Senior Obligations

Mandatory Obligations

Senior Dues

Senior Dues are must be paid prior to buying Homecoming tickets, ordering a t-shirt, or attending any senior activity.  Dues are $40.

It is very important that seniors begin paying down obligations: magnet fees, missing books, lab fees, magnet supplies (tuxedos, instruments, etc.).  Please do not wait until the end of the year to take care of this.  Remember it takes time for teachers to resolve missing textbook issues.

Cap and Gown
Graduate services will distribute order forms for caps and gowns, invitations, announcements, memory books, etc.  They will take orders and money in January during B and C lunch in the cafeteria.  Please pay attention to due dates to avoid late charges.

Students who borrow a cap and gown from an older sibling or friend will need to buy a 2017 tassel.  See Ms. Sorrell for this.

Announcements, invitations, memory books will be delivered to Stivers in April during lunch.  Caps and gowns will be handed out at the first commencement practice.

Composite Photo
Students who would like their photo to appear on the Class of 2017 composite photograph need to schedule an appointment at Schwabe Studio. 


Senior pictures
You may use any photographer you choose for your senior pictures.  Do not feel pressured to purchase senior photos or to use one studio over another.  Senior photos can be very expensive.  Many students use Schwabe Studio. 

The Homecoming Game is Saturday, October 1st (King and Queen will be announced at the game) and the Homecoming Dance is Friday, September 30th at Stivers. The Stivers Homecoming is a semi-formal event and the ticket price is $20. Students may purchase one ticket for a non–Stivers guest for $25. This dance is the main fundraiser for the senior class.  Tickets will be on sale the week of the dance.  Seniors must have paid senior dues to purchase a ticket.  Ms. Sorrell can answer questions about this event.

Senior Dinner
The senior dinner (March 11th) is a nice event for seniors only (no family or friends).  Seniors will eat dinner, receive senior superlatives, watch the senior slide show, and take photographs.  This event is for seniors who have paid their senior dues and have paid all obligations to date.

The Prom is May 5th.  Prom is a formal event and is held at the Greek Orthodox Church next to the Dayton Art Institute. Seniors receive a free ticket for themselves and may purchase one ticket for a non-Stivers student.  Mrs. Daniels can answer questions about this event.

Senior Pic Nic
The Senior Pic Nic is open to all seniors. The date, time and location will be announced later, but this event usually occurs after one of the commencement practices.  There is no charge for this, just bring a dish to share.  Sign up sheet will be posted in English classes.
