5:00 am. The party continues celebrating 20 years of After Prom with a 1920s style ‘The Big Apple,’ New York theme.

On June 7, from 4:00 to 7:00 pm seniors will gather in the cafeteria for Class Day. The graduates will enjoy a cookout as they receive their 100th Anniversary Edition of the Record Book. This is also the same night of graduation rehearsal.

The big day has finally arrived. On June 8, the top ten of the Class of 2012 will enjoy a celebratory breakfast in the Trade Winds restaurant, and finally, at 7:00 pm, graduation begins. As the graduates gather in the field house, with their closest friends and family, the Class of 2012 makes history as the 125th graduating class of Durfee.
