You are here


Dear Lancer Families, devon.png

It is time to start thinking about graduation. It will be here before we know it.

We are working hard to plan a wonderful experience for your senior student including meeting with a parent group and with staff and students to get creative ideas for this important celebration.  

In this issue you will find important dates you may want to keep on hand.  

Just remember ... 136 days until June 12, 2020.  

Commencement Ceremony

La Follette’s Commencement Ceremony will be held on Friday, June 12th at 7:30 at the University of Wisconsin – Kohl Center located at 601 West Dayton Street, Madison, Wisconsin. We are fortunate to have access to this outstanding facility which provides ample seating, air conditioning and an excellent sound system. Tickets are not required for this event, allowing graduates to invite as many guests as they desire. More Information to follow.


Midwest Scholastic – Graduation Attire

Mark your calendars! Seniors who will be participating in the graduation ceremony on June 12th, are required to wear a (La Follette) cardinal cap & gown, silver stole and cardinal & silver tassel.

The week of January 13th, we distributed the graduation packets and order forms in your senior English classes. These packets contain a catalog for the cap and gown requirements along with all of your class of 2020 apparel including class rings.  Midwest Scholastic representatives will be at La Follette High School on Tuesday, January 28th in our commons during the lunch hour. The representatives will be collecting the order forms and payments as well as any question you may have. AFTER January 28th, all orders must be placed directly with Midwest Scholastic online or by phone. La Follette High School will not accept orders or payments.
