  • Commencement Announcements and Calling Cards

    Each student will receive one complimentary printed announcement. If you wish to order additional printed copies ($1.75 each), you may do so online at PolyPay by Friday, May 22. You may also order calling cards (small cards with the student’s name) to enclose with the announcement; these are $50 per hundred (the smallest quantity available) and come in a variety of typestyles. A sample of these typestyles is available on the announcement/calling card information form.

    Please note: While we are working to get all additional announcements ready for distribution, we may experience some shipping delays. Thank you for your patience.

  • Diplomas

    Seniors received an email through which they confirmed the spelling and pronunciation of their names to be used for all Commencement-related materials and activities. The student name on Poly transcripts is the name that will appear on the diploma.

  • Class of 2020 Time Capsule

    Each graduating class at Poly creates a time capsule in the form of a trunk filled with memorabilia from their time at Poly. The Class of 2020 will open its time capsule at their 10th reunion in 2030. Both seniors and their parents are encouraged to contribute items for the time capsule: school or family photos, a letter to your student, newspaper articles, prom mementos, etc. The school will include a copy of the senior video and other items associated with the class as a whole. Due to the school closure, 9x12 envelopes were delivered directly to seniors' homes in early May. Students and/or parents can fill their envelopes at home and they can drop them off at Poly when they complete their sign-out of senior year.
