Ongoing Celebrations - A Message from the Senior Celebrations Committee

Seniors should use this link to submit their podcasts and senior profiles so we can all celebrate our seniors!  Friends, teachers, parents and Shaker Schools want to honor the class of 2021 and in that spirit of celebration, two "Senior Celebrations" have been created for all to enjoy! The first is a podcast, for seniors, and about seniors. Seniors simply press a button, hit record, and that's it! The second celebration is a Senior Profile. Seniors complete a form, answer a few questions, add a photo and we'll share it to social media!  Senior Yard Sign are also on the way. Stay tuned for more information! We are so proud of our seniors, so let’s finish their Shaker experience strong!

*Please note, all fees and fines must be paid before seniors can begin Senior Project, attend prom, or pick-up their diploma.
