Laurels Award Night

Laurels Night is an event with a dual purpose. The first is to recognize seniors who have earned scholarships for post-secondary education. We invite community groups such as Kiwanis, the Rotary, and others to come that night to officially present their scholarship awards.

The second purpose is to celebrate our Seniors’ academic successes. On Laurels Night, we present medals to our valedictorians and salutatorians, awards to our top scholars, and stoles to class and ASB officers.

To be honored at Laurels Night is a recognition of hard work!  If you have been awarded a scholarship let us know by bringing a copy of your award letter to the Counseling office.

You will receive an invitation from the Counseling office to attend Laurels if you are being recognized.

 

Class of 2024 Walk of the Grads

SKHS's tradition of the “WALK of the GRADS”.   Following graduation rehearsal seniors all have the option to ride buses to their previous middle school (or to choose one if they didn’t attend our district) to parade through the building, enjoying congratulations from previous teachers and staff and high-fives from the current middle school students.   

This is a fun way to begin celebrating graduation and to demonstrate to the incoming middle schoolers SK pride in our high school and what it feels like to be a graduating Wolf.

Many of our elementary schools also host Grad Walks...watch WTV, read the bulletin, and check social media for more information.
