Jostens Graduation Cap & Gown Order Form

Dear BHS Seniors and Families,

The time has come to order your senior Cap and Gown for graduation. Last Friday, we had our representative from Jostens talk about the process with the senior class. All seniors should have a packet from Jostens that includes the order form for the cap and gown and also the other optional items that Jostens has to offer, like class jewelry and announcements. Bellingham Public Schools is providing the cap, tassel and gown free of cost to families. The cap and tassel will be kept by the graduate and the gown will be returned after graduation. Please bring the Jostens order form to school on Thursday November 21st. Jostens will be attending both lunches. This order form needs to be filled out by every senior who is participating in the graduation ceremony. The order form lists the height of the student, as the gowns come in different sizes. If you or your student is unable to attend lunch on Thursday November 21st, online ordering is available.
