Honor your SMN Senior with a Legacy Brick!

Seniors Last Day- Currently scheduled for May 17, 2024. Plan on a final at 7:40 and then MacBook return, Checkout, receive caps/gowns, a senior meeting, etc. Probably done with all activities around noon. Senior Finals Schedule will be released soon.  

Graduates will receive caps and gowns on the Seniors Last Day. 


  • Graduation is free to attend. We anticipate an outdoor graduation in the stadium. Currently, tickets will only be needed if the ceremony needs to be moved indoors, however we wanted you to be aware and begin planning for any possibilities.
    Graduates will have a limited number of guests allowed at the ceremony.  Each senior has been provided 6 tickets to share with family or friends for admission to the event.  The tickets are for each individual that attends. (Similar to a Royals game if you have a very young child that will sit on your lap, that child will not need a ticket). Please distribute these to those who will use them if necessary. 

There will be more communication coming as graduation approaches. Please be aware of a few items that could be road blocks for graduating.

  1. Academic Achievement: It is extremely important that every Senior knows where they stand academically and the classes they must complete to satisfy all graduation requirements. Check with your counselor if you have concerns.
  2. Financial Accounts must be in good standing: Please know that the current year fees must be paid in full to be able to participate in the graduation. Previous years and/or outstanding fees must be paid in full to receive your diploma. To avoid any issues please make sure you pay all current year fees no later than Thursday, May 4th.
    • SM North has been and will continue to send email notices to those with unpaid balances at the beginning of each month.
    • You can reference your fees and payment history on your Skyward account.
