Senior Agenda



Dear Class of 2019 Senior and Parent/Guardian,

Welcome to your senior year! There are many things to be decided on and accomplished yet this fall. Therefore, we will be meeting at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, September 4, in Mrs. Hershey’s room. Seniors attending the MVCTC will be responsible for getting to MVCTC on their own after pictures and meeting are completed. (Juniors will be bused to the MVCTC at their regular time.) The following items will be addressed at this meeting:

  1. Name on Diploma: Indicate how you would like your name to appear on your diploma. You will complete a form during the meeting stating your legal name and how it should appear on your diploma.

  1. Order Senior Shirt: Orders for senior shirts will be taken. You will complete the order form at the meeting and payment of $11.00 for a short sleeve t-shirt, $14.00 for a long sleeve t-shirt and $21.00 for a hoodie must accompany your order at this meeting. Checks should be made payable to Mississinawa Valley School. This is the only date shirts may be ordered, and no shirts will be ordered without payment! You will be choosing the design at this meeting.

  1. Baby Picture: Please bring a baby picture with you to this meeting. Be sure to write your name on the back of your picture. This picture will be used for the slide show at graduation.

  1. Josten’s Information: Graduation supply orders. You must order a cap and gown if you are going through the graduation ceremony. If you have a brother or sister who has a cap and gown that is still in good shape, you may use it, but you need to let Mrs. Hershey know that you are going to do this. MVCTC students will order supplies at the MVCTC and they will be delivered to you at the MVCTC.

  1. Senior Pictures: A photographer from LifeTouch Photography will be at school to take pictures for the senior composite and yearbook. All pictures used for the class composite must be taken by LifeTouch Photography. No pictures may be submitted due to copyright laws.

As you select your outfit for this picture, keep the following guidelines in mind:

  • Gentlemen must wear a shirt and tie. Those wearing t-shirts will not be photographed.

  • Ladies should wear dark, solid colors as these will photograph the best.

  • Ladies must wear something with sleeves. No off-the-shoulder tops are permitted.


  1. Class colors, flower, motto and senior menu: You will be voting on these items at this meeting.

These will need to be turned in to Mrs. Hershey in April; however, she will collect them at any time between now and April.
