Information For Upperclassmen:

  • Juniors: do you want to be a Titan Ambassador next year? Be a motivator, leader and teacher who guides the freshmen through their transition to high school. If you’re interested, email [email protected] or sign up at the link on the daily bulletin.
  • If you want your Community Service hours to go on your Gunn transcript, the Community Service Tracking Form must be turned in to the Assistant Principal of Guidance by September 6, 2019 at the latest. Remember: you must have at least 100 hours of service on the form before you turn it in. And it MUST BE LEGIBLE.
  • Attention Seniors! If you are planning to attend a 4-year college next year, you MUST tell Parchment which college is to receive your Final Transcript. Be sure you take care of this last step before you graduate on May 30! And remember, the Registrar will only send your Final Transcript to ONE COLLEGE, unless you are in a Wait List situation. If so, you must stop by the Registrar’s office and show her your Wait List letter. See the Registrar with questions.
  • If you purchased a graduation cap and gown set, they will be distributed on May 23 in front of Bow Gym during lunch. If you still need to purchase one, bring $62.50 (checks made out to Jostens) on May 23 and buy one there.
  • Senior check-out forms will be distributed at Cap & Gown pickup on May 23 and must be completed and turned in to your counselor by the end of the day on May 28. Students who have not completed the form will not receive their Graduation Name Card and will not be allowed to participate in rehearsal. Please see your counselor with any questions.
