Mt. Carmel High School Music Department presents: The Addams Family, A musical comedy.
Class of 2021, Practice is scheduled for Monday, May 10, at 10:00 am, in Gym 1. Honors' Night is scheduled for Friday, May 14, at 7:00 pm, in Gym 1. Graduation is scheduled for Saturday, May 15, at 10:00 am, at Riverview Stadium. Rain time #1 is 7:00 pm, Saturday, May 15 Rain time #2 is 2:00 pm, Sunday, May 16 Again, Mandatory Honors' Night and Graduation practice is scheduled for Monday, May 10th, at 10:00 am. We will start in the gym and get a class picture, then a lot of information out at that time. This is also the time to pick up gowns and other materials from Jostens. From there, we will move downstairs to the concession stand area by the football field. It is our hope to have one (1) practice. This is entirely up to the class by showing up on time and staying focused for the time we need to get it done. We will not start until everyone is there, so if you have a classmate that you know may struggle to be on time, be his or her alarm clock/motivation/car ride/etc. As it has been for eons, you must attend the practice and Honors' NIght if you want to participate in the graduation ceremony on Saturday. You will also need to make sure all fees are paid prior to the Graduation ceremony if you plan to participate. Rachael is sending invoices out this week. As of right now, we are not setting a specific guest limit for Honors' Night as it is usually not heavily attended. We do ask each family to be considerate when inviting non-vaccinated guests to an indoor gathering. We do not want to get into a situation where we reach our capacity and have to turn people away. Graduation will not have a guest limit. Email Mr. Newkirk if you have any questions.
