Seniors should arrive in their caps and gowns at 1:00 p.m. in the Owatonna Curling Club building, which is next to the Four Seasons building.
As students become weary of their time in school, there may still be some penalties that have not been taken care of. It is very important to resolve these issues, especially for the graduating class. Unserved detentions, unpaid fines and other miscellaneous items must be taken care of before seniors can walk.
As the end of the school year approaches quickly, seniors have a lot on their plate. However, it important to take a few moments and savor the remaining time.
