Graduation Information

Please subscribe to the Class of 2022’s Remind account. It is your responsibility to stay informed of the details for your graduation events. I will text out important reminders and Mr. Sena will text out college and financial aid info. We’ve used the same account since your freshman year, and so most of you are already enrolled. Find Remind Codes at cibola.aps.edu. Click “Programs” then “School Communication”.
