Graduation 2015 Information
Dear Parents of 2015 Graduates,
As our seniors begin their final semester at Plano West, they are also gearing up for one of their most notable milestone events. Plano West will celebrate graduation at the Dallas Convention Center on Friday, June 12, 2015, at 2:00 p.m. This message provides important information that all families of graduates should know about this year's event.
Graduation tickets are issued based on the number of graduates to be accommodated at the venue. Each Plano West graduate will receive five tickets to share with family and friends. Additionally, Plano ISD provides live event coverage on a WFAA digital television station and via webcast. Specific details regarding the television channel and the web address for the broadcast are forthcoming.
Seating at the event is general admission. An area for persons with impaired mobility will be located on the arena floor. Each disabled person may be accompanied by one companion (both must have tickets). Tickets will be distributed at our campus in June.
Additional information regarding public transportation, parking, wheelchair rentals, post event broadcasts and more are available on the Plano ISD website at www.pisd.edu/graduation. We look forward to sharing this memorable experience with our graduates and their families.
Save a Life!
Each day 160,000 students do not go to school because they are bullied, teased and harassed.
Produced by the Theatre Productions students at Plano West Senior High School, “Save a Life” utilizes student performances to deliver a message regarding bullying and suicide prevention. To enhance the impact, the performers included an interactive conclusion to the performance which enabled the audience to participate and established a very personal dimension. This message was delivered to both adult and student audiences.
Optional student accident insurance is available through Markel Insurance Company. Parents will enroll online utilizing Markel’s dedicated secure enrollment website: http://markel.sevencorners.com.
