SENIOR DINNER EXPECTATIONS

Serving procedures. To reduce the amount of waiting time all students are expected to:
  • Quickly choose their food and serve a minimal amount of each item when your table is called to go up.
  • Students may return for additional food once everyone has gone through the line once.
Students are expected to:
  • Most people like to dress up for the event, as it is semi-formal but you must still wear clothing that meets school dress code and standards. Follow all school guidelines regarding behavior and language. Stay within the boundaries assigned by the chaperones (students may NOT leave the designated event areas OR go to their cars and come back). Be attentive and display appropriate behavior during the dinner, presentations and entertainment.
 
Senior Memories Slideshow Photo Requirements Deadline: May 27th, 2019

MAXIMUM 3-5 images per person will be used so no one/group dominates the slide show.

Identify who is in the picture:
Include names of all individuals in each picture by either including the names in the file name, or including a list in the email or an attached word document that identifies everyone in each picture you’re submitting. This is really important for large group shots and those awesome baby pictures because we don't know everyone, and we can't always tell who you are in your adorable bumble bee or teenage mutant ninja turtle costume.

We will NOT accept original photos. Scan them, get them scanned and send them in. 

Email Slideshow pictures to: BlaineK@monroe.wednet.edu
