Senior Year/Graduation Info

Knoch High School administration and staff recognize what an enormous and memorable event high school commencement is in a student's life.  Preparation for this day happens not only in the classroom, but outside as well.  Students, teachers, administrators, school directors, and families all play a role in bringing students to the point where they are ready to receive their diploma and move on to their next step in life.  With so many entities involved, we want to help families understand what they and their students are expected to do outside of the classroom throughout the course of senior year to be ready.  School Counselors communicate with the seniors throughout the year to help them through the process.  It's important that families be informed as well, so ask them to share what is being emailed to them.  Postings will also appear here as the year goes on with due dates and information parents need to see their senior through Commencement.  Please check back often for updates.
