Plans to Honor the Class of 2020
Last week, the Commissioner of the Texas Education Agency (TEA) announced guidelines for end of the year events such as graduation and prom that all schools are required to follow. While we must be in compliance with the State requirements, we also want a traditional ceremony for the Class of 2020. To that end, we have selected an outdoor venue that not only meets these requirements but also provides for as many guests to attend as social distancing guidelines allow.
Tuesday, June 9th with a weather make up day on Wednesday, June 10th.
Woodforest Bank Stadium located at 19115 David Memorial Drive Shenandoah, TX 77385.
Magnolia West High School will graduate at 8 AM
Magnolia High School will graduate at 8 PM
All entrances to the parking areas, Stadium, and guest group seating are color-coded. Please make sure that you follow your color and park, enter, and sit in the areas designated for your group.Graduates will follow the same color as their guest group.
Dress for Graduation
It is recommended that female graduates wear a dress or dress pants, a blouse, and flat-soled dress shoes. High heels are not recommended as it is extremely difficult to walk on the turf in heels. Male graduates are recommended to wear slacks, a collared shirt, and dress shoes.
A large portion of the ceremony has been pre-recorded to practice health and safety guidelines. Following the guidelines, there will be no rehearsal, and graduates and their families will enter the stadium through their color-coded designated entrance to take their seats.
The ceremony will be live-streamed on the District’s Communication YouTube page.
SENIOR BILLBOARDS & SIGNS
Billboards honoring the Class of 2020 can be found on FM 1488 (Magnolia High) and FM 1774 (Magnolia West.)
Thank you to the Magnolia Education Foundation for working with both of our high schools to fund and create lawn signs for all of our seniors. Look for more information to follow about how to pick up your Class of 2020 Senior Sign.
As of the week of April 20th, Balfour has halted all printing of yearbooks. They hope to begin printing in late May/early June. Yearbooks can still be purchased and should be available in July.
