Senior Capping Ceremony

Graduation really comes into view when the entire school gathers for the Capping Ceremony just a few days before the big event. During this fun celebration, groups of seniors are called to the stage where, after a dramatic drumroll, they’re “capped” by their choice of fellow Penguins. While this tradition understandably comes with a mix of emotions as seniors transition from students to alumni, it is nonetheless one with plenty of smiles and priceless photo opportunities!
