The required graduation supply fee is $62.50 (does not include 9% sales tax, shipping and handling). Cap measurements will be taken prior to placing the order; however, students will need to know their correct height and weight on their own. ** A meeting was held by Balfour on Monday, October 6th.

Also on Wednesday, October 15th, Belmont Studios Photography will be available to deliver proofs, packages, place orders, etc.
