Seniors & Graduation Information

As we head towards graduation on June 15th, be sure to check back to this page for updates.

Sr. Salute & Graduation Performance Auditions

Thank you for your interest in auditioning for performances during Senior Salute & Graduation.
Due to Governor Inslee's mandate to close schools through April 24th, we will postpone auditions until early May (actual date and times are TBD).  In the meantime, should schools be closed longer than we anticipate, we are considering accepting digital submissions and will be developing a submission procedure.
As we receive new and updated guidance regarding the school closure, we will inform you of next steps on this page.

Class of 2020!  Are you musically inclined? Do you have a passion for public speaking and might want to make a speech at Graduation or Senior Salute? 

Interested students need to:
  • Email Dr. King, jusking@lwsd.org with your name
  • What you would like to do (speech or music number)
  • Speeches should be no longer than 7 minutes in length, and music must have accompaniment arranged for the audition.
  • A committee of administrators, teachers, staff and counselors will determine the final program choices. 
  • Audition Dates are TBD.
