To place an order for just a cap and gown (because the website is a little tricky to navigate), here is the direct link:Jostens Order Link
The gowns that we are using are different from years’ past, so reusing an old gown will not work, unfortunately. This year’s gowns are eco-friendly and made with biodegradable capability.

PPS GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS:
PLEASE VERIFY AS THESE REQUIREMENTS MAY HAVE CHANGED DUE TO COVID-19
In addition to meeting the credit requirements, PPS students demonstrate proficiency in three Essential Skills: Reading, Writing and Mathematics. The primary manner to demonstrate any Essential Skills is to meet, in the specified area, on the Smarter Balanced Assessment. If students are not able to meet through this option, then they can demonstrate their proficiency for an Essential Skill by completing an alternative assessment or work sample. PPS graduates also complete three Personalized Learning Diploma Requirements (PLRs):
The Resume and My Plan are assignments in Senior English, but you can complete your CRLE Reflection any time after you complete a job shadow, internship, career-related field trip, etc.
A Career Related Learning Experience can offer you a unique topic for a college essay for scholarship interview too. Exploring your interests and career options can also help you determine your next steps after high school. See Career Coordinator Shannan Fasold in the Counseling about job shadowing, career day events and volunteering. She has career assessments and college research tools for students too.
Graduation Ceremony Prep:
Graduation is an exciting time and students and families eagerly look forward to the festivities. Please be sure support LHS and your participation in the ceremony by following student handbook policies.
