Senior Graduate Banquet | Sunday, May 6, 2018

This is the most special time of the year for seniors. Seniors receive a special gift from the High School Ministry, participate in a unique blessing ceremony by parents, family, and mentors, and are served a wonderful meal.
In order to participate in the blessing ceremony, a parent, significant influence or other mentor in the student’s life is required to attend just one of three training dates. If the adult presenting the blessing will be a female, please have them attend the March 28th training with Jenn Skinner. Please choose from one of the following dates and RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
The training dates are:
Wednesday, February 28 | 5:45 pm | Warehouse, Room HS-1 led by Jey Willis
Wednesday, March 14 | 5:45 pm | Warehouse, Room HS-1 led by Jey Willis
Wednesday, March 28| 5:45 pm | Warehouse, Room HS-1 led by Jey Willis & Jenn Skinner
The cost for the banquet is free to the senior and $18 per person for parents and guests. Payment should be received in the HS office by April 25. Checks should be made out to FBCW. Family members/friends/relatives are encouraged to attend. Tables will seat 8 people, please let us know if you need additional seats at your table.
All families are encouraged to decorate your student’s table for that evening. The tables will be ready for decorating beginning at 3:00pm on Sunday, May 6th. Decorating ideas include, but are not limited to, school colors, future college colors, pictures and items representing their favorite hobbies/sports.
We will be creating a slideshow of our seniors this year. Please submit a baby picture and senior picture to email@example.com by April 25th. If they are not received by then, we cannot guarantee that your student’s pictures will make the slideshow!
