Dear Seniors and Parents/Guardians:
Please refer to this letter for details regarding graduation! The graduation ceremony will be held on Friday, June 9th at 6:30 p.m. at Chisago Lakes Performing Arts Center (PAC), located at 29400 Olinda Trail in Lindstrom, MN. Only Wolf Creek students who have completed at least 25.00 credits by noon on May 25th are allowed to participate in the graduation ceremony. Commencement is a voluntary event in which students may choose to participate; each student participating in the ceremony will be required to pay a $20 fee. Each student in the ceremony will be required to wear a graduation cap and gown. They are considered one-time-use; therefore they may be kept by the graduate after the ceremony. (Note: there is no charge for these). Each graduate participating in the ceremony is required to attend graduation practice on Friday, June 9th at 11 a.m. at Chisago Lakes Performing Arts Center (PAC). After practice graduates will return to Wolf Creek campus where they will be given their cap, gown, and tassel; as well as treated to lunch.
Graduates will earn a TRIO Wolf Creek Charter School accredited diploma. Diplomas will be granted when the student has met all graduation requirements and/or obligations. The requirements to receive a diploma are:
- Complete 26.00 course credit requirements and standards in specific areas, as established by the school board.
- Pass the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments in reading, mathematics, and written composition as per state requirements or higher guidelines or meet testing requirement through GRAD, ACT, ACCUPLACER or ASVAB options.
- Return all materials and pay all fines, charges, etc.
Attached is a Graduation Order Form, please return it and the fee, if applicable, to Wolf Creek by March 31st. Please note: for students to be listed in the commencement documents, they must have earned at least 21.0 credits by the end of term 3 (March 31). For students to participate in commencement ceremony, students must complete at least 25.0 credits by the May 25th deadline.
Graduates that choose not to participate in commencement should schedule a time with me to pick up their diploma. Students short on credits may register for summer school or the upcoming school year. If you have any questions feel free to contact me. More graduation details will be coming out soon.
We look forward to working with you regarding Graduation 2017! Please feel free to contact me with any questions you have.
