Falcon High School Class of 2020 Announcements

  • Class of 2020 Calendar and Details

    All questions and concerns in regard to the Class of 2020 can be directed to

     Miss Pearce at apearce@d49.org or Mr. McCluan at mmccluan@d49.org.

    For yearbook questions, please contact Mr. Stump at nstump@d49.org.

    Questions regarding Herff Jones orders can be directed to Herff Jones themselves:

    (719) 573-1234 or bacashdollar@herffjones.com.

     

    • Update to Cap & Gown Purchases: Cap and gown purchases have a finite due date of March 13th so that a timely delivery for April 10th is guaranteed. If this due date is missed, parents/students will have to contact Herff Jones directly for orders to ensure timely delivery (expedited charges may apply). Please know now that students who do not have cap/gown (either not purchased or forgotten at home) will not be able to participate in the graduation ceremony.
    • Point of Clarification in regards to Graduation and Cap/Gowns: Cap and gown bundles are the minimum requirement for seniors and Herff Jones purchases. If a student or family does not wish to purchase a cap/gown package because they are using and/or borrowing one from our previous graduating class, that is more than okay. However, with the Class of 2019, Falcon High School did move to an all-inclusive gown design. The new gown is a deep green with gold cuffs as well as the Falcon High School emblem embroidered on the left chest. If the gown wanting to be borrowed is NOT this design, a new one will need to be purchased.

     

    • Update to Senior Breakfast Ticket Sales: Due to the number of closures and EDays FHS has had in the recent weeks, ticket sales have been extended until Friday, Aril 3rd. However, the cut off for lottery entry will still be March 13th. Families who have been entered into the lottery will be unaffected by this extension.
    • Senior Breakfast Ticket Sales: Senior Breakfast tickets are now on sale at the Finance window in the front office with Mrs. Apodaca. Physical tickets for the event should be picked up with Miss Pearce in H211 no later than Thursday, April 9th!
    • Senior Breakfast tickets will be sold until April 3rd. No one will be sold a ticket after this date.
      • The ticket price will be $30 for students and $35 each for up to two guests- $100 total for the max party of three.
        • The guest limit is final unless we do no reach our max capacity. This is not our rule; it is building capacity and fire code.
        • Any student/parent/guardian who wishes to bring more than the two-allotted people may be entered in a lottery for up to two additional tickets if there are any extra tickets to be sold bringing the max total of your party to five. Winners will be drawn and announced March 30th. The winners of the lottery will be contacted and payment for the ticket(s) ($35 each) will be expected no later than April 3rd. Tickets not paid for will be forfeited.
          • If you are interested in putting your name in the ticket lottery once the original tickets are purchased, please contact Miss Pearce at apearce@d49.org before March 13th. Once the school has been released for Spring Break, names will not be entered into the lottery.

     

     

    March 11th: Herff Jones will be on campus to deliver purchased announcements and invitations. If you or your student purchased announcements/invitations, please make sure your student is present on campus next Wednesday for pick-up. An ID will be needed for verification purposes. Remember, cap and gowns will not be received until Senior Breakfast, but all other products (hoodies, rings, etc.) will be delivered upon order completion.

    • There will be a “Twin Contest!” Students who are able to dress, capture, and emulate the style of their Take Over teacher will win a fun prize! Start planning out that signature look and be a “Mini Me” to remember!

    April 3rd- Senior Sunset, 5:30 p.m. – 8 p.m.! Come kick off the graduation season with the social hour of the quarter. Senior Sunset will be a 50s Diner theme so bust out your best poodle skirts and greaser jackets. This is a completely free event to the seniors of 2020 only and IDs will be required for entry.
