  1. Where doe parents go for the dinner on Friday. Are parents invited to the parade before the dinner. Thank you Matthew Martin


    • Parents are invited to the parade, which begins at 4:00 and is on the Football Field. There will be a nominal fee for the picnic and the location of it will be announced.


  2. The schedule posted above is for 2015. I am curious about the Friday night activities. My son said if parents come for the parade/picnic they can go home with them on Friday night. What time can they go home? Judging by the 2015 schedule it looks like it would be about 10:15pm.


    • Friday night the kids can leave after the final assembly which takes place at 7:30, routinely they are an hour, hour and a half. So, between that and going to the dorm where your son was staying, you may end up leaving the campus around 10:30. Hopefully this helped!
