Yearbook distribution for Seniors
is on June 1st after school in the CTE hallway by the welding and auto shop classrooms. This early pick-up day is for Seniors to bring a food item to donate to the Maple Valley Food Bank in order to pick up their yearbook.

If Seniors want to pick up their yearbook without bringing a food item to donate, they can do so on June 2nd during Spring Fling.

Please bring a picture ID with you to expedite the handout process.

Graduation Details

Class of 2023 Graduation Ceremony is June 15th at 7:00PM in ShoWare Center in Kent.

Need a tux for Prom?

Are you a senior in need and would like a free tux for Prom? If so, we have a community member who would like to help you have a memorable prom by giving you a gift card to get a free tux rental! In return she would like you to work a 3–4-hour shift stuffing envelopes or helping at a local triathlon.

If you are interested in the free tux, please let your school counselor know by May 5th in person or via email. Your name will be added to the list, and you will receive confirmation after the deadline.
