Attn:   Seniors

The Balfour representative will be on campus to meet with seniors to distribute graduation item information on Oct. 5 at 8:15 a.m. The representative will be back on Oct. 17 to take senior orders. All seniors must turn in a completed cap and gown order form. The cap, gown, and one tassel is included in each student's senior fees, so no payment is due on Oct. 17 if the student is only ordering his or her cap and gown. In addition to caps and gown, Balfour also provides optional items for purchase, including graduation invitations, souvenir tassels, and other graduation memorabilia. These additional items are optional, and a deposit is requested at the time the order is placed. 

 

Attn:  Sophomores and Juniors

All 10th and 11th graders will be taking the PSAT/NMSQT on Oct. 11 during the school day. Please mark your calendars and ensure your student arrives on time to school. Late students will not be admitted once testing begins. This test is the qualifier for the National Merit Scholarship Program. There is nothing your student should do to prepare, but please encourage your student to do his or her best.
