    Families have been asking about seniors using a sibling’s or friend’s cap and gown from a previous year. There are two things to be aware of if you have a cap and gown from a previous year. There may be slight color differences in the blue gowns from year to year, which is fine, and you will want to order the stole and tassel for this graduating year. Families can go online to order 3 items separately if they need to. This is the direct link to ordering the tassel and stole only. The pricing on the link is with tax included: If you prefer to make the order over the phone, call Alysa Harris, Jostens Office Manager at 360-653-9102. Order now to have your order ready on Cap and Gown pick-up day, Thursday, May 27th.
