The Senior Parent Meeting is March 27 at 7 p.m. This final parent meeting is dedicated entirely to information surrounding the final weeks for seniors to include: Prom, Senior Pilgrimage, Senior Exams, AP Exams, Senior Book Return, Baccalaureate, Honors Assembly, and Graduation. Parents will also pick up cap and gown. Please mark your calendars now! Please mark your calendar now and plan to be in attendance!

BACCALAUREATE – May 17th at St. Brigid’s Catholic Church. 3 tickets per graduate. The graduate does not need a ticket. Everyone else in attendance must have a ticket to enter the main church before 7:30 pm; Mass procession begins at 7:30 pm. The graduate must be in cap and gown with appropriate dress clothes (boys: dark slacks, shirt/tie, dress shoes; girls: skirt/dress/slacks, blouse, appropriate shoes). There will be NO extra tickets available for Baccalaureate. Once the official Mass begins, parents and or guests without tickets are welcome to enter the church and fill in any empty seats after the procession of the celebrants.

HONORS ASSEMBLY – May 18th at St. Pius X Catholic High School. No tickets needed for anyone; everyone invited. The assembly procession begins at 8:00 a.m. The graduate must be in cap and gown with appropriate dress clothes (boys: dark slacks, shirt/tie, dress shoes; girls: skirt/dress/slacks, blouse, appropriate shoes).

GRADUATION – May 19th at Greater Atlanta Christian School Long Forum. 10 tickets per graduate (7 for the lower level in the arena, 3 for the upper level in the arena). The graduate does not need a ticket. The graduation procession begins at approximately 8:20 a.m. The graduate must be in cap and gown with appropriate dress clothes (boys: dark slacks, shirt/tie, dress shoes; girls: skirt/dress/slacks, blouse, appropriate shoes).

Due to the number of seats available in the GACS Long Forum, we will have some additional tickets available via lottery; please look for a Google doc sign up in a future email closer to Spring Break/Easter Break. At that point families will have better knowledge of possible extra ticket needs beyond the original issue of 10 tickets. St. Pius X will not have additional tickets available for Baccalaureate. St. Pius X does not take part in any ticket exchanges, "brokering," or maintain a list of extra tickets or of needed tickets. Any exchange must be handled by the parents/students personally. The school does NOT condone parents and students selling their extra graduation or baccalaureate tickets to other families.

If your family needs consideration for a handicapped relative attending the graduation event on May 19th (meaning you have an individual who cannot transfer from a wheelchair or walker into a seat within the GACS Long Forum arena) we need to know that information for ticket planning purposes. Look for a Google doc closer to Spring Break/Easter Break so that you can provide us with that information.
