Congratulations! Your hard work is about to pay off! You are graduating! To help you get ready for the big day, here are a few things you need to know. Use this as a reference and share the important to-dos and dates with your parents. Let the countdown begin! 

Thursday, May 14 | Last day of virtual learning | Congratulations! This is your last day of class! Woo-hoo! No semester exams this year, just end of the year assessments. But don’t worry, there’s still a few more days to hand-in assignments. 

Monday, May 18 | Last day to submit assignments | Assignments must be submitted no later than 3 p.m. to be included in your fourth quarter grades.

Monday, May 18, 3 - 5 p.m. | Check-out at Lehman Catholic | It’s your final check-out from Lehman! This year the check-out process will be handled drive-up style. Sometime between 3 and 5 p.m., please bring all items that you need to return to Lehman (athletic uniforms & equipment, books, laptops, fees, etc. ) in a box or bag, labeled with your name. Stay in your car and line up outside the doors to the athletic hallway. Someone from Lehman will be there to pick-up the items you are returning and hand-off the items from your locker. Alternate check-out date: Thursday, May 21 from 3 to 8 p.m.

The school building will be closed by the order of the Governor of Ohio. The restrooms will not be open. 

Friday, May 22 | All School Awards Virtual Celebration | Follow Lehman on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to celebrate the accomplishments of your fellow classmates. We will be sharing the awards typically recognized at our annual awards assembly. Check-in frequently to like, share, and comment. Award certificates will be distributed at check-out on May 18.

Friday, May 22, 8 p.m. | Honk Out | Since we weren’t able to have a clap out, we are having a honk out. Here’s how it works … Friends and family of Lehman are invited to the school to celebrate the Class of 2020. They will be parked in both parking lots waiting for you to parade through the lots and around the building in your cars.

For you … please gather in Dickman’s parking lot at 1991 St. Marys Avenue in Sidney at 8:15 p.m. Keep social distancing in mind and stay in your car at all times and drive safely. At approximately 8:30 p.m., an administrator from Lehman will lead the parade of seniors from Dickman’s to Lehman. Decorate your car, wear your colors, make signs, and make sure your horn is in working order. It’s time to celebrate!

The school building will be closed by the order of the Governor of Ohio. The restrooms will not be open. 

Friday, May 29 | Senior Survey DuePlease visit the Class of 2020 in Google Classroom to access the Senior Survey. Each senior must complete and submit a senior survey via Google Classroom.
