Senior News


Cap/Gown

Seniors will receive cap/gown and announcement information at the mandatory senior AT on Tuesday, October 22nd with the Josten's representative. *Cap/Gown is $20 and can be purchased online or when Josten's returns on Thursday, November 7th and Friday, November 8th during lunches, 11 AM - 1 PM, to collect orders.* If ordering at the school, payment for cap/gown must be made out to Josten's or in cash. Order Online.

Senior Dues

Senior Dues are a $20 payment to the school that we ask of all Seniors. Dues cover the cost of the class gift, flowers, and other graduation expenses. Senior Dues can be paid either by cash or a check made out to Colchester High School. If for any reason you cannot pay your Senior Dues, please reach out to your class adviser Ms. Gauding (emma.gauding@colchestersd.org) or Mr. Beaudoin (benjamin.beaudoin@colchestersd.org).

Senior Debt

Some seniors have unpaid debts to the school. Unpaid debt includes: lost school/library books, lunch accounts, senior dues, and athletic uniforms. These debts must be paid in order to participate in the graduation ceremony. *Seniors with unpaid books and/or other financial obligations will not march at graduation.* Seniors with debt will receive a breakdown when they receive the senior letter in April.

Photos for Yearbook

All senior portraits (and other senior section photos) are *due by Friday, November 22nd, 2019*. We strongly prefer that photos be submitted electronically (in .jpg format) - the picture quality is much better. Photos should be sent to cshyearbook@colchestersd.org. If you are unable to submit the photo electronically, you may put a hard copy in the drop box in the main office; yearbook staff will scan the photo and return it to you. Senior quotations & messages must be submitted via the Google form that will be emailed to students at the start of the school year.

Order Your Yearbook

You can order your yearbook starting on August 1st, 2019 for $75.

We will be accepting orders until June 12th, 2020. If you don’t pre-order a yearbook we only order 20 extras - don’t let your student miss out on this amazing publication! Order your yearbook now! There are two ways to order a yearbook:

1. Use your credit or debit card to pay online here.

2. Write a check made payable to CHS, and submit it to Ms. deLaricheliere’s mailbox in the main office along with an order form (available in the main office). Seal it in an envelope and clearly label your name. *Sorry, we are no longer accepting cash for yearbook payment*.

Project Grad

Project Grad takes place on June 15, 2019 (the night of graduation), and goes all night long! The event provides CHS graduates with an opportunity to celebrate with their classmates in a safe, drug & alcohol free environment.

Project Grad IS NOT organized by CHS staff or the administration. It takes a team, a collective effort of parents and student volunteers, to pull off an event of this size. In other words… WE NEED YOUR HELP! There will be numerous opportunities to contribute throughout the year, and there is plenty of work to go around.

The Project Grad Committee is starting work on what this year’s celebration will offer. To ensure that you are up-to-date with the latest information, please add your info to our mailing list by emailing Tiera Porter at tiera.porter@uvm.edu. You can also join our Facebook group. Look for Colchester High School Project Grad 2019 and ask to join.

Our first meeting will be September 11th at 7pm in CHS room 101. Please join us.
