Graduate Service Detroit

Orders

Once again, Graduate Service Detroit, Inc., representing Herff Jones, will be our vendor for the WB senior cap and gown.  Both WBHS and Lakers Online HS will be participating in the same ceremony with the same cap and gown. Cap and Gown orders must be made before December 20th, 2020. Herff Jones mailed home packets to Senior families on October 7th and sent follow up emails to all parents. Additionally, we are sending this information to families as an extra layer of communication to make sure that all Senior families have ample time to order their cap and gowns. WB Senior Caps and Gowns can be ordered two ways this year: 

  1. Orders can be made 24/7 at highschool.herffjones.com  
  2. Orders can be made by phone by calling (734) 725-5743

Please remember, you will no longer be able to wear the traditional white gown for ladies and green gown for gentlemen. The new gown is embossed with the school logo and is one color for all students.  

Payment Plans

Graduate Service Detroit, Inc. has payment plans available, which give you several months to pay for your cap and gown.  No student is ever denied walking at graduation who needs financial assistance, but you have to let us know now, not later.  If you are in need of financial assistance, please contact Dr. Griffin at Stephanie.Griffin2@wbsd.org

Your senior dues are incorporated into the cost of the cap and gown.  If you intend to use a cap and gown from the past two years, please contact Graduate Service Detroit, Inc. to pay your senior dues.  Senior dues are utilized by the district to cover certain graduation expenses.  You will not receive your diploma until your dues are paid.  If you need financial assistance to cover these costs, please contact Dr. Griffin immediately.  

Diploma Display

Also, Seniors and families must decide how they want their names displayed on their diplomas. Please keep in mind that diplomas are legal documents. As such, nicknames and/or abbreviated names are not acceptable for student diplomas. Families may choose to list students full name or first and last name only on their Senior’s diploma, for example. Please list how you would like your name listed on the diploma using the Google Doc below. The deadline for this is November 30, 2020. Please make sure that you complete this form before the deadline.
