Dear Families of the Class of 2020,


We are excited to celebrate the graduation of your child this upcoming month! Our Senior Activities Team has been hard at work planning for a virtual graduation ceremony and senior spirit week. We are committed to giving our graduates and their loved ones a memorable experience to commemorate this milestone moment. Please find below an outline of the upcoming events. As events come up, there will be more specific details announced in the Grade 8 Homeroom Google Classroom and shared with you via the Wagner family email. 


In order to create the best experience possible, we will need cooperation from our students and families. A senior graduation google form has been created and will be shared with our graduates via our Grade 8 Homeroom Google Classroom on Tuesday, May 30th. As a reminder, you can access the Grade 8 Homeroom Google Classroom with the code rf7ixtd. As part of this form, students will be asked to share mailing addresses, personal emails, and phone numbers for your family. This is extremely important for us to gather to be able to share information with your family regarding distribution of graduation items in the fall. We will also be keeping Wagner student Gmail accounts open through next year for the class of 2020.  Thank you for your support with getting this form filled out by your child!


We want to ensure that every graduate is acknowledged during the ceremony. We are planning to post each graduate in their cap and gown photo taken in the fall. If there is no photo on file or you have not given media consent for your child, then just their first and last name will be displayed. If there are any concerns with this display of information, please be sure to reach out. If we do not hear from you by Friday, June 3rd, the default option is cap and gown photo
