Senior Activities and Privileges
Senior Class Photo
The senior class photo is traditionally taken the first day of school to capture the entire group together at the very beginning of their final year at MTHS. The color photo appears in the Senior Section of our yearbook, Traces. Normal and appropriate attire is required for this photograph. Students who are not in compliance with our school dress code will not be allowed to sit for the photo.
Each year, our school photographer sets appointments for students to sit for senior portraits. Appointments/sitting times are set during the spring of their eleventh grade school year. Packages are available for purchase by students and their families. Senior portraits taken by the school photographer will appear in Traces.
Senior Portrait and Quote
Every senior is provided with a space in the designated section of the yearbook for inclusion of their name, portrait, and quote. Encrypted messages or those with double meanings will not be tolerated. Senior quotes which are not in good taste will be removed from the publication without notification to students or their family. Parents/guardians are urged to review senior quotes with their child prior to submission to the yearbook staff.
Important Events for Seniors
Senior Breakfast (May 28, 2021 @ The Mansion)
All students wishing to attend the Senior Breakfast must purchase a ticket through their class officers or class advisors. The cost of a ticket is determined based on several factors and will be announced closer to the date of the event.
Senior Prom (June 3, 2021 @ The Legacy Castle)
All attending students must purchase a “Prom Bid” through their class officers or class advisor. Students are permitted to invite a guest from another grade level or school. However, these guests must register with the class advisor and building administration. Students who bring guests from other schools must also complete a permission form for their guest. The cost of a Prom Bid is determined by the administration and class advisor based on the price per person as set by the outside venue with consideration of decorating and entertainment expenses, and available class funds.
Senior Dessert Feast (June 10, 2021 @ MTHS)
The event is sponsored by the Parent Teacher Council and Drug Awareness Council. The Dessert Feast is held in the MTHS cafeteria during a morning class period in the weeks preceding graduation. Arrays of desserts are provided by the PTC. Representatives from the DAC are present to discuss Project Graduation with the class. Students may purchase tickets for Project Graduation at this time.
Senior Awards Ceremony (June 10, 2021 @ MTHS)
This event is held to honor the various achievement and success of our Senior students. Throughout the year, information on scholarships can be found through Schoology and Naviance. Students who have been selected as winners for local scholarships or MTHS awards will be recognized at this ceremony.
Senior Picnic (June 16, 2021 @ Montville Township Rec.)
At the Senior Picnic, students will receive their yearbooks and caps and gowns. These items must be paid for in advance of this event through the yearbook advisors (yearbook) and class advisor (cap and gown). School attendance is mandatory on the day of the Picnic.
Graduation Rehearsal (June 23, 2021 @ MTHS)
Graduation rehearsal begins promptly at 8:30 a.m. with a brief meeting in the Auditorium for important information and instructions. Afterwards boys and girls will go to their 'check-in' areas so we can begin rehearing the procession. Once on the field (or in the case of inclement weather, the gym), we will preview the ceremony and call all students names to check for accuracy. At the end of the rehearsal, students will be issued their graduation tickets. Rehearsal will end when MTHS Administration releases the seniors.
Commencement (June 23, 2021 @ MTHS)
Commencement exercises are held on the evening of the final day of school. Students who have completed all requirements for graduation and are receiving a diploma may participate in this event. Students who wish to participate are required to attend graduation ceremony practices. Graduation is held on the Football Field where there is adequate seating available for all family members. In the event of inclement weather, commencement exercises are held in the MTHS Gymnasium where tickets will be limited.
Letter Regarding Commencement Attire
*These are annual events and only open to seniors unless indicated otherwise. All rules established in the MTHS Code of Conduct and by the Board of Education will apply at each function. Disciplinary action will be taken if any student violates these policies.
Student Drivers - Graduated Driver's License (GDL) Requirements
MTHS is working in conjunction with the Montville Township Police to ensure the safety of our young drivers. We are asking that all parents please reinforce the importance of adhering to the requirements of the Graduated Driver License (GDL). Members of the local police may begin to monitor student drivers coming to and leaving school to ensure compliance. Here are a few helpful links to the Motor Vehicle Commission (NJMVC) that can provide you with some information.
