To all 2019 PVHS Graduates and Parents,


It is almost time for the most exciting part of your senior year! Graduation is just around the corner, and we would like to give you as much information as we can as we begin the planning process. The last day of school is Thursday, May 23rd. Graduation is the following week! Graduation will be held Friday, May 31st, 2019, at 8pm on the PVHS Football Field. Please plan accordingly.

Please read the following graduation requirements/expectations and return the attached acknowledgement/questionnaire by 3/29/2019. Please keep this letter to refer to for the upcoming events.

CAP & GOWN: A cap and gown is a requirement to walk in the graduation ceremony. If you have not yet ordered a cap and gown you may still do so at or by calling Jostens at 702-384-3300. You may also pick up an order form in the main office. Please be aware, the boys wear gold and the girls wear maroon. Jostens will be on campus Wednesday, March 27th, during lunch to hand out Cap & Gown and other items that you have previously ordered.


SEATING: The bleacher area is open to the public. Tickets will be issued for the field seating. Based on the current number of graduates and seats available, each student will receive 4 tickets. We also need to know if anyone in the field seating area will be using a wheelchair (please see questionnaire). Children 5 and under may sit on someone’s lap and would not need a ticket. In the event of inclement weather, the ceremony will be moved to the PVHS Gymnasium and only two tickets per graduate will be allowed entrance. There will be a red Trojan head stamped on the back of two of your tickets when you receive them during Graduation Practice on May 30th, 2019 if we need to move into the gymnasium.
