Please read below for important Graduation information, and upcoming dates for our Seniors! This was also emailed to parents/guardians and students on January 23rd.


Dear Carlisle High School Seniors and Parents,

Graduation is only a few months away. Seniors are working hard to end their high school careers on a positive note. A Senior Class meeting will be held in February to discuss end of year events, while also discussing proper student decorum and maintaining a high level of academic success.

On the reverse side of this document are important dates for seniors related to end of year activities. Additional information will be provided as we get closer to each event. It is important to note the Commencement Ceremony will be held outdoors on June 1st in Ken Millen Stadium. While we maintain our optimism and we do not expect to deviate from the timeline of scheduled events, please note changes could occur.

Please take the time to ensure specific items are completed as we near the end of the school year:

  1. Physical — The school nurse must have proof of a physical on file. This is typically done in 11th grade. (A copy of your driver's license will suffice, or proof of a physical). If a student is unsure of their status they may check with the McGowan Nurse (Mrs. Lello).
  2. College applications -- are they completed?
  3. Scholarship applications -- are they completed?
  4. Job applications -- are they completed?
  5. Military Service -- have you met with your recruiter and is all the necessary paperwork completed?
  6. Act 158 -- Have you met all of the state graduation requirements?

If you have questions or concerns about graduation, student grades, and/or other items please talk with your student's school counselor or Mr. Beals.


Mr. Jason Beals
Associate Principal - Grade 12
Carlisle High School
