*Robing ceremony is an opportunity for someone of importance in the senior’s life to help them put on their cap and gown for the first time.  The senior asks the individual(s) they choose to robe them to be present this night.  They can select anyone of their choice such as parents, grandparents, sibling, coach, teacher, or other person they feel has had a significant influence in their life.  They will pick up the cap and gown and line up in the auditorium together.  There is a short program where each senior and the person robing them are called to the stage.  At this time, the senior’s name is announced followed by the 3 most important accomplishments of the senior.  These do not have to be school related.  A professional photographer will be at the event to take pictures as the senior is robed.  After the ceremony is complete, everyone is invited to come on stage and take any pictures they wish to take.  This is a great time to take cap/gown pictures of your senior and their friends.
