We will be offering college essay workshops several times over the summer. At these times, you will have the opportunity to meet with Mrs. Bryant and get help with your college essays.

Balfour representatives will be here in chapel to make their presentation regarding the ordering of graduation announcements and caps and gowns.
You must order a cap and gown and tassel for commencement, even if you do not order anything else. An exception would be if you have an older sibling that is approximately the same height that graduated from FWC. You may use that sibling's cap and gown, but you must order a tassel. You do not have to order the bling tassel. The regular tassel is adequate.
Balfour does have an "official" graduation announcement, but they also have a variety of more contemporary announcements that you could choose to order. Ordering your announcements from Balfour is optional. You may choose to order personalized announcements elsewhere if you desire. Balfour will also have a variety of senior items available for purchase.
