    • A 3.0 cumulative GPA.
    • A member in good standing of an approved participating club.

***To earn a sash, a student must participate in the club/sport/fine art during grades 10-12 (or all years of eligibility when applicable).***

  • IF a student’s status changes and is no longer in good standing AFTER the FEBRUARY 1st cutoff, the advisor must send a rationale to the building administrators for review and administration will make the final decision as to whether a student will receive their honors sash.
  • The rationale for the February 1st cutoff date corresponds to the first semester cutoff for

Senior honors (GPA) and allows for timely ordering of the sashes.

  • Students who qualify will receive a RED SASH to complement the white gown OR a WHITE SASH to complement the RED GOWN.  
  • The four possible categories that will be printed on the sashes to identify the appropriate program(s) of each graduate are: ACTIVITIES, ATHLETICS, MARCHING BAND, OR MUSICAL PRODUCTIONS
