(3) Cap and Gown orders. Students NEED a cap and gown to participate in graduation at Merriweather. Cost is $40. Online ordering opens 11/4. Mr. Murphy from Herff Jones will be available 11/4 on all lunch shifts to take orders and questions. Extra order packets are available in the front office.
*The half sheets to collect information are NOT essential. I am sending Mr. Murphy a list of seniors to cross reference. It is merely to get base information for their ordering. CAP Size is N/A- they are elastic. It is best to skip the cards and not stress over them- just pass out ordering packets:)
