Service learning hours: Due May 13. Hours can be submitted online through the SRHS website. Due to the interruption to school over the last two years, the service learning requirement is suspended, but if students want to be recognized for the two hundred hours Service Learning Pin at graduation, all hours need to be submitted by May 13.
Senior Exhibition Presentations: May 11 and May 25: The required Senior Exhibition presentations will be made in Community Time. If students have not submitted their resumes to their CT teacher, they will need to do so as well. Students have been working on this during Community Time. Seniors should see their Community Time teachers if they have questions.

Graduation Caps and Gowns
Caps, gowns, and other ordered items from Jostens have been distributed to seniors on Friday, April 22 during lunches.
If you still need to order a cap, gown or tassel, please contact our Jostens representative online at www.jostens.com or 1-800-567-8367 or 503-660-8032.
Seniors who have a financial need regarding the cost of a cap, gown and tassel should see Sho Shigeoka or their counselor. The school has a limited number of caps and gowns students can borrow for the Commencement ceremony.
Commencement—3:00-5:00pm, Skyhawk Stadium, Southridge High School
Students should arrive at 2:00pm and check-in at the Front Entrance of SRHS.
Skyhawk Stadium will also open at 2:00pm for seating. We will use two entrances, one down by Conestoga Rec Center at the bottom of the ramp, and the other near the home stands and the plaza. The concession stand will be open, with proceeds supporting athletic scholarships.
We will have the field open if you would like to bring lawn chairs and blankets. The home stands will also be open for families and guests to sit in.
For parents, seating in Skyhawk Stadium is on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets are required for admission. Please be considerate of other guests attending; we ask families to not "reserve" whole blocks of seats for later arriving families.
Students’ personal items (purses, phones, etc.) must be left with friends or family during graduation. These items are not allowed backstage, and graduates will be asked to turn them over to staff.
There will be some reserved seating for those in wheelchairs or with similar disability needs. Please let the volunteer ushers know when you arrive if you have special seating needs.
It is expected that our graduating seniors dress in attire that matches the significance of this event. Caps and gowns need to be worn as issued.
Caps can be decorated. We encourage students to be creative and thoughtful. Inappropriate designs, derogatory language, and political statements will not be allowed.
Students may wear cultural stoles and leis. We ask students to NOT drape a flag over their robe or wear a flag. If students would like to represent their nationality we ask that they decorate their cap and/or purchase a stole with their countries flag as the design.
Students are asked to dress appropriately for graduation, (i.e. business attire). Please do NOT wear heels that puncture the field as they will sink into the field.
We have arranged to have a professional photographer to capture the moment of graduation for each graduate and that photo will be made available for purchase.
If you need to request an American Sign Language interpreter at graduation, please contact Sho Shigeoka at 503-356-2890 or Sho_Shigeoka@beaverton.k12.or.us by Friday, June 3. We will once again be live-streaming the Commencement Ceremony. Specific details will be released closer to Graduation.
Senior Edition of The Quill
Now is the time to complete your FAFSA if you have not already done so. FAFSA can provide additional money for a community college, trade school or university. Students without a social security number can also apply for additional money using ORSAA. Visit OSAC to help determine which one to complete. All students who complete their FAFSA or ORSAA in February will receive a gift card to a local business too ! We will be providing 'help' sessions for students to work on their FAFSA or ORSAA in the coming weeks and we will have a parent 'help' event the evening of Feb. 15. More information to follow. If you have any questions, please email your students counselor.
The Oregon Promise Grant Information
The verification process for the Oregon Promise Grant has changed a little bit this year potentially allowing students below the 2.5 GPA requirement to be awarded the grant as well. Any senior planning on attending any Oregon community college next year is strongly encouraged to apply. Visit OSAC to start the application. Families completing the Oregon Promise application will need to also complete the FAFSA or ORSAA. If you have any questions, please email your students counselor.
