This time of year is always very busy and full of events for the graduating seniors.  Here are all the details seniors need to know.

 

Water wars have already commenced. There was a meeting on May 2nd to talk about the rules. Ever since the participants received their target on Friday, May 6th there have been people getting out daily.

 

During water wars, the participants must get a video of them hitting their target with water outside of school, work, places of worship, homes, or any school-related events. Once a target is out they must give the name of their target to the person who got them out.

 

Water wars will end before senior sunset, which is May 19th at 7:30 pm. Half of the proceeds made from the entry fees will be given to the winner and the other half will go to a charity of their choice. If there is no winner, half of the money will go towards the student council (StuCo) for future events.

 

The senior Gala was supposed to be on May 12th from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm at the Jeremy Ranch Golf Club. However, the event was canceled. A new event might take its place, but Stuco has not decided yet.

 

Seniors will gather at the base of PC hill on May 19th at 7:30 pm for senior sunset. The event is free and there is no signup. Seniors should bring blankets, but StuCo will provide everything else.

 

“We did the senior sunrise at the beginning of the year and closing with the sunrise is a fun way to bring people together at the end and represent the full circle of the year,” said senior class president Tessa Campbell.

 

Prom will take place on May, 21st from 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm at Silver Lake Lodge. Tickets are $45 for singles and $80 for doubles. StuCo will sell them every A and B lunch from May 9th-20st. On Friday, May 20th StuCo will sell tickets from 11:30 to 12:00 after school.

 

There will be live music performed by students as well as a DJ, a photobooth, printable photos, and desserts. Each attendee will be breathalyzed upon arrival.

 

The dance is a junior-senior event only, unless underclassmen are invited by upperclassmen. StuCo has forms available in the student store for those inviting people outside of the school district.

 

Those wearing dresses to prom are encouraged to wear long dresses. The theme for the dance is “enchanted garden,” however themed outfits are not required.

 

“Our senior class has only had three dances because of COVID, so we want to encourage people to come to this final dance we have and celebrate together,” said senior class vice president Lauren Cheng.

 

On June 2nd, after a graduation rehearsal from 8:00 am – 11:00 am, the graduating class and guests can go to a photo opp on Dozier Field throughout the day. This started last year due to CODID-19 and will continue. Seniors can gather and take pictures by a “2022” sign and a chairlift representing Park City.

 

June 3rd is graduation day. Another final graduation practice will be in the morning at Dozier from 8:00 am – 10:30 am. After, there will be a grab-and-go brunch and chairlift ride held at Crescent Lift in PCMR from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm.

 

There is no guest limit for graduation. Picnic-style, bleachers, and VIP seating will all be available. The ceremony will start at 5:00 pm on Dozier.

 

Stiletto heels are not allowed on Dozier field due to the risk of damaging the artificial turf. Wedges and thick heels are permitted.
