Graduation Instructions:
Parents,
One week from today on June 29th, we will begin our graduation ceremonies.  Below are the directions for the evening’s activities.
  1. Please arrive at the Savin Rock Conference Center (6 Rock Street) fifteen minutes before your scheduled time slot. You received a piece of white card stock with your child’s name on it when you picked up his or her cap and gown. Please place that paper on the dash so your car can easily be put into his/her correct group. If you have misplaced it, please write your child’s name neatly in large, bold letters on a white piece of paper.
  2. School security and administration will assist you in lining up in the correct order. You must go with your assigned group, so please be there fifteen minutes before your assigned time.
  3. Once your group is ready to depart the conference center, a police officer will escort your group of cars to the West Haven High School parking lot. No one will be allowed entry directly into the  parking lot of West Haven High School You must be escorted from the Conference Center.
  4. Once you arrive in the WHHS parking lot, you will be directed to a parking spot. Please make sure you hand the white paper in, as we will be calling names from based on the papers handed in. . Your family will be assigned an empty parking space directly in front of the space you have parked in. Your family may stand in the empty parking space if they choose for a better view of the stage.  Anyone who is not in his or her vehicle must wear a mask at all times.
  5. Your graduate should stand at the front of the assigned spot with the white paper in his or her hand  and wait to be directed to the side of the stage.  Once your child’s name is called, he or she should walk toward the stage, entering the stage from the side closest to your vehicle. Each student will receive his/her diploma case on stage, and will have his/her picture taken by a professional photographer. The graduate should then proceed behind the stage to pick up their actual diploma.
  6. Families cannot leave their assigned space during the ceremony, and must proceed directly back to their car once the group concludes.
We cannot wait to welcome all of our graduates next week!
Stay Safe,
Dana Paredes

Congratulations to the third place and honorable mention winners in the 2020 Connecticut Foundation for Open Government’s Forrest Palmer High School Statewide Essay Contest Alana Orecchio and Yarid Tyran!

 

Alana   Yarid
Alana Orecchio, a junior at West Haven High School, won third prize of $300 in the 2020 Connecticut Foundation for Open Government’s Forrest Palmer High School Statewide Essay Contest. Alana wrote about the Killingly Board of Education decision to keep the “Redmen” mascot for Killingly High School although it was previously rejected as a racist symbol.   Alana wrote: “Overall, there is no legal obligation for the Killingly Board of Education to change its mascot under the First Amendment’s right to freedom of speech; however, as some students, teachers, and Native American groups in Killingly believe, the school board possesses a moral obligation to respect those tribes that were abused,” she wrote. “Changing the ‘Redmen’ mascot would fulfill this moral obligation.”

The contest is named in honor of the late Forrest Palmer, a decorated World War II veteran, who began the contest in 2000 when he was president of CFOG’s board of directors. CFOG is a nonprofit educational organization founded on the principle that open, transparent government is in the public interest. CFOG sponsors the essay contest to encourage thought and debate among students on public and freedom of information issues.

Yarid Tyran, also a junior at West Haven High School, won an Honorable mention award of $50. Yarid wrote about the N-word controversy at UCONN last fall.
