Baccalaureate Plans

The PTSA is honored to present this year's Senior Baccalaureate Service. Due to the Governor's Executive Order limiting social gatherings, the PTSA will honor the graduating class with a virtual / recorded Baccalaureate Service featuring remarks from Richmond leaders and musical selections performed by fellow graduates and peers. The PTSA will share this service in a Smoke and Scales "Special Edition" offering seniors a keepsake to help celebrate their hard work and achievements.

To help us create our video, we would like to feature seniors in their caps and gowns. We ask for seniors to please upload their cap and gown pictures by June 7 to: Baccalaureate Cap and Gown PhotosFor more information, contact Julie Hendricks804.357.0935.
